    Greetings all,

    I work for a hosting company who uses Cpanel. We sell quite a few dedicated servers all running Redhat. I’m trying to reduce the time it takes to set a server up and I feel integrating Cpanel into a customized Redhat install would be a good idea.

    Has anyone looked at doing this? Is there documentation on Cpanel’s dependencies? Is there documentation on what files are touched by Cpanel? (So I can include them into the Cpanel package.) Would anyone find a Cpanel RPM useful?

    Take care,

    Steve

    It's a self extracting and self installing single file already. Why change it?

    Because it takes a significant amount of time to install and the install is interactive (meaning I have to baby sit it to answer questions). Not a big issue if you are installing it on one server. But if you are installing it on 20 servers, it's a different story.

    What OS are you installing it on? I don't have that much experience with it but I've installed about 6-7 times and each time I just start the install, then come back about 30 mins later and it's finished and I log into WHM.
