You should now have access to your dedicated or VPS server. Depending on the policies of the company you obtain your server from, it may already have cPanel and WHM installed. However, even if that is the case, you should review the items that we will cover in this chapter to make sure nothing was missed. We will discuss how to install cPanel and WHM on your server, and also how to finish initial configuration in WHM.
If you are certain you have this covered already, you can move on toChapter 3, where we will discuss other settings that you should check before moving on to setting up Apache, PHP, and databases inChapter 4.
