Installing cPanel on CentOS 6

Problem

The following document will outline the steps required to install cPanel on Linux. We will assume that you have already purchased your cPanel license. If not, you can get one with your server order with eSecureData

tl;dr

yum update -y
cd /home
wget http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest
sh latest
/usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

Solution

The installation process for cPanel on Linux is pretty straightforward. cPanel provides a bash script that will run through the installation for you. First, navigate to the home directory.

cd /home

Next, download the cPanel installation script.

wget http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest

Run the script

sh latest

This process takes a very long time.

Now all that is left is to activate:

/usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

Open up a browser and navigate to https://[YourIP]:2087 and log in with your root credentials.
