    Would like to create a VMware VPS template that has cPanels installed already. This way we can automate the creation process by the customer.

    Doing this manually would take a very long time if 20 customers signed up.

    Is it possible to do one fresh CentOS install, one fresh cPanel install?

    and then just make a template of this? Some things (like license) will need refreshing.

    Does anyone else do this?

    What would I need to do when redeploying this image?

    Obviously I would need to:

    - Change /etc/{networking stuff}
    - machine has new hostname, IP address as default
    - Do some magic to erase cPanel license info so refreshed (HOW?)
    - {What else?}
    - Run upgrades (security, cPanel)

    Or is there a guide out there or some post which covers this?

    Thank You!

    Hello :)

    You can search for third-party templates from other companies on a search engine, but cPanel does not publish any template files. Cloud Linux offers some images at:

    Installation > VMware Images

    Thank you.
