    Hello,

    I have a very strange problem,

    I just got a new server and installed cloudlinux.
    After that the second step was to install cpanel via wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest
    after the installation I changed the root password and logged in for first time to WHM,
    I got the classic "Initial Setup Step 1 out of 6" screen and I did follow the steps.

    I completed the steps and logged out.
    when I did relogin I saw the same screen "Initial Setup Step 1 out of 6"
    I did follow the steps again and it seems that it was completed in the first time because I got some errors/notifications for example "hostname_a_record: Sorry a DNS Entry for ********* already exists.
    I thought ok ...lets do it again just in case, so i finished the 6 steps, then presses on some menu choices like server health etc, everything was working fine so I did log/out login/ and again I see the same
    "Initial Setup Step 1 out of 6"

    what could be causing this?

    It seems that the trial license of cpanel was the problem,
    today I bought a regular license in order to open a ticket to the support of cPanel, and right after that the problem disappeared!
