    It should still be available in cPanel. Perhaps you host chose to remove it.

    Nope... they've removed it. Post-Nuke is now the CMS. In another thread, they mentioned something about 'licensing issues' but haven't explained it (or ever really announced it, for that matter)

    Go on, have a guess
    I suspect that the licensing issues are that it's no longer released under the GPL/LGPL and you have to pay for updates now to keep it supported and secure.

    I've been looking around the phpnuke.org site, and haven't stumbled across anything that says it's no longer GPL. In fact, the footer of the site states it's GPL code.

    Yes, they're charging $10 to get the latest code directly from them, but the GPL doesn't prevent that. I have phpnuke 7.9 on my site... I didn't pay for it... am I missing something?

    cPanel seems to have been several version behind the latest phpnuke anyway, so it doesn't seem like that's an issue... the latest "public" version (read as: free) is 7.8, which isn't in cPanel. (I believe 7.6 was the latest)

    So, I'm confused as to what license issue they're quoting.

    It's still in the AddOnScripts (deprecated) section, which will go away.

    It's not in the new cPaddon Scripts Manager.
