Hey guys! :)

I've decided to take a switch to cPanel/WHM on my dedicated server since it seems so much stable than my previous hosting panel. anyway im trying to install it but for some reason it wont even let me get the install file to even get started? The error comes up like this in SSH:

wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
--2010-03-10 15:55:33-- http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
solving layer1.cpanel.net... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `layer1.cpanel.net'
any ideas on what might be causing it? I'm using CentOS 5.4

any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks,
Josh :)

It seems that resolver configuration is not setup properly. Make sure that you have set proper IP on /etc/resolv.conf

Definitely a resolver issue. You host should fix this for you, else you can try using some public DNS servers like OpenDNS or Google's if your local ones are having issues.
