    Dear All,

    i am new to cPanel and trying to configure it on our EC2 CentOS server so we can start our own hosting server for our clients and company sites,

    i have followed all the instructions written on cPanel for installing it on CentOS , it goes well normally it takes 180 to 200 Minutes and says congratulation bla bla ..

    access your site via http://ip:2087 ... but when i try this i cant , cPanel ask me to browse my NAT IP internal which i cant ? as i have static ip of EC2 which NATs to local ip.

    i can browse apache server if i go without secure channel and without the port mentioned. means only with
    http://dedicated IP

    i have done :

    firewall off ,
    2087 port open from security group of EC2 .
    fresh system with minimum , perl , yum , wget and cPanel ..

    i have not done :

    any dns settings , no dns server configured ... no domain name ..

    Any tip guys for me ???

    Hello :)

    There is a three-part blog series on building a cPanel hosting environment on Amazon AWS at:

    EC2 | cPanel Blog

    Note that while it should work if setup correctly, it's not natively supported.

    Thank you.
