Setup new cPanel/WHM Server
First of all setup below recommended partitions while installing the CentOS/RedHAT operating system.
|/usr||32GB||used by cPanel, Apache, PHP and other applications|
|/var||64GB||MySQL, cPanel config and log files|
|swap||twice the size of RAM||4GB max is ok for system with very high RAM configuration|
Now start the cPanel installation
mkdir /home/cpins cd /home/cpins wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest sh latest
It will take around 30 minutes or more depending on the server configuration and network speed
After cPanel installation is finished login to WHM and start the basic setup
Here it will ask for nameservers, hostname, quota config, ftp and nameserver setup etc.
After all that is done. it will take you to WHM and you can create new cPanel account there.
NOTE: Above mentioned steps are just the basic installation steps. There are lots of more configuration that can be done to optimize and secure the server. If you want experienced cPanel System Administrator to setup the server for you then you can take a look at our cPanel Server Management plan http://www.servertechsupport.com/cpanel-server-management
