CPanel is an invasive commercial product that replaces core components of CentOS.
We cannot support it here.
You will need to use your cPanel support channel.

Hi,

I don't know cPanel, but You should have 3 servers.

1. LVS as load balance between 2 servers, and add HAProxy to better performance.
2. 2 server to HA config.

Good luck!

If you are setting this up on CentOS 5 now then be aware that it goes EOL in just over 1 year from now. This means no more security patches for critical security bugs. You would do better to look at deploying a version with more life left: 6 is supported until 2020, 7 until 2024.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
