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.

Thanks!
Code:
# cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest

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:

Code:
mysql-version=5.6
3. As the root user, execute the following command to install the pango package:

Code:
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:

Code:
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:

Code:
cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest
Let me know if you encounter any issues with these steps.

Thank you.
