Before you install zPanel you should have a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04. Your Ubuntu instance can not have the following software installed: MySql, Apache, Bind, Dovecot, Postfix, proFTPd. If you will be getting support from zpanel in the future, please make sure to read the detailed pre-install checklist.

These instructions are for a 32bit installation, if you want to do a 64bit install just change "installer-10-1-0-ubuntu-32.sh.x.tar.gz" to "installer-10-1-0-ubuntu-64.sh.x.tar.gz". You can check your version of ubuntu by using uname -a, if it says "i386" anywhere you are using 32bit and "x86_64" means 64bit.

First make sure your system has curl and at installed.

sudo apt-get install curl at
