Check how to install cPanel on Google Cloud Platform.

Create an EC2 Instance

Launch a new EC2 Instance with CentOS 7 Amazon Machine Image.

Choose at-least t2 micro instance type.

Add 40 GB of Storage to your root volume.

Configure Security Group by adding rules for these custom ports.

  • SSH with source anywhere (You can also restrict it)
  • HTTP with source anywhere
  • HTTPS with source anywhere
  • DNS (UDP) with source anywhere
  • DNS (TCP) with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2077 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2078 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2082 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2083 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2086 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2087 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP2096 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 3306 with source anywhere
  • Custom TCP 2525 with source anywhere

Create an instance by creating a new pem key to access your instance using SSH. Keep this key safe, without this key you cannot access the instance.

Setup Route 53

Create a new DNS Hosted zone for your domain name and update the nameservers of Amazon on your domain name.

In your DNS manager create a new A record with the name cpanel which points to the Public IP Address of the instance.

You can check your DNS records here by entering cpanel.yourdomain.com

Once everything is in place you can go ahead and install cPanel.

Install cPanel

Access your EC2 Instance with the PEM file you just downloaded.

Once you are connected to your instance enter the following commands one by one.

sudo -s
yum update
yum install perl
yum install wget

Then set the hostname with your domain name. Replace yourdomainname.com with your domain name.

hostname cpanel.yourdomainname.com

Download the latest cPanel and install it by running the following command.

cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest

It will take around 30 – 40 min to complete the install. Don’t close the terminal until the setup is completed.

Once the setup is completed, you can set the root password by executing the following command.

passwd

Save your password safely, you will need that to login to your WHM.

Set up Hostname in AWS

AWS Instance won’t preserve the hostname (cpanel.yourdomainname.com) you set and changes it to default hostname automatically, so this may result in a locked cPanel & WHM license. To preserve the hostname follow the below simple steps .

cd /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/
sudo nano set-hostname.sh

Paste the following contents and hit Ctrl+X followed by Y to save the file. Remember to replace yourdomainname.com with your domain name

#!/bin/sh
hostname cpanel.yourdomainname.com
/scripts/fixetchosts

Set correct permissions to the file you created

chmod 744 set-hostname.sh

That’s all now your cPanel is installed and ready to finish the WHM setup

Setup WHM

Open your browser and navigate to https://cpanel.yourdomainname.com:2087 . At this point, some browsers show a warning message about HTTPS and don’t allow you to visit the WHM page. In this case, you can use your IP Address instead of the domain name (https://PUBLIC_IP_ADDRESS:2087). It will take some time for the SSL certificate to get issued by cPanel.

Install cPanel on AWS EC2 Instance

Enter username as root

Enter the password you created by running the command passwd

Now you will be logged into your WHM.

Click Agree to All.

Provide your email address.

Install WHM on AWS EC2 Instance

Click Finish

Now you will be taken to the WHM home page.

Install cPanel & WHM on AWS EC2 Instance

Setup Email in WHM

In AWS port 25, which cPanel & WHM utilizes for email is not open. So you need to create an account with Mailgun or Sendgrid and integrate with WHM for emails or Configure Amazon SES.

Allow SMTP on Port 2525

Go to Service Configuration >> Service Manager

Tick both boxes next to Exim Mail Server (on another port)

Change Allow Exim to listen on a port other than 25 to 2525

Click Save

Email Configuration

As the standard email port is blocked in Google Cloud, you need to configure a third-party email service provider to send emails. Here we can use Mailgun to configure emails in cPanel.

Make sure you have these DNS records.

A record pointing to mail.domain.com

MX record with 0 priority pointing to mail.domain.com

Mailgun Configuration

Go to Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager.

Click the Advanced Editor tab.

In daemon_smtp_ports enter 465 : 25 : 587 : 2525

In the Section: AUTH box enter.

mailgun_login:
driver = plaintext
public_name = LOGIN
hide client_send = : Default SMTP Login : Default Password

In the Section: PREROUTERS box enter.

mailgun:
driver = manualroute
domains = ! +local_domains
transport = mailgun_transport
route_list = * smtp.mailgun.org::2525 byname

In the Section: TRANSPORTSTART box enter.

mailgun_transport:
driver=smtp
hosts_try_auth = smtp.mailgun.org

Activate cPanel

cPanel is a subscription-based software, you can activate your license.

Save the configurations, that’s everything about cPanel & WHM on AWS.

    Appreciate this post. Will try it out.

  12. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire
    out a developer to create your theme? Great work!

  13. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

  15. Cami Halılarının Camiyi Tamamlayıcı Olması Gerekir

    Cami halıları kurumsal bir firmadan alınmadan önce
    mutlaka caminin deseni ve renkleri incelenmeli, bu
    şekilde bir karara vararak en doğru tercih yapılmalıdır.
    Örneğin camideki avizenin ve duvarların işçiliği,
    celi sülüs ile yazılan dualar ve ayetlerin renkleri düşünüldüğünde en uyumlu
    halıyı seçmek daha doğru olur. Bu şekilde bir uyum caminin hem
    daha içten ibadet edilecek huzur dolu bir yer olmasını, hemde gelen turistler tarafından göz alıcı ve değer verilen bir yer olduğunu göstermek için önemlidir.
    Zira ibadethanelere verilen özen dine verilen değeri gösterecek
    ve insanlar da bu şekilde izlenim bırakacaktır.

  16. Hi there The Now i’m Glad to get here Happy New Year
