Hello cPanelLauren I always do enjoy your replies and solutions, thorough and aiming for a solution.
Hello cPanelLauren, the answer I did get from cPanel support regarding Nat Mapping:
I agree its not a straightforward process. We do have that blog post mentioned above as well as the documentation in our knowledge base here: How to Install cPanel on Google Compute Engine Through The Google Marketplace | cPanel & WHM DocumentationRegarding WHM and Google Cloud Platform GCP, and CentOS 7 VM, it is absolutely not a straightforward install; documentations and instructions are lacking generally speaking on the internet and cPanel site or documentation sans any that is valuabe; and no true pre exposition to the evironment of WHM on Google Cloud VM.
The instructions above are based on the cPanel Marketplace image which is an image that is geared for cPanel specifically so things like Network Manager which is definitely not something we support would already be disabled. - The need for Network Manager to be disabled is noted in our installation-guide networking requirements as well: System Requirements | cPanel & WHM Documentation- cPanel does not support NetworkManager, you have toDisable NetworkManager before running cPanel installation:
I believe we address this concern in the document as well here:- WHM / cPanel will install on a server that resides on a NAT-configured network:
Here, you will run into an issue with Google Cloud Platform when trying to create or reserve an additional 'Static internal IP Address'. Otherwise, you cannot add an External IP Address to WHM (thus to be assigned to an account/domain, cPanel, unless if I do create an additional static internal IP Address; then route or forward or bind (what ever is the right term for so) the Internal IP Address to External IP Address.
https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-base/web-services/how-to-install-cpanel-on-google-compute-engine-through-the-google-marketplace/#configure-a-static-ip-address said:Configure a static IP address.
By default, Google assigns ephemeral IP addresses to VM instances. They will remain assigned to the server as long as the VM is active, but will change if you turn off and then turn back on a VM.
To configure a static IP address for the server, perform the following steps:
- Under Assign a static external IP address to your VM instance, click Learn more. A help interface will appear.
- Click Go to the External IP addresses page.
- Click the arrow next to Emphemeral.
- Select Static. A new window will appear.
- In the Name text box, enter a name for the IP address.
- Click Reserve.
Can you let me know if there are any questions you have or issues with configuring the instance you still see after reading the documentation I provided?Do you think, cPanelLauren, that within a short time, a cPaenl.net can issue a practical instructions on how to setup and configure WHM on Google Cloud Platform VM; or assist with the steps I did mention above?
