How to Install cPanel & WHM on my Server?

cPanel makes it easy for Anyone to Run a Website. There’s no need for Website Administrators or full-on Tech Teams because all of your Tools are Available within the Powerful Graphical User Interface in your Browser. From the cPanel Dashboard, you can easily install Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress or OpenCart, manage your Backups, Databases, Email, Domain Names and much more.

Getting Started

Before you start to install cPanel on your Server, please, make sure your Server meets the System Requirements of cPanel.

Installing cPanel on your Server

In order to Install cPanel, you will need Access to the Server on which you want to install cPanel. Please log in as root User via SSH. We recommend that you install cPanel within a screen session. The Screen Session will create a Shell Session that will stay Active if a Network Disruption (between you and the server) occurs and your cPanel Installation will not be Discontinued.

Install screen on your system if it doesn't already have it then create a screen session with this Command:

yum -y install screen && screen

After you Create a Session, please type this Command to install cPanel on your Server:

cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest

Running this Command will begin the cPanel Installation. If a Network Disruption occurs, you can sign in to the Server again and type screen -r in order to enter in the Screen Session.

Accessing WHM & cPanel

Once the Installation is Completed, you can sign in to the WHM (and complete the wizard from its web-based interface) via this URL: https://your_server_ip:2087/

The cPanel Control Panel (client-side) Web-Based Interface is Accessible through this URL: https://your_server_ip:2083/
