    Hello, today I signed up for a trial of cPanel. When I click the download link, I get a txt file and nothing happens. I've tried this on my Windows 10 host as well as CentOS 7 guest. Both give the same result. I'm attaching a screenshot of the txt. Please take a look and reply with how to download cPanel for CentOS 7. Thanks!

    I don't think you understand, please read the page I linked you to. You don't actually download cPanel, you run a command on your server:

    "To install cPanel & WHM on your server, run the following command:"

    And that command, does this:

    "This command changes your session to the home directory, downloads the latest version of cPanel & WHM, and runs the installation script."

    You're trying to install this as user mheld. You need to do this as the 'root' user. Don't use sudo for this. Simply login as root and install the software.

    Hi, me again. I logged in as root and tried it. It worked a little but then I got an error. I will attach another screenshot. The error was with my hostname (localhost.localdomain.) What should I enter for host name? If this doesn't work I'll have cPanel support install it for me. I'll report back. Thanks for all the replies.

    Here's the pic.

    The docs are your best friend right now. For example, in your screenshot you're on your desktop. You shouldn't have a desktop.
    Installation Guide - System Requirements - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    From the docs:
