Good morning everyone! In this post I am going to show you the basic steps for a clean installation of cPanel/WHM in the most simplified steps. What I will mention below is applicable to any VPS or dedicated server that runs CentOS 4.x/5.x, has minimum 512mb Ram and more than 4GB hard disk available. cPanel is, indeed, a powerful platform, but demanding as well in terms of resources.

The first thing you need to do is login as root and then disable SELinux. Just type /etc/selinux/config and make sure the following values exist in the file:

SELINUX=disabled
SELINUXTYPE=targeted


Lets begin…

STEP 1
cd /home | wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest

The above command will download the installer in your home directory. Now lets run the installer:

STEP 2
sh latest

The Step 2 will initiate the installation process which takes approximately 2 hours, depending on your server’s speed. Once it finishes, you need to active your cPanel/WHM application:

STEP 3
/usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

…and you are done! cPanel/WHM use the port 2086, so to access it just go to http://your-server-ip:2086/

I hope this was helpful to everyone who attempted for the first time to install cPanel/WHM.

STEP 3 is unnecessary, because when cPanel instaling, it automaticaly take CD-KEY. In rare conditions need perform STEP 3.

Just to remind,
Before installing make sure you
1.) Deactivate the firewall.
2.) Disable SELinux.

Yes it probably does but I read it was advised to update the OS before launching installation.

With yum update MeteorPages and you can also do a kernel upgrade if you don't want to use the generic one.

Is this for a nulled copy of cPanel or a legit version?

I'm presuming it's for a legit version.
Nulled software is forbidden on this forum.
In fact it's forbidden anywhere.

Also, thanks for the tutorial.
As soon as my dedicated server is setup I'll be needing this.

I didnt think it was possible to null cPanel. And as said no need to run the key update command either.q
