Hello! I am trying to get my cPanel up for a website project me and a few friends are doing. I have the latest version of CentOS 7 installed on a Virtual Machine.

I am stuck on accessing the panel itself. I have opened several ports that have been found on the internet, and none have let me log into the panel itself.

Steps I have done
1. Activated domain
2. Installed cPanel thru yum
3. Got the message saying go to https://IP:3087 to access the panel
4. Went to https://IP:3087 - failed to load a webpage
5. Opened ports: 3389,2087,8080,33306 on BOTH TCP and UDP.
6. Cried a little that I can't figure this out.


I had port 80 opened for a windows VM (for IIS) but have switched it over to the CentOS box assuming that would work.


ANY help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks for helping!

I have looked at that document and opened reconfigured some of the ports. I eneded up reinstalling everything for CENTOS and now I decided to re-read everything too.

When I go to execute /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/configure_firewall_for_cpanel I get a return with bash: /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/configure_firewall_for_cpanel: no such file or direcory

cPanel IS installed, its just going onto the panel itself.

like when I type in chrome: https:IP:2087 nothing happens.

( i realised I didn't specify this above in my post yesterday! sorry! )

Hello,

The output in the image you provided is normal (those two services won't start if the corresponding features are not enabled).

As far as access to WHM over port 2087, run the following command to verify the cpsrvd process is listening for connections on those ports:

Code:
netstat -lnp | grep :208
Also, can you verify that access to port 2087 isn't blocked by your home router or by your ISP? For instance, can you test it from another connection to rule out any issues with your local workstation?

Thank you.

Hello, Sorry it has been a few days, I've had some stuff to do...

I did some research while I was waiting on your response and I went ahead and re-re-installed CENTOS. I added GNOME instead of having the straight console.

I reinstalled using this tutorial: How to Install cPanel and WHM in CentOS 7

From there CENTOS installed cPanel and did its thing, then it automatically restarted.

I ran the command
netstat -lnp and got the following response: - Removed -
I also ran
grep :208 and got this response: - Removed -

I figured it out...

When you use CENTOS make sure to use the GUI menu version because for me I had to connect to the pannel thu the CENTOs, not my personal-computer....

Hello,

Using a GUI such as Gnome with CentOS is unsupported with cPanel installations. Accessing cPanel & WHM from a personal computer is common behavior and should work fine. We're happy to take a closer look via a support ticket if you'd like further assistance with why it's not working in your particular case:

Create Support Ticket - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
