    Go on, have a guess
    Reading the FC6 bugzilla entry:

    It appears FC6 is support in cPanel v11, which means using the CURRENT version of cPanel. There's not much point in using FC5 since OS support for that dies in a few weeks. You might want to consider using CentOSv4 or similar for a more stable environment.

    Installing CPanel on Fedora core 6 (today)

    We have waited untill release of Cpanel 11 which supports FC 6.

    So today we have purchased a license, but when running:

    sh cpanel-universal-install.sea

    We got a messed up not working server.

    To our suprise it didn't install Cpanel 11 but 10.x.

    After running:

    we got:

    Updating /scripts ...
    Sync Source:

    PHP version file has been updated to 4.4.6

    We rather like to use 5.2.* (is this possible?)

    This is the pure-ftpd 1.0.21 installer release number 2.tls for platform fedora 6
    pure-ftpd is up to date. Use ftpup --force to force a reinstall


    This is the exim 4.63 installer release number 1 for platform fedora 6
    exim is up to date. Use eximup --force to force a reinstall

    Weird, line before states that Install has completed.

    Sorry, we have to rerun the configuration dialog for due to
    the following indispensable but missing parameters:


    Normally keeps config variables in memory and changes need to
    be saved in a separate 'o conf commit' command to make them permanent
    between sessions. If you set the 'auto_commit' option to true, changes
    to a config variable are always automatically committed to disk.

    Always commit changes to config variables to disk? [no]

    Please remember to call 'o conf commit' to make the config permanent!

    So my question is simple, is it possible to use Cpanel 11 with Mysql 5.x, PHP 5.2.x and Apache 2.x on a Fedora Core 6 (and within some months Core 7).

    If it is possible, how?

    Your information shows that you are running the latest RELEASE. Release is still on cPanel 10. It is scheduled to be upgraded to 11 today, but it could change to a different date.

    Here is the latest from cPanel:

    You might want to watch "" and see when Cpanel 11 is available, or if 11 is needed go to edge or current instead of release. Personally, I prefer the Release line...

    You can install Cpanel on FC6 and I have gotten it to work on a few
    test servers already but it is not yet officially supported by Cpanel
    and still a little bit premature to be running FC6 if you are planning
    on using Cpanel with Fedora on the server.

    If you are planning on using Fedora on a Cpanel server, I would
    strongly recommend using FC5 instead of the newer FC6 as FC5 is
    directly supported and had had more time to resolve out issues.

    As for Cpanel compatibility ...

    For 32 bit, I'd recommend Fedora Core 5 for those servers

    For 64 bit, I've had the most success with CentOS 64bit v4.x
