    I'm thinking of buying Cpanel for my server.

    The main question is. If i buy this and only this software will i be able to use the scripts like wordpress and joomla with the one click install.

    I'm on shared hosting now using cpanel.. and all i do is select the domain and click and word press gets installed.

    Also do i need anything else for the MySQL to work ?... or does cpanel include the database ?

    cheers.

    You will have access to some installed cPaddons like wordpress, coppermine gallery and a few others, but no Joomla.

    A fully setup cPanel server does include database creation, yes.

    From your post it sounds like you're looking to get your own server or VPS. These can be picked up with cPanel already installed from many hosting companies that may offer extended functionality including Fantastico, or/and other 3rd party addons that will provide you with one click installation of many scripts.
