How To Install CPANEL on your VPS

Ok. Few Steps to setup your VPS-CPANEL:

1 - Login to your VZMC and get inside your server
2 - Create a new VPS with the Sample Ve Config call vps.cpanel
3 - Select the ips you want to use in that VPS and the dns servers.
4 - Select RedHat Enterprise Template (not minimal)
5 - Dont select any addon.You dont need it for cpanel.
6 - Select the Space / Memory / CPU . All the normal stuff of your normal VPS. Put Start on boot and the rest of the normal stuff. Rememeber to use unlimited VPs.
7 - Go to your Ev1 Member section, open a ticket with your IP / and root password and request ev1 to get your VPS register in up2date. CHECK IT IF IT IS WELL CONFIGURE!! JUST IN CASE.
8 - Go in ssh and do the following steps:
mkdir /home/cpins
cd /home/cpins
wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
sh latest
This should install cpanel without asking you any questions.

If you have any problems you should check: http://www.cpanel.net/install.html

9 - Login to : https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:2087 and setup your server.
If you never setup a cpanel server, you can find some usefull information here: http://www.cpanel.net/docs.htm or search ev1 forum or ask me. I will be happy to help.

Well. Hopefully for some of you was usefull and will give you something else to try/offer in your VPS server.

Btw, it needs atleast 128 MB for cpanel to work.

If you have any problems with the guide let me know.


ps: i talk to some sw-soft people and they recomend to enable second-level quota (QUOTAUGIDLIMIT), i didnt try it myself. But i will let everyone when i try it.
