    I'm losing my hair at gallactic speeds for the past 20 days.
    Our company purchased 2 cpanel licenses to move from enXim to cpanel, and we've setup a transitional server running FreeBSD 4.9.

    The story begins...

    Followed the freebsd setup advices and instructions in the documentation and the forums threads, never got able to setup cpanel for 100% reliability... even the stable, not talking about release and edge versions...

    Yesterday cpanel has released a new version of the installer instead of the old 'cpanel-freebsd4.9-install.tar.gz' and likes... Well, I'm re-installing the freebsd box from the scratch for the past 4 days now, as all latest updates broke the freebsd version of cpanel...

    My today's attempt:

    1. install freebsd 4.9 from the scratch, using the following machine and setttings:

    Pentium4 2.4Ghz, 512Mb RAM, 80Gb ATA100 HD.
    This machine was running openbsd for the past months flawlesly so no hardware problems.

    the hard disk partitions were as follows:

    200Mb /
    2Gb swap
    10Gb /var
    5Gb /tmp
    60Gb /usr

    FreeBSD 4.9 installed ok, and passed all my checks. NO PROBLEMS SO FAR.

    2. Downloaded cpanel-universal-install.sea from the
    layer1.cpanel.net to /usr/home

    3. started the install by ./cpanel-universal-install.sea

    ...[snip]...lots' of errors...[snip].... frontpage installation failed.....[snip]... mysql 3.23.58 being installed.. (?? was installing mysql 4.0.17 the day before with the old installer)..... another bunch of cpan libraries not being installed..... [snip][snip] "INSTALLATION COMPLETE"....

    NADA.

    as a result, mysql-server is not installed, fp not installed, /scripts/sysup and /scripts/upcp don't fix this.

    I'm probably top 1 person submiting trouble tickets with detailed copy-pastes of the errors, but max what i get is a shell access requests, then a fast login into the box and replies that they've sent this to a higher-level technician for a review... doh...

    I know that there are several successful freebsd cpanel users here, anyone can help me out to get this up and running?

    PLEASE HELP :eek:

    make sure a few things:

    >>/stand/sysinstall

    choose "Configure"
    choose "Distributions"
    hit the space bar on "src"
    this will take you to the src screen then hit the space bar on "all"
    hit the space bar on "exit"
    hit the space bar on "ports"
    Press the tab key until you highlight "Ok" and hit Enter.
    Exit out of the SysInstall

    cd /usr/ports/ftp/wget && make install clean
    cd /usr/ports/net/rsync && make install clean
    cd /usr/ports/www/frontpage && make install clean

    now download the lastest build for FreeBSD, I believe it's release 23


    enjoy your installation.

    Re: Re: FreeBSD 4.9 and Cpanel PROBLEMS

    How do I download the latest build for FreeBSD?

    http://layer1.cpanel.net/ is not listing them anymore...
    only the cpanel-universal-install.sea, which is broken for freebsd....

    The installer on layer1 has now been updated to include the V2 bsd installer.

    No error messages with the new updated installer until this one popped out:

    Code:
                                                                                 [snip]
      
    cPanel Layer 2 Auto-Update Commencing

    ==> Running post install scripts....rsync

    This one isn't new, I've reported this a month ago, never got reply... Might be one of the causes of wired memory leak on freebsd 4.9:confused:

    Installed using it, filled several trouble tickets waiting for replies... it doesn't copy /etc/rc.d/init.d/ipaliases, and changes are not being saved in WHM...
    :mad: :eek:
