How do I install Pterodactyl on a VPS or dedicated server?

Welcome to this tutorial where we will guide you through the installation of the Pterodactyl panel on your VPS or dedicated server. Pterodactyl is an ideal open-source solution for managing game servers, allowing easy management via a web browser.

For those who prefer visual guidance, we have also prepared a video version of this tutorial.

  • A VPS or dedicated server with at least 2GB of RAM. We recommend 4GB for more flexibility.
  • Root access via SSH to your server.
  • The Debian 12 operating system.
  • An SSH client software (e.g., PuTTY, Windows 10 terminal, or any other client of your choice).


Step 1: SSH Connection to the Server

Open your terminal or SSH client and connect to your server using the following command:

ssh root@your_domain_or_IP

If this is the first connection, accept the RSA key by entering yes, then enter your root password.

Step 2: System Update

Once connected, start by updating your system to ensure all packages are up to date:

apt update && apt upgrade -y

Step 3: Installation of Dependencies

Install the necessary dependencies such as curl and wget:

apt install -y bash curl wget

Step 4: Download and Run the Installation Script

Retrieve the installation script from GitHub using curl or wget:

bash <(curl -s

Follow the on-screen instructions to choose what you want to install (Panel, Daemon, or both).

Step 5: Panel Configuration

The script will guide you through configuring the database, creating an administrator user, and configuring your time zone. Make sure to choose a strong and unique password for your database and the administrator user.

Step 6: Securing the Panel with SSL

The script also offers to configure email sending and secure your panel with an SSL certificate. Follow the instructions to complete these steps.

Step 7: Access to the Pterodactyl Panel

Once the installation is complete, you can access your Pterodactyl panel via the browser using the IP address of your server or the configured domain name.


Congratulations, you have successfully installed the Pterodactyl panel on your server. You can now create game servers, manage users, and more, all from an easy-to-use web interface.
