    Hi,

    I cannot successfully build either CentOS 32bit/64bit Cpanel VMs since yesterday.

    PHP/Apache is not being installed etc.

    Anyone else having similar issues? Is there a fix for this?

    Regards,
    Suhail.

    Here's an example of the errors:

    Do you have root (Administrator) access to the hardware node of the VM?

    Which virtual environment is being used?

    If direct root access to the hardware node is not available I recommend escalating the issue to the systems administration team that has control over the VE configuration.

    Please try the following command to install the specified Perl module that is mentioned in the error detail:
    Code:
    # /scripts/perlinstaller Acme::Spork
    If needed, the process could be forced:
    Code:
    # /scripts/perlinstaller --force Acme::Spork

    Hi Don,

    Yes I do have root access to these boxes.

    FYI, I successfully installed CentOS on a Xen VM, but it's failing on OpenVZ VMs(tried on two nodes). Nodes have not been changed in anyway although SolusVM was updated yesterday. SolusLabs have said that the CPanel installer has changed which is causing these problems.

    CPanel DNS installs are fine as I built one successfully yesterday and a few the day before. So it's problems with CPanel installs on OpenVZ.

    Regards,
    Suhail.

    Immediately after the failure on Virtuozzo/OpenVZ please check the output of the following command (executed from within the VPS container):
    Code:
    # cat /proc/user_beancounters

    I just installed cPanel VPS on a CentOS x64 Virtual Machine (XenServer). I'm having the same issue, Apache and PHP are not installed. Any ideas? I tried the perlinstaller but still having the same issue. I can't run easyapache or anything.

    Thanks

    I reformatted, installed CentOS again, and installed cPanel... Nothing different, but for some reason everything installed this time.

    Perhaps CPanel have fixed the installer. I'll give it a go on a Xen box and OpenVZ box in a bit and update this thread.

    Please submit a support request so that we may examine the system directly; direct access is necessary so that we may thoroughly inspect the affected server and investigate the specific circumstances involved. When available, please send me your ticket ID number (e.g., via a PM) so I may follow-up internally.

    I ran into similar issue, where "Transfer truncated" present.
    Any word on a fix?

    I'm running CentOS 5.x x54 on VMware (ESX 4) Virtual Machine.

    Thanks,

    Tommy

    The information I have available indicates it might be an issue with a specific CPAN mirror being used when installing a Perl module.

    1.) What is the output line directly above the message "Transfer truncated"? The line involved may begin with "Fetching with LWP:" followed by a CPAN mirror URL for the Perl module being requested. As seen by the CLI output provided by suhail I see the following mirror was used when experiencing the difficulty, and I am curious to know if the CPAN mirror URL is any different or if it is the same:
    Code:
    http://mirror.uta.edu/CPAN/
    2.) Please let us know the output from the following command (via root SSH access):
    Code:
    # cat /home/.cpcpan/goodurls

    Hi,

    Yes the problem is with the specific mirror "mirror.uta.edu".

    Here are the steps provided by Cpanel support to take whilst this bug is fixed:

    1. Edit /home/.cpcpan/goodurls
    - remove the line containing mirror.uta.edu
    2. set the file immutable
    chattr +i /home/.cpcpan/goodurls
    3. mv /home/.cpan /home/.cpan_bak
    4. /scripts/checkperlmodules --force
    5. Run /scripts/easyapache

    After this you should successfully see PHP and Apache running:

    # php -v
    # httpd -v

    Regards,
    Suhail.

    p.s. I must say that I was very impressed with Cpanel support, especially considering it was complimentary support. Brilliant!

    Don,

    It is the mirror.uta.edu mirror. I will try the fix provided by suhail and report result.

    Thanks,
