    Hello,

    I mean that cPanel over debian is fully unsupported, but at this time is possible install over this OS.

    I installed cPanel in latest debian-5 stable (lenny) and the script "latest" it seems to finish correctly installing all packages and deps.

    But unfortunately doesn´t start any services.

    When I try a /etc/init.d/cpanel start (for example):

    Starting cPanel services: /etc/init.d/functions: line 139: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    /etc/init.d/functions: line 350: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    [FAILED]
    Starting cPanel brute force detector services: /etc/init.d/functions: line 139: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    /etc/init.d/functions: line 350: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    [FAILED]
    Starting cPanel dav services: /etc/init.d/functions: line 139: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    /etc/init.d/functions: line 350: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    [FAILED]
    Starting cPanel Log services:
    Starting pop3 services: /etc/init.d/functions: line 139: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    /etc/init.d/functions: line 350: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory

    Starting Melange Chat services:

    /etc/init.d/functions: line 350: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory

    Starting mailman services: /etc/init.d/functions: line 379: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    /etc/init.d/functions: line 350: /sbin/initlog: No such file or directory
    [FAILED]

    Anybody can help me fixing this issues?
    I know that cPanel (and their support of course) are full in CentOS or RHEL compatible OS, but a customer requires debian + cPanel and then here the troubles.

    Thanks in advance for help.

    Regards,
    Amil

    Hello,

    Unfortunately we do not support Debian, but we do support a few others. I have attached a link to the system requirements page. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you for the post :)

    Of course, I know that Debian is unsupported by cPanel and the working on this OS is difficult.

    After many rebuilds, I get cPanel installed in Debian 4.0 stable, but most services such as apache, dns, courier are not managed entirely by cPanel and happens hard issues.
