How To Install Kloxo MR (Kloxo

Kloxo has become almost a dead project by now. There are so many bugs present in kloxo and no one seems to address the issues. Its sad to let go of a great control panel which was there to rescue when you needed a free control panel in the past. I used to recommend kloxo to anyone because of its simplicity and ease of use. But not anymore,

Kloxo-MR is a fork of original LXCenter’s kloxo project and its developed by Mustafa Ramadan, hence the “MR”. Kloxo MR not only fixes the bugs of Kloxo but it has many additional features like the ability to switch to Nginx server. Its nice to see kloxo getting some fixes and going forward.Here are the specs taken from their web site,

Now run the installer as it says

Visit  youip:7778 on your web browser to view the control panel and default user name and password is “admin”. I have played around it little bit and it worked great. However I didn’t tested it by hosting a web site but you are open to do it. Kloxo-MR has a support forum here  and you can get feedback to your problems from the developer and the community on there.
