    I've been attempting to install CPanel on a fresh Fedora Core 2 system for some time now. My last install was a basic Server install, with very few services, and XWindows and Gnome. Now, after running the CPanel installer my XWindows desktop fails to open, and I cannot get sever services to activate with CPanel. I've tried redoing the installation process 3 times, but each time I get the same result. If anyone could help, that would be great. I can provide system specs and such if necessary.

    Do a OS Restore and redo it, is the server licence?

    a cpanel install will disable x windows

    you will need to use either text commands through a shell or use the whm to configure your server

    I'm not horribly comfortable with Linux, so X makes it much easier to do things on the server. I've also been having trouble connecting to the WHM/Cpanels from an external box. Its rather difficult to configure when you can't connect. However, it can connect when I'm on the machine in X, so it's workable that way.

    X-Win is a burden to a hosting server, comsuming so much RAM, CPU.

    my advice would be learn how to work in shell. otherwise, you should be using a Windows system instead.

    If CPanel supported Windows, I probably would. I'm pretty tied to CPanel, because of the comfort of my hostees with it.

    Go on, have a guess
    I'm not sure what your question is related to this thread? The OS distributions that you can use are on the cPanel's site (and some are indeed licensed, notably RHE) and you do, of course, need a license to run cPanel. Not sure what this has to do with running X apps, though.
