CPanel in a FreeBSD jail?


I've been messing around with the FreeBSD kernel in order to make jail more VPS-like. At this point I added support for multiple IP addresses and mountpoint partitioning (the mountpoints pointing to the jail are the only ones that show up in it).

Has anyone ever tried to run CPanel or some other contrtol panel in a jail() environment? (jail is a feature in FreeBSD that makes the programs running in it think they're running on a seperate system)

Perhaps it's possible for FreeBSD 5.0 version because of added features to the jail.

I doubt it would be possible in 4.7 unless you do heavy modifications to both cpanel and the kernel.

I don't have a chance to install 5.0 and try doing it myself.

Hope you'll find someone else who would be willing to give it a try or good luck if you are willing to do it yourself. Please report your results in the near future if you are successful as I am curious.

I got a temporary license and decided to test things out. The layer1 install failed the first few times because make world didn't install perl, ports and wget. Eventually, layer1 installed, but I had to replace snarf in the installer file with wget, since snarf would not decompress. Other than that, WHM and CPanel seem to run fine.
