Installation Guide – Cpanel Installation

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


cd /home && curl -o latest -L && sh latest

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


We recommend that you run the installation command within a Linux screen session. The Linux Screen utility allows you to create a shell session that will stay active through a network disruption.

The installation instructions for the Screen utility vary based on your server’s operating system and its package management tools.

  1. To determine whether your operating system contains the Screen utility and it exists in your path, run the following command:
    • If your system uses yum, run the which screen command. You can install Screen with the yum install screen command.
    • If your system uses apt, run the screen --version command. You can install Screen with the apt install screen command.
    • To run a Screen session, enter the screen command. Then, run the Screen installation command for your system.
  2. 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.
  • cPanel, L.L.C. designs software for commercial hosting. Therefore, we only license publicly visiblestatic 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.
