    Is it possible to install X Windows on a CentOS 6.8 server with cPanel already installed? Will it create any issue if we try to install X Windows?

    If you install cpanel on a server with GUI, it won't install. So if you install desktop after cpanel install, there is a chance something may break and you won't get support from cpanel.

    Hello,

    Installing graphical environments on top of a cPanel installation is generally discouraged. There's no support for those applications, and it can often take up valuable resources.

    Thank you.
