i'm configuring a new server, i want to install cpanel11. when do you think to release it?
Your problem here is choosing Centos 5 as your operating system.
Centos 5 is not yet supported by Cpanel
CentOS 5 is officially supported for cPanel 11.
Actually, Centos 5 is supported from cpanel 11 onwards. They just haven't updated the website yet. I installed cpanel11 on a centos 5 box this morning. I haven't had a chance to test it out yet, but it did install correctly.
To do the install, run a normal centos install, untick all the options (server, workstation etc).
Then choose to customise the install. Untick any further packages.
continue to install centos as normal. Run the commands :
yum remove cups sendmail
yum install gcc gcc-devel
echo "CPANEL=current" >> /etc/cpupdate.conf
then wait for it to finish. this thread http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=65819&highlight=centos5 also has some useful hints.
Note that when you run the yum update, you will need to import the rpm signing key, which is automated, you just have to confirm.
*edit* OK, things didn't quite work when I got round to checking the install. I had the following issues :
Had to manually create the cpanel group and user with uid 501
/etc/chkserv.d/ directory was missing, causing problems with the installation of some services
After the first failure, I had to install these perl modules from WHM :
Then use SSH for :
yum install redhat-rpm-config
After that, running
completed the install, but apache failed to start so I had to rebuild apache with it's default options using easyapache.
In the WHM's sidebar locate the "Install cPAddon Scripts" link. On the resulting page, tick the checkbox for "Force Refresh of All cPAddon Sources" and click the update button.
Hopefully, that's the last issue sorted.
