Before starting the installation you have to check these points:-
- Check the Cpanel compatibility with the CentOS version.
- Check validation of license with your server.
Now, access your server remotely with the SSH client.
We recommended putty for this. As it is open source SSH software.
You can download putty free from here. Click Here
- It can take about 20-40 Min. for Cpanel installation, depending upon your server hardware configuration and network speed.
- We cannot uninstalled the Cpanel once it installed. It can be reinstalled only after fresh installation of operating system on server.
Cpanel installation requires the hostname. If you not set the hostname yet don’t worry just run the command
It will returns the hostname as the output. If not output is there. just set the temporary hostname. you can change the hostname later in the WHM.
Change directory path to home
Now. Open Your Browser.
In the address bar type https://youripaddress:2087
For example:- https://188.8.131.52:2087
Login to WHM with your server root username and password. which is same as you used for login into SSH client.
