    I understand this but what are the prerequisites in order to install this cpanel ? I mean to say that what next steps I need to do after just installing a fresh server centos 7? What are the hidden steps between fresh server minimal installation and cPanel installation?

    I want to know full step by step sequences of installing process prior to cPanel Installation

    • Ravi Saive says:


      These are the requirements for installing Cpanel:

      • A fresh minimal install CentOS or RHEL
      • A registered fully-qualified hostname
      • A properly-configured Ethernet device with a static IP address
      • You must disable OS firewalls and Network managers before you run the cPanel installation.

    Anyone else get “Errno 256 – No more mirrors to try” after setting the FQDN? I noticed yum worked until I set the FQDN. So far no luck in resolving it. If someone could help that would be awesome, likewise if I get it, I will post it in case anyone else has the same problem. :-D

    I did all the work. I use vagrant. I don’t access https://ip adress:2087. I don’t insert virtualhost code in httpd.conf. Can you help me?

    • Aaron Kili says:


      As you can see from the article, there is no step for inserting any virtualhost config in httpd.conf file, everything is setup by the cpanel installer. You can consult the vagrant documentation for any help.
