How To install cPanel and WHM


Make sure you are logged in as root.

 

1.  Ensure your resolvers are working by trying to resolve cpanel.net (cmd: nslookup cpanel.net).

 

2. Change directory into your home directory

    Command: cd /home

 

3. Download cPanel’s installer 

   Command :  wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest

 

3.1. If you get a ‘command not found’ error, you need to install wget. 

   Command:  yum install wget

 

4. Now run the installer using sh or bash 

   Command : sh latest 

 

4.1. If you get another ‘command not found’ error, you need to install Perl. 

   Command:  yum install perl

 

Once the installation is complete it’s not time to log into the WebHostManager (WHM) and go through the wizard. Point your browser to http://x.x.x.x.whm or http://x.x.x.x:2086/ (x will be replaced with your server IP)

 

You will be prompted for a user/pass, enter root as the user and enter your root password in the password field.  The wizard will now launch and ask you a few questions.  Once complete your system is ready to use!

 

NOTE: In order to run the cPanel software you must first be running a supported OS. cPanel lists their supported operating systems on their website at http://www.cpanel.net.  Although there are many to choose from not every OS listed works flawlessly. If you’re looking to have the least amount of problems and ease of administration we highly recommend you choose CentOS as your distro. (Considering Centos as Operating System)
