Installation Guide

To install cPanel & WHM on your server, run the following command:

This command changes your session to the home directory, downloads the latest version of cPanel & WHM, and runs the installation script.


  • cPanel, Inc. designs software for commercial hosting. Therefore, we only license publicly visible, static IP addresses. We do not license dynamic, reserved, sticky, or internal IP addresses.
  • We do not provide an uninstaller. If you wish to remove our software, you must reformat the server.
  • Only install cPanel & WHM on a freshly-installed operating system.
  • We recommend that you use the cPanel & WHM installer, which installs all of the services that it requires. If you install services before you install cPanel & WHM, you will encounter compatibility issues.
  • New installations of cPanel & WHM default to the fast installation mode. To disable the fast installation mode, use the steps in our Customize Your Installation documentation.
