    I understand that for a successful installation experience of cPanel, it is advisable that certain things not already be present on my server.

    I assume one of them would be Apache, but what about PHP and MySQL (these are the only items that I think would be included in the server image, if I didn't say anything.

    Are there other considerations I should entertain?

    I would like to attempt this installation as few times as possible.

    If this has already been asked/answered, my apologies. It's hot here today.

    PHP and MySQL should not be installed on the server prior to cPanel installation. cPanel will install all services that it controls or configures.

    Ideally, a new server that is going to have cPanel installed should have only SSH and yum installed. The cPanel installer will install everything else.
