How to uninstall FASTPANEL®


If you want to switch from FASTPANEL® to a different control panel, reinstalling the operating system (OS) is the only way to proceed. Before doing so, it's crucial to back up all important data to an external storage. This will ensure you can restore your projects after the reinstallation.

FASTPANEL® can be uninstalled without disrupting the operation of sites. However, this will lead to consequences such as:

  • Stopping automatic renewal of SSL certificates from Let's Encrypt issued through FASTPANEL®.
  • Disabling backup tasks previously configured in FASTPANEL®.
  • You will be able to change site settings, create and edit users, mailboxes, FTP/SFTP accounts, etc. only through manual configuration.

If you are certain you want to uninstall FASTPANEL® and fully understand the consequences, you can do so by executing the following commands in the server console as root:


apt-get remove fastpanel2 fastpanel2-nginx


yum remove fastpanel2 fastpanel2-nginx

If you need to restore FASTPANEL® operation in the future, you can reinstall previously uninstalled packages. However, there is no guarantee that the control panel will resume correct operation after this.
To install FASTPANEL® packages use the commands:


apt-get update
apt-get install fastpanel2 fastpanel2-nginx


yum makecache
yum install fastpanel2 fastpanel2-nginx
