    I just did a fresh cPanel/WHM install on this server.

    I get an error when I click on Main >> Security Center >> Traceroute Enable/Disable

    Do I need to install the traceroute RPM myself or is this something cPanel usually takes control of?

    Thanks for your help,
    James

    Traceroute is generally part of the OS installation.

    tracreroute package is generally installed during the OS installation, however, if it is not installed, search and install it using yum

    it will list various packages. Suppose your server is a 32 bit machine, it will display the package something like "traceroute.i386".

    Then install it using yum

    Once done, the option Main >> Security Center >> Traceroute Enable/Disable should work as expected.

    A note: Traceroute is actually not part of a base CentOS/RedHat installation and the method described by madaboutlinux will install the missing binary.

    Here are a few other network-related utilities I usually install when deploying a cPanel server:

    Code:
    yum -y install traceroute jwhois tcpdump mtr bind-utils
    I believe bind-utils is installed by cPanel now, but I still include it out of habit. :D
