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 is providing complete website management and it makes running your business quick and easy through the intuitive and easy to use interface.
Before you start to install cPanel on your server, please, make sure your server meets the system requirements of cPanel. Also, please 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. However, 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 on which 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.
Please create a screen session using this command:
If your system does not have installed screen, you can install it with this command:
yum -y install 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 the server again and type screen -r in order to enter in the screen session.
Accessing WHM and cPanel
Once the installation is completed, you can sign in 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
