Pterodactyl Installation Script ✨Security✨All Major Linux Distros

Other Pterodactyl Installation Script ✨Security✨All Major Linux Distros v1.1

What does this script do?
As the title says, it will install & upgrade the Pterodactyl Panel ( for you!

My goal is to make the script as configurable as possible, to support as many operating systems as possible and to use the latest software on the market. Right now it will install:
  • The latest panel (0.7.13)
  • The latest daemon (0.6.12)
  • The latest standalone SFTP (1.0.4)
  • The latest phpMyAdmin (4.8.5)
  • Fonix's themes

The script also uses the latest dependencies (MariaDB 10.3, PHP 7.3, NodeJS 10) for its installation.

To enhance the security of the installation, the script will also enable https, block unused ports and add IPtables rules to protect your server by default.

What operating systems are supported?
All major operating systems are supported!

This includes:
  • Ubuntu: 19.04, 18.10, 18.04, 16.04
  • Debian: 9, 8
  • Fedora: 30, 29
  • CentOS: 7
  • RHEL: 7
RHEL 8 support will come soon :love:

What installation options do I have?
You have the option to
  • Only install the panel
  • Only install the daemon
  • Install both the daemon and panel
  • Install the standalone SFTP server (after the daemon has been installed & configured)
  • Install phpMyAdmin (after the panel has been installed)
You can also choose between Nginx and Apache2 as your web server.
Fonix theme options are also availble!

In case you forget your MariaDB root password, there is also an option to reset it.

What am I protected from?
  • SSH Bruteforce
  • Port Scanning
  • Bad/Suspicious Packets

What prerequisites do I need?
As the pterodactyl daemon requires docker, you will need a VPS with hardware virtualization or Dedicated Server if you want to install it. OpenVZ, LXC and Virtuozzo are not supported. Please consult with your host to see if their OpenVZ/LXC servers can run docker or not.

Supported Virtualizations:
  • KVM
  • Hyper-V
  • Xen-HVM
  • OpenVZ 7

The script will generate an SSL to secure both the daemon and panel, therefore you would need a domain to use it. You can get a free domain here:

1. Unzip and upload the script to your server in /root
2. Type
chmod u+x ./ ./
