Re-install cPanel and WHM?

#1
So, say I'm a blazing idiot who is a complete VPS newbie... and say for some reason all my VPS backups don't seem to allow me to restart httpd or gain root access via SSH.

So being the brilliant person that I am, I decide it would be best to Reinstall my VPS (since I really don't care about the data that was there in the first place). Although apache seems to be working and I can connect via SSH; I now have no idea how to get cPanel or WHM back.

Any suggestions?

I've done this nuuuumerrous times, try this, all this next stuff is in command format, so run the commands individually as posted.

first login to shell as root then:

mkdir /home/cpinst
cd /home/cpinst
wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/cpanel-universal-install.sea
sh cpanel-universal-install.sea

Then just wait for the installer, it takes a while probably around an hour. This is the exact procedure the techs use when installing cPanel on VPSes, so use it :p

After that, just go to WHM at
Code:
http://1.2.3.4:2086
and go through the initial setup, there ya go.

Actually, on a VPS, it's a bit more involved than that since you need to install certain dependencies that are not provided for in the CentOS4 template.
