Now that you have logged into the server using SSH as per ‘Step One: Access your new Economy VPS using SSH‘, you’re now ready to install cPanel/WHM. Please follow these steps to install cPanel:
- Login to your server with SSH.
- Install CentOS base and Perl by entering the following commands:
yum groupinstall base
yum install perl
- You will then fetch the cPanel install and run it by entering the following commands:
wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest
- Once it has completed, and the installation process will take perhaps 45 minutes to complete, please reboot your VPS. You can reboot by running the command:
Once cPanel has been installed you may login at https://yourVPSipaddress:2087 – your username will be root and the password you can retrieve from your activation email.
Please note: We recommend that you never login with http://yourVPSipaddress:2086 or /whm as this is insecure.
Now that cPanel/WHM is installed, you may move onto step three of our getting started series which is ‘Securing and configuring your Economy VPS‘.
