If you get the message “ERROR: The certificate of ‘install.keyhelp.de’ is not trusted.“, you have to add “–no-check-certificate” as a wget parameter. Or install the “ca-certificates” package with the command “apt-get install ca-certificates”.
After executing the command, KeyHelp will guide you through the installation. Afterwards you can immediately use your new server management tool without any restrictions.

The server hosting panel KeyHelp is developed by us – the Thuringian hosting provider Keyweb – and made available to the public free of charge.
As a data center operator and hosting provider with over 25 years of experience, we know exactly that excellent hardware with high-quality workmanship also requires reliable operating systems and the best possible server administration. Only with coordinated software and professional configuration of all system functions can the full potential of servers be realised.
We rely on Linux-based operating systems for our servers out of conviction. Open source operating systems offer increased security compared to other operating systems, are powerful in the long term, fast, sustainable and resource-saving. And above all, there are no licence fees!
Already with the delivery of our first servers, customers asked for a reliable and not unnecessarily bloated administration software that was a understandable as well as free alternative to Plesk, Confixx or cPanel. That was the birth of KeyHelp.
After the optimised new edition in 2014, the server control panel could initially only be used exclusively by Keyweb customers. Today, KeyHelp runs on thousands of servers and is available to everyone. As a real alternative to standard server control panel software, we would like to further develop it together with you as a community. And we want to do it the way our customers have always wanted it: free of charge, reliable, understandable, for an unlimited number of domains and easy to use even without instructions or training.
Since 2020 , at the request of our KeyHelp users, we have offered additional professional functions for more specific server management options with KeyHelp Pro.
