You must have Perl installed on your server before running the installation script for cPanel & WHM. You can install Perl using either yum or up2date.
yum users should run the following command:
yum install perl
up2date users should run the following command:
up2date -i perl
To install cPanel & WHM, run these commands:
cd /home — Opens the /home directory.
wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest — Fetches the latest installation files from
sh latest — Opens and executes the installation files.
If licensing fails (due to a strict firewall or modified IP), run the command
/usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt to activate your cPanel & WHM license.
Note: During the cPanel & WHM installation process, Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.3 are installed by default. After this installation process is complete, you can customize your server's Apache and PHP configuration with WHM's EasyApache feature.
