    Installation method for cPanel on dedicated server or VPS is same. The installer detects that whether its dedicated server or VPS and then installs the specific cPanel version. Here is how you can install cPanel:

    If you can't access cPanel/WHM then first thing to check would be that cPanel service is running on the server. I assume that you know how to check it from command line. You will need to login to server as a root user using SSH. Putty can be used for connecting to SSH. Once you verify that the cPanel service is running (Look the status of cpsrvd in the output of service cpanel status command) then you should make sure that there is no firewall blocking cPanel/WHM ports. If you have not installed manually then there will be the default iptables firewall that you can flush/stop (iptables -F or service iptables stop)to check cPanel/WHM access.
