There are a few things that need to be done when installing CPanel on a Centos Machine.

NOTE: The only OS compatible is CENTOS.

1. The Hostname needs to be a FQDN (Full quilified Domain Name)

2. The Firewall needs to be Disabled on Centos

nano /etc/sysconfig/selinux

3. Disable iptables.

# service iptables save
# service iptables stop
# chkconfig iptables off

4 Installation procedure:

cd /home
# wget -N
# sh latest

Not: you will see a bunch of “+” signs, it takes about 1.5 hours to install.

After the installation is “done”, please poit your browser to:

https://:2087 for the configuration menu.

IMPORTANT: When installing CPANEL in VPS, DO NOT modify any iptables settings on the container, otherwise you will not be able to connect

NOTE: If having issues with dependencies at installation stage, please add the following command rpm -e bind-chroot and run the installation again.

You may also need yum-utils install for package clean which can be done by command yum install yum-utils
