    I don't think there will be any issues while you install cPanel on virtual server. Please go ahead :)

    Yes you can install cPanel on a virtual environment. Please check to make sure your OS that your using is supported. The most common OS is CentOS which is fully compatible with cPanel. All of the servers I manage are running on CentOS 5.7 and we rarely have any issues.

    You can install cPanel with the following:

    1. yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ make

    2. cd /home

    3. wget -N http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest

    4. sh latest

    5. /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

    Make sure you have a VPS license. I know you can get them from a bunch of different providers normally for around $15.00 usd.

    I recommend that you review our installation instructions before proceeding:

    Installation Guides

    The process is the same on a VPS or dedicated server. Make sure to set a valid fully-qualified hostname (format host.domain.tld, not simply a domain, not starting with www) and to install a minimal installation of the operating system. There should be no graphical desktop environment (X Window, GNOME, KDE), no Web server, no mail server, no FTP server. The cPanel installer will install all of the services that it configures or controls, and there is no need for a graphical environment on a server, because cPanel provides a graphical environment in a Web browser.

    Ideally, the server that is to have cPanel installed should have only a working yum and SSH, no other services.
