How to install cPanel on my server?

cPanel is one of the most popular Linux-based control panels for managing websites and web hosting accounts. cPanel provides complete website management, and it makes running your business quick and easy through the intuitive interface.

 

Getting started

Before you start installing cPanel on your server, please, make sure your server meets the system requirements of cPanel. Also, make sure that you have an active cPanel license. If you have ordered a cPanel license through VPSBG client area, it will be activated immediately after the order is paid. You can check your cPanel license using this tool.

 

Installing cPanel on your server

In order to install cPanel, you will need access to the server where you want to install cPanel. Please sign in as root (privileged) 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.

Create a screen session using this command:

screen

If your system does not have installed screen, you can install it with this command:

yum -y install screen

After you create a session, 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 into the server again and type screen -r in order to enter the screen session.

 

Accessing WHM and cPanel

Once the installation is completed, you can sign into the WHM via this URL: HTTPS://YOUR_SERVER_IP:2087

The cPanel control panel (client-side) is accessible through this URL: HTTPS://YOUR_SERVER_IP:2083
