You're sentences are quite difficult to understand...
For starters, do you have licensed cpanel?
It's not free software...

If you have there should be manual how to install it.

# mkdir /home :)
If you don't create it manually FreeBSD will make /usr/home land create symbolic link from /home to /usr/home.

I don't have cpanel available... And don't plan to obtain, so I can't tell you how to install it....
However most things in manual shouldn't be OS specific.

I think reading this might help you to understand FreeBSD basics
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/
It's available in other languages as well

FreeBSD doesn't have SElinux.... FreeBSD is not Linux. FreeBSD is BSD :)
About resizing, it very much depends on how you partioned disk, and what File system you're using....

Search the forum for "resize", there were few threads about this.

I said, make /home :)
# mkdir /home

It's probably not strictly defined, that you need to install to /home (just side comment)

P.S.
Please don't address me as "Sir", "Mr", "Don", "Your highness" etc... lol (either address me by nickname, or real name (Aldis))

Firs of all, before DutchDaemon woke up :) , read this:
http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=8816

After that, start reading handbook:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/
It will pay off.... it is very good

Network configuring:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/config-network-setup.html

If you want, you can read handbook in other languages (perhaps even your native)
Go to FreeBSD homepage, at top-right corner select language, and then go to documentation > handbook


We don't spoon feed people... many times we (forum users) refer people to handbook, manuals or other resources.
This is especially true for basic stuff, that would be clear after reading handbook.

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

/etc/reslov.conf is same as on any Linux.

It would have been probably better if you have used emulator such as VirtualBox for your experiments to test setup, and only then migrate your server to environment that you already know.

Now what's done is done, [red]you will have to read[/red]:
Start with resolv.conf(5)


I might sound rough, but you messed up. (It's for your own good)
Not understanding what you do, will make more harm in the long run.

So, what prevents you from making new file?
Editors available in default setup: ee and vi
If you're not familiar with vi, then use ee
also You can write resolv.conf with simple echo

Are you absolute Windows user?
Doesn't sound like you've been using Unix-like operating systems before.

i work just Centos / Fedora / Redhat Before and never work with bsd
BSD isn't all that different. Just a little better :)

Arash said:
work with vi is like pick up a pencil from ground
Hmm, what do you mean? You like it, or don't?
vi(1) is de facto standard on Unix system, so knowing it helps, because, if you know vi, you know one editor that is available on any Unix. :D

Like I ever sleep..

Arash, this thread is not going to continue like this; it looks like an annoying form of slow-chat that doesn't work on forums.

First: read your sign-up email, and all the links in it, and put some effort into your writing style.
Second: read the proper Handbook chapters and manuals before asking any more questions. You have the tools and the documentation, use them. This forum is not a lazy replacement for reading documentation.

If this thread resumes later with questions like 'Where is the any key', I will have to close it.
