    Hey guys, I just downloaded the latest build from: http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest

    I am running the latest fresh minimal install of Centos 5.2

    I ran the sh latest and it was going pretty good, but after a while its been stuck on a particular part of the install.

    Its output hundreds of ............ then a + every once in a while

    I ssh into it from another machine on the network to look at top and this is what it has as the top 4 processes

    Code:

    60-90 minutes is a good rule of thumb for installation time of cPanel/WHM. However, network connectivity and hardware performance do factor into how long it takes to install cPanel/WHM.

    If you find that the installation is taking a few hours, definitely contact your cPanel/WHM licensing provider so they can look into this issue for you.

    High time for installation

    Hello
    I am installing cPanel on a VPS (vpslink, plan-4, CentOS 5.3) and this takes a lot. In the first attempt the installation was running 9 hours and then abortion. Rebuild a new VPS and shot the installation again. Already spent 2 hours and still not finished. Someone went through a similar situation or have an idea of what to do?
    Thank you very much,
    Rovilso

    Hello, I am having the same problem to install. In a VPS (vpslink.com, CentOS 5.3, Plan-4) abort the installation of cPanel with 9 hours. Reinstall the VPS and start again the installation of cPanel, which is already more than 2 hours of execution. How long did it take to be his?

    Thank you,
    Rovilso

    You can do a
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/cpanel-install-thread0.log /var/log/cpanel-install-thread1.log 
    to watch what it is exactly doing.

    Hi,

    Taks. The error was identified.

    The problem is a looop in the installation script. The installation is
    forever here.
    See the output of the log with tail-f / var/log/cpanel-install-thread0.log:

    The VPS has a fresh install of CentOS 5.3 without any server software, correct?

    Hi,

    I submitted the problem to the support staff of cPanel. I was met by 5 different analysts and unfortunately until now no one to identify what really is happening and fix the problem.


    I am disappointed with the media attention. If anyone has any idea or passed the same problem, please help me.

    Thank you very much,
    Rovilso

    Hello my friends


    After a few hours without sleep and a lot of research to identify the problem.

    I started my tests demoting my VPS to a Centos 4. Then he upgraded to 7 and the update ran successfully the installation of cPanel. Again destroy my VPS and installed CentOS 5.3. Before installing the cPanel decided to update the system through yum update. After a while I realized the following error:

    self._read_db_obj(db_obj)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/sqlitesack.py", line 94, in _read_db_obj
    setattr(self, item, _share_data(db_obj[item]))
    TypeError: unsubscriptable object

    Researching the problem I discovered that there is a small bug in YUM in CentOS 5.3, see: http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=3573

    Then ran the command "yum clean all" to a temporary basis of limbal YUM. Then get hold of the update CentOS and ran the command again "yum clean all".

    Run the installation of cPanel and this time she completed successfully. Now I am one happy user! :D

    Rovilso
