    Hi,

    I just loaded a new machine with redhat 7.2 and am in the process of trying to install CPanel on it. I've installed CPanel countless times before and it's always been painless.

    This time it seems to be freezing at the Upgrading Perl part. The little line is still turning, but it's been sitting on thst one part now since yesterday (18 hours now). I've never seen it take this long. The machine is a 1.3ghz PIII with 512MB RAM.

    This is the second time I've tried to install it on this machine. The first time I let it go for 5 hours and then gave up and started over. When I check out the processes, I can see the install and MakeFile processes but they're sleeping.

    Any ideas? Is there a way I can install perl manually and skip that part of the install process?

    Any help is apreciated. :)

    Aaron

    I also had this problem, so time ago - suppose it was on 7.2 as we are using 7.3 now. Its a pain but I just killed the install and started off fresh. I think there is a install log somewhere and I think the Perl installer is hanging on some modul. I somtimes ran the installer 2-3 timer before it finished.


    You can remove the installdirectory and run the sea once more.

    What's the easiest way to do this??

    I did a "rm -R folderName" but it asks me for every file in every directory under the install file.

    My fingures are breaking off hitting yes about 1000 times.

    Is there a way to just have the install folder and everything under it deleted in one shot??

    I'm on red hat 8.0

    Thanks, Charles

    It stoped at the perl part:

    It says perl is installed o.k.

    And then it's blank......

    This is the second attemp and both died right after the perl part.

    I don't mind trying the install again but I don't want to delete 1000 files in the install directory.

    Is there a way to start the install where the installation left off.

    Or just as good a way to delete the whole install folder so I can try it again?????

    Thanks
