For cPanel & WHM 11.48


This document describes the series of commands that install cPanel & WHM on your server.


During the cPanel & WHM installation process, Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.4 are installed by default. After this installation process is complete, you can customize your server's Apache and PHP configuration with WHM's EasyApache feature. 

Install cPanel & WHM

To install cPanel & WHM, 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.


To install cPanel & WHM on a 5.x version of CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or CloudLinux, use the --force option when you run the installer. We strongly recommend that server administrators use the newest version of their operating system.
