Q. How to install cPanel & WHM?

A. Installing cPanel & WHM

Note: You must have Perl installed on your server before you can run 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:

Opens the /home directory
# cd /home

Fetches the latest installation files from cPanel's servers.
# wget -N

Opens and executes the installation files.
# sh latest

If licensing fails (due to a strict firewall or modified IP), run the command /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt to activate your cPanel & WHM license.
