    Due to the way RHEL licensing works on AWS the cPanel installer fails.

    Is there any way to get it to work with the AWS licensing model?

    I don't want to use CentOS or the official cPanel Linux AMI provided - as we need to use RHEL for compliance purposes.

    Hello @jeromeza,

    We don't officially offer a cPanel & WHM AMI on AWS for RHEL at this time. While unsupported, you can perform the following steps to install cPanel & WHM on RHEL using AWS:

    1. As the root user, create the /root/cpanel_profile/cpanel.config file.
    2. As the root user, use a command line text editor such as vi to add the following line to the /root/cpanel_profile/cpanel.config file:

    3. As the root user, execute the following command to install the pango package:

    yum -y install pango
    4. Disable NetworkManager using the instructions documented here.

    5. As the root user, execute the following command to enable the 'Optional' repos for RHEL:

    yum-config-manager --enable rhui-REGION-rhel-server-extras rhui-REGION-rhel-server-optional
    6. As the root user, execute the following command to start the cPanel installation:

    cd /home && curl -o latest -L && sh latest
    Let me know if you encounter any issues with these steps.

    Thank you.
