Hi,

Does anybody know somewhere where I can get CentOS 5/6 OpenVZ OS templates with cPanel pre-installed?

Thanks

    I could do, but I was thinking it would be easier for it to be pre-done.

    @dominicl,

    I would recommend making templates on your own, that way you know how they are built and how most common people will utilize them to help support your clients later down the road.

    Is the best way just to create one through SolusVM, of a VPS with cPanel installed on it?

    yes, but then you have to remove some files so clients can just go through the initialization wizard when they go to the cpanel url.

    Yes. I'd just install cPanel and CSF but not go through the install wizard. Would that work?

    it will still have the details of the previous vps you will make the template from. For example, hostname, some ip's, etc.

    More files to remove :)

    I cant seem to find the exact files, but this is from the top of my head ...

    remove any non local lines from /etc/hosts

    put a default hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network

    ... its a state of trial and error - do it over and over again till it works fine for you :)

    Yes and no. There are many files unique to the install, so you need to know what to change when you deploy the template. Also, cPanel changes so often you need to update the template once deployed as well.

    I do use a self made template, saves me a lot of time, and users can install themselves and I know they will not be asking many question since it does just work, but I do go in behind them and change the files that tie the template to the IP

    What You Need Is To Just Install cPanel Over A Fresh With OS of your Choice and Create It As Template.

    cPanel isn't exactly hard to install anyway. Reload OS template, 5 minute OS prep, download and run installer. 40-120mins later, done.

  • Wud have been better if cPanel makes these templates as they make vps optimized cPanel. It will save lots of time and they will do it better.

  • It is not extremely hard to build a template yourself that will install cPanel automatically.

    +1 It's easy on OpenVZ.

  • Better to just make two templates one that executes the cPanel install, and a second that does a cPanel DNSOnly install on boot. Probably can even finagle it to email your customer when it's done.
