cpanel Installation

CPanel is one of the best webhosting control panel right now. It is a paid software and you need to buy a license to use the control panel. There will be a 15 day trial allowed and to check the license you can use the site


Actually the installation is done through a script called latest. We need to download the script to our home directory and run it

So the first step is to change your working directory to /home

1.     cd /home — Opens the /home directory.

Now we need to download the script from cpanel site

2.     wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest — Fetches the latest installation files from cPanel's servers. 

Now we can execute the script and it will do the rest

3.     sh latest — Opens and executes the installation files. 

If licensing fails (due to a strict firewall or modified IP), run the command /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt to activate your cPanel & WHM license.
