    Hi all

    This will be the first time that I'll setup my own dedicated server to install cPanel. So, I'm looking for a kickstart file for CentOS, indicating what I need to install, and what not.

    If anyone would be so kind as so share theirs, It would be nice :)

    tia!

    thanx, but I don't want to download a 3GB ISO just for the kickstart file. We pay a lot for bandwidth :(

    Thanx, that was what I was looking for.

    P.S. Does a new cPanel server really need all those extra's? I can see a lot of scripts which I don't think could be needed for a cPanel server

    The package list isn't optimized. It's simply a convenience kickstart to facilitate install of cPanel

    Actually that is a semi-optimized package list. Most of them are php / gd deps.

    There are a bunch of Gnome and Cups related packages in there also.

    That's what I'm talking about :)

    I have a differenc question for you, seeing that you are from cPanel :)

    To save on bandwidht (we're going to host cPanel based VPS's), would it be a problem if I install the "latest cPanel" script on a network via a proxy server, which will then cash all the installed files for future installations?

    Secondly, would it be a problem if I install cPanel on servers with private IP's (192.168.0.0/24) before they go to the DC (collocation) and get their public IP's on the DC's network? Since we pay per MB for bandwidth, I don't want to pay for the same downloads everytime I need to deploy a VPS. Or could it even be possible to download all the cPanel scripts and save to a CD / the main server's HDD for installation purposes?

    The main issue with internal IPs is even though the software will likely install, the actual cPanel/WHM software will not function without a publicly visible IP address that is licensed. As a result, you could install the software but you would be unable to use any cPanel/WHM software to configure the server before going to the colocation facility.

    Depending on bandwidth costs, you may wish to look into setting up your facility with cPanel Fast Update. Information about Fast Update is available at: http://www.cpanel.net/partners/fast-update/index.htm

    cPanel Fast Update will actually not help you save bandwidth as it would have to be open to the public. Caching the installer file also would not work well as we update it quite often.

    [edit]
    I stand corrected. There have been changes to the update system that will save you bandwidth with one of these if you are a datacenter. I unfortunately got the memo a little late on this one.

    that won't really help me at all, since we're in South Africa, so it doesn't matter where in the USA the downloads come from, it's the same.
