MagicSpam can be installed through either the Automatic Installation process which utilizes the One-Command Installation method or the Manual Installation process which consists of the Download and Install steps. Regardless of the method of installation, the license key needs be registered through the Registration Process.
The Automatic Installation process is the recommended method to install MagicSpam as it automatically detects the web panel, operating system and architecture of the server before installing the appropriate MagicSpam product based on the license key and detected server information.
In this guide, you will learn how to install MagicSpam on your server and register your license key, including the following information:

Before starting, make sure to have the following at hand:
- information on the web panel, operating system and architecture of the server
- access to the command line terminal as root user on the server
- a valid MagicSpam license key
The Automatic Installation process utilizes the One-Command Installation method which allows you to download and install MagicSpam using a single command at the terminal. Simply run the following terminal command as the root user on the web panel / email server, replacing the <license key> placeholder with your valid MagicSpam license key.
Code: Select all

The Manual Installation process consists of the Download and Install steps.

If you did not directly download the MagicSpam installation package to your web panel server, then the next step is to transfer the previously downloaded MagicSpam installation package to your remote web panel / email server.
