What is cPanel:

When you are looking for a Offshore VPS Server or DMCA IGNORE Dedicated Server, one of the most important factors to consider is the hosting panel. The hosting panel is the interface you will use to manage your website. The most popular hosting panel is cPanel.

cPanel is the most popular hosting panel because it is easy to use and very powerful. With cPanel, you can manage your website’s database, domains, email accounts, and files. cPanel also includes a file manager so you can easily upload and download files to your website.

Follow this quick tutorial to begin using cPanel & WHM.

cPanel and WHM requirements:

You first want to double-check your system’s prerequisites before beginning cPanel and WHM. You must have the following.

1- Hardware requirements:

  •   •  A compatible 64-bit operating system version of CentOS, CloudLinux, or RHEL.
  •  
  •   •  1 GB RAM is required at a minimum. 2 GB RAM is preferred.
  •  
  •   •  The minimum of 20 GB storage, 40 GB recommended.

2- Networking requirement:

  •   •  Your hostname must be a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), such as server.webcare360.net, which does not match any of your servers’ domain names. In such an instance, one of your servers valid IPv4 or IPv6 addresses would be FQDN resolution.
  •  
  •   •  A static IP address configured to a network interface.
  •  
  • The network manager service should be disabled on the server.
  •   •  cPanel is not compatible with SELinux, so before going forward, disable the SELinux. Reboot the server once it’s done.

Installation:

  1.  Login to server as root.

  2.  We suggest updating the server packages using this command to update them.

yum update

  3.  cPanel is written in Perl; let’s first run it on the web hosting server using the following command (if it’s not already installed);

yum install perl curl

  4.  Run the following command to pull up the WHM in cPanel.

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

  5.  When you complete the installation process (Which might take around 10-12 minutes), you’ll get a confirmation screen like the illustration below.

Congratulations! Your installation of cPanel & WHM 11.80 is now complete. The next step is to configure your server.
Before you configure your server, ensure that your firewall allows access on port 2087.
After ensuring that your firewall allows access on port 2087, you can configure your server.
1. Open your preferred browser
2. Navigate to the following url using the address bar and enter this one-time autologin url:
