    I'm trying to install Cpanel on my Centos 5.2 for the first time. In the instructions page it's telling me to remove Openldap so Exim won't have problems.

    However, trying to do a rpm -e openldap has led me down a rpm dependency hell. I can't seem to remove this thing. It's got 100 other dependencies, and each one of those has another 1000 dependencies. It's proving fruitless.

    What should I do here to get Cpanel installed on the system? Should I just try to install without removing openldap?

    You can try installing without removing OpenLDAP, but our instructions state rather clearly (and the installer reaffirms this) that cPanel should only be installed on a clean, empty install of your OS. Normally, in this case, the best course of action would be to reinstall your OS then install cPanel on it. Installing cPanel on a server that's already in a production environment is never something we recommend.

    Yes, kindly first reinstall your OS and then try to install CPanel on fresh OS. This time, you should be able to install it without any further issue.
