    check your yum.conf file and update it with the fedora mirrors site.

    baseurl=http -> baseurl=ftp

    Do you have to change it back after install? Becouse I checked another server which was installed by Cpanel tech support and it has httpd in it. I am thinking they changed it to ftp and then back to ftp.

    I'm getting the same error, and my conf looks just like the one posted. I don't get what it wants me to do.

    Are you sure that changing the http to ftp will not effect the server's security in any sense? Info on this would help me a lot.
    Thank you.

    In that respect, http and ftp are equally as insecure.

    If you're using FC2, you'd need to visit www.fedoralegacy.org and update your yum.conf to reflect their update mirrors.
