How to set up a VPS or Server with cPanel and CSF

You will need a program like putty to access the command line for your VPS or Server. Once you have logged in with the root login you just need to run a couple commands.

1. Simply run this to install Cpanel (Takes about an hour or two and does not require a prompt at any point):

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

3. Then install CSF (takes 2 minutes and does not require a prompt):

wget http://www.configserver.com/free/csf.tgz 
tar -xzf csf.tgz
cd csf
sh install.sh

After you have installed everything log into the WHM https://your-server-ip:2087/ and start configuring CPanel and CSF. (replace your-server-ip with your server's actual IP)

That's it, from there just start poking around cPanel to get the hang of things.

Of course, if you ever just want us to install these for you simply put in a ticket and we'll take care of everything.
