How to install?

Like shown in the blog How to install LAMP/LNMP on rock64 with aapanel, now we can create a new site in the aapanel, for example, with rock64's IP address. Here we don't need the ftp and database.
After doing that, we can access the folder, like:

# we need the permit to access the folder, because now it's owner is www
cd /www/wwwroot/rock64_IP

and, we can get the file needed with git:

git clone
cp -R Pi-Utility .
chmod -R 777 .

Now, you can access the pi dashboard by typing the rock_64's IP in the browser.
