To install cPanel & WHM on your server, run the following command:

cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest

This command changes your session to the home directory, downloads the latest version of cPanel & WHM, and runs the installation script.

Note:

We recommend that you run the installation command within a Linux screen session.

 Click for more information about screen...

The Linux screen command allows you to create a shell session that will stay active through a network disruption.

  1. To determine whether your operating system contains screen and it exists in your path, run the which screen command.
    • The system will return /usr/bin/screen if screen exists on your system and whether it exists in your path.
    • If your system does not contain screen, you can install it with the yum install screen command.
  2. To run a screen session, enter the screen command. Then, run the installation command.
    • If your session disconnects for some reason, log back in to your server and run the screen -r command. This will reconnect you to your screen session.

 



Important:

  • cPanel, Inc. designs software for commercial hosting. Therefore, we only license publicly visible, static IP addresses. We do not license dynamic, reserved, sticky, or internal IP addresses.
  • We do not provide an uninstaller. If you wish to remove our software, you must reformat the server.
  • Only install cPanel & WHM on a freshly-installed operating system.
  • You must log in to the server as the root user in order to install cPanel & WHM. If you do not possess root-level access, contact your system administrator or hosting provider for assistance.
  • We recommend that you use the cPanel & WHM installer, which installs all of the services that it requires. If you install services before you install cPanel & WHM, you will encounter compatibility issues.
  • New installations of cPanel & WHM default to the fast installation mode. To disable the fast installation mode, use the steps in our Customize Your Installation documentation.
