    Hi,

    I just run cpanel installer few hours ago, until I saw the connection (or something) interrupted & the SSH window (putty) had to be closed, however I'm sure that it was not the installation itself which had problem.
    What I need to ask:
    - Is it actually the installer still running? because when I tried to re-run the installer, it said that the installer file is locked & still running.
    - Would there be problem if I can't interact with the installation?
    - How will I know if the installation has been finished? is there any command which I can run to get this information?

    Thank you, appreciate any helps from this community.

    Hello :)

    It's possible the cPanel installer was still running. Checking the running processes using a command such as "ps auxf" would let you know if it's still active. In addition, the cPanel installation log can be found at:

    /var/log/cpanel-install.log

    In the future, you may want to consider initiating the cPanel installation using the "screen" utility.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your answer.

    I checked /var/cpanel/cpanel-install.log, this file is not even exist.
    Can I just stop the installation & start over? What service/process should I "kill"?

    Just happened to me as well (I got disconnected from the server) and the answer was, as Michael stated:
    # tail -f /var/log/cpanel-install.log -n -100

    As long as it keeps showing stuff happening, you should be OK.
    I know is an old post, but 5 years later it helped me :O
