    To begin your installation, use the following commands:

    Code:
    1. cd /home — Opens the directory /home.
       2. wget -N http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest — Fetches the latest installation file from the cPanel servers.
       3. sh latest — Opens and runs the installation files.
       4. /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt — Activates your license after installation.

    Another question reg. Cpanel on CentOS 6.2(min install i386):

    During pre install I run yum grouplist and find "E-mail server"
    Should that be removed too??? Maybe a dumb question, if no one bother to answer I think I leave it

    It contains postfix, cronie, cronie-anacron and crontabs. I sure want my crond to run but will postfix mess up my cpanel install in any way?

    Ty for any answers!

    The Docs do cover all of this. You might want to spend a few minutes and read thru it to save yourself some time and trouble:

    Yes.

    Remove it.

    A CentOS or Red Hat server that is going to have cPanel installed needs a minimal installation of the operating system. What we tell customers in our ticket system is that, ideally, the server needs to have only yum and SSH installed.

    The cPanel installer will install every service that cPanel configures or controls. Specifically, you need to make sure that the following yum groups are not installed before you install cPanel:

    Code:
       DNS Name Server
       FTP Server
       GNOME Desktop Environment
       GNOME Software Development
       Horde
       Java
       Java Development
       KDE (K Desktop Environment)
       KDE Software Development
       Mail Server
       Mono
       MySQL Database
       Ruby
       Virtualization
       Web Server
       Windows File Server
       X Software Development
       X Window System
    Remove all of these groups before you start to install cPanel. Each of these groups has at least some possibility of interfering with cPanel. The cPanel installer will install literally everything that cPanel needs, except for SSH and yum. SSH and yum need to be working before you start the cPanel installation.

    Also, make sure that the server has a fully-qualified hostname that is properly set before you start the cPanel installation. localhost, or simply a domain, will not work. The hostname must be fully-qualified, in the format host.domain.tld. mydomain.com is not valid, but server.mydomain.com is. Also, do not begin the hostname with www. It is important to set the hostname before installing cPanel, or there will be problems that will need to be fixed after the installation.

    We do offer free installation. You can request it by simply submitting a ticket.

    in install docs it says "Mail Server" but in yum grouplist there is "E-mail Server". Is that the same thing or different and should that be removed also?

    Remove it as well. A server that is to have cPanel installed needs only a working yum, sshd and Perl. The cPanel will automatically install literally everything else that cPanel needs.
