    In the new year I will have another batch of servers to set up and I'd like to add a degree of automation to this process by copying pre-configured files onto the servers after the initial cpanel installation is complete.

    I already do this for some of the config files but I'd like to extend this to things like "tweak settings", feature lists, packages and other configuration settings for WHM that will be the same for all our servers.

    Does anyone have a list of files in the WHM installation that can be pre-configured and overwritten? I'd like to set up one server then copy some of the config files over to the other servers so I dont have to go through the ticking of boxes multiple times.

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    For the most part, when it comes to settings, you can just copy the files.

    cPanel Update Settings: /etc/cpupdate.conf
    Basic Config: /etc/wwwacct.conf
    Tweak Settings: /var/cpanel/cpanel.config
    Feature Lists: /var/cpanel/features (one file for each feature list)
    Packages: /var/cpanel/packages (one file for each package)
    Custom EA3 profiles: /var/cpanel/easy/apache/profile/custom (one file for each profile)

    More file locations can be determined from the Troubleshooting presentation from our 2007 cPanel Conference:

    There may be a way to set a default EA3 profile to use during the installation process. However, offhand, I do not recall how to do this.
