    How To Install cPanel and Fantastico on Linux CentOS 5


    cPanel is software that provide an interface to help website owners manage their sites (FTP, Email accounts, statistics), while WebHost Manager (WHM) automates server management tasks for server administrators. cPanel makes it very easy for the hosting company to give the client total control of their website without the requirement of providing full server access. cPanel has lots of advantages and disadvantages but we won’t go through them as it is not of this article’s focus.

    This article mostly interests webmasters, system administrators and any individuals who own a Virtual Private Server and wish to install cPanel and Fantastico on it.

    The first thing to consider is yum as we will need it installed. If it is not installed on VPS then do the following:

    cat /etc/redhat-release

    rpm -q yum centos-yumconf

    The next step is to download all necessary utilities/software using the RPM Package Manager:

    rpm –import http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
    rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...2.6-5.i386.rpm
    rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...el5.1.i386.rpm
    rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...0-2.noarch.rpm
    rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...3.6-2.i386.rpm
    rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...1.2.1.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...7.el5.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...2.1.2.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...2.1.2.i386.rpm
    rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.0/...s.2.noarch.rpm


    We are now ready to proceed to the cPanel Installation:

    mkdir /home/cpins
    cd /home/cpins
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
    sh latest

    and now to the Fantastico installation:

    cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot
    rm -Rf fantastico*
    wget -N http://netenberg.com/files/free/fantasticoinstaller.tgz
    tar xzpf fantasticoinstaller.tgz
    rm -f fantasticoinstaller.tgz


    In /etc/xinetd.d/pop3ds : Change ‘disable = no’ to ‘disable = yes’

    Finally:

    restart xinetd
    restart cpanel
