    cPanel isn't in the ports, you have to download it manually and install. It also requires a fair amount of manually intervention at times and you need to be fairly good with FreeBSD administration.

    You can always download cPanel from http://layer1.cpanel.net/ but remember you'll need a valid license to be able to use it.

    Thanx for fast response. Of course... I am gonna buy the lisense. I have two questons:
    1- Where I can buy the lisense?
    2- Since this is the first time that I come to cPanel site... from which link I should download the edition for BSD? Is it from Layer1? Or Layer2? 'coz On Layer 2 I can see FreeBSD but there is no link on it... :)

    1) You can buy the license directly from cPanel in the cPanel store, https://www.cpanel.net/store/. Also, you might want to check out some of the official partners for license prices as they tend to be cheaper, and you might want to give the 15 day trial license a shot to make sure it will work for you.

    2) Installation requires a freshly installed system. You can find instructions here: http://www.cpanel.net/support/docs/11/whm/install_overview.html but installation can be as simple as...

    Code:
    cd /usr/home
    fetch http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
    chmod +x latest
    ./latest

    Thank you very much for your fast answers. I am gonna do as you have instructed and possibly buy the lisense for one year tomorrow.

    Thanx again :)
