    How easy is it to setup cpanel?

    What information do I need. How much of the server setup process does it automate?

    Hi Ryein,

    It is a very easy process. You need to buy license for the IP to which your are going to install cPanel. After that you can install cPanel through a script which is an easy process. Please go through the documentation for more details.

    Let me know if you have any other doubts.

    To learn more about cPanel and what it can control and automate on your server, I recommend the following area on our site:

    Overview - cPanel Inc.

    A link is provided on that page to a demo, where you can see the different interfaces provided for the server administrator and domain/account administrators. You may also want to look at our WebHost Manager and cPanel documentation:

    WHM User Guide
    cPanel User Guide

    Please note that, before installing cPanel, you need a minimal installation of the operating system. Red Hat and CentOS offer this installation option when you install the operating system. The only services that the cPanel installer needs to be installed on the server are the SSH daemon and yum. cPanel will install everything else that it configures or controls. A graphical user interface, such as X Window/XOrg, GNOME or KDE should not be installed, and neither should Apache, FTP or mail services. The cPanel installer will install everything that cPanel needs except for SSH and yum.

    Though cPanel is very simple to install - once the server's underlying operating system is installed and configured, the installer runs without any interaction from the user at all - we do offer complimentary installation assistance. If you would like for us to install cPanel on your server, you can submit a ticket and we will be happy to assist you.

    Basically, it's all about preparation. Do the minimum install like Jared says, the actual installation becomes easy.

    wget layer1.cpanel.net/latest
    sh latest

    your done just make sure your ip is licensed from a cpanel reseller.

    I did want to mention that we have ISOs for CentOS 5.4 (which will automatically update on yum update to the latest CentOS 5 after the installation) at Downloads - cPanel Inc. location. You can pick 32bit or 64bit architectures there.

    Also, please ensure that SeLINUX is set to disabled in /etc/selinux/config file for the cPanel installation:

    Code:
    SELINUX=disabled
    You can see the selinux status by running this command:

    Code:
    sestatus
    It should return:

    Code:
    SELinux status:		disabled
    If it does not, then edit the config file to change to disabled and reboot the machine before installing cPanel.

    Hello,

    Have you installed cPanel or are you getting some license error? If you are getting license error make sure that the IP is licensed. You can verify the license using the URL http://www.verify.cpanel.net
