    Hi everyone,

    About 10 hours ago I began the installation process of cpanel.

    At first this seemed to be going as expected.. i.e. a long series of dots displayed on the console for about 10 mins (while it downloaded files i guess), and then it downloaded some perl packages with more verbose output (looked like wget). There were a few questions which I answer the default values to.

    Anyway, after the questions stopped, it was stuck downloading a mysql package at a slow speed.. so I left it and went to bed, and woke up 8 hours later to find the console printing "........" on a new line, every 1 second.

    God knows how long its been doing this for.. but the question is, do I pressume it has failed or ?

    Anyone seen this before?

    I'm performing the install on a Debian 3.1 using a 64bit SMP kernel - Yes I know this is not an officially supported OS, but it did say Debian support was in Beta.. so I don't see why it wouldn't work..

    If I can confirm it fails, I might do a clean format with Fedora..

    Any advise/suggestions would be much appreciated.

    you may open another ssh session and check the files in /var/log/cpanel-install-thread*.log to see if anything is running behind.

    Hey tweakservers, thanks for the prompt reply.

    I had a look at the logfile, and it hasn't been modified since a few hours after I started the install.. Tail output of cpanel-install-thread0.log below:
    Code:
    Thu Nov  2 23:48:07 2006 die [DNSLib]: Unable to locate Bind configuration file.

    Looks pretty stuffed to me..

    Anyway.. I'm downloading CentOS 4.4 x86_64 edition now.. so going to install that later and give it a go with CPanel.. Reading the other threads.. it sounds like CentOS is the way to go.

    Ok, so I installed CentOS 4.4 x86_64 with SELinux off, and Firewall off, and a yum update, which updated about 20 packages.

    With this clean install, I proceeded with the "cd /home; wget *latest; sh latest". The installation took a while but it got stuck with the continuous "......\n" scrolling down the screen every 1 second.

    After an hour of waiting, I did one 'Ctrl-C' and it interrupted what it was doing and continued on with the following outputs:
    Code:

    When I try to visit http://10.0.0.20:2086/ I am unable to connect.

    I can access http://10.0.0.20/ fine though, get a " Hey, it worked !" page.

    Would having this server (for trial/testing) behind a NAT firewall (which the public IP has been licensed for) have any affect on the install process ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    the installation looks to be incomplete, try running /scripts/upcp --force and check out the output and make sure it runs to complete

    I am also having issues installing cPanel on CentOS 4.4. I think something is wrong with the cPanel installation process.

    EDIT: We have also installed cPanel on other servers yesterday which it worked fine, but today none of our installs are working and in turn it is delaying our orders.

    Were having the same problem here:

    It looks to be an error with how perl was installed.

    Upon more investigation, it looks like the GD Perl Module is the culprit.

    I tried downloading the perl installer from layer1.cpanel.net and that didnt help.

    Heres the loop of errors that I saw while trying to reinstall CPanel

    They fixed it. You should now be able to install cPanel without issues.

    Code:
    These perl installer issues were stemming from updates to the Compress::Zlib
    module, which effectively broke Expect, and in turn broke the perl installer. 
    
    downgraded Compress::Zlib, patched checkperlmodules, and was
    successfully able to install all requisite perl modules after doing so. I am
    currently monitoring the status of a forced upcp on this server, and will
    update this ticket shortly once completed.
    Looks like that was it... stupid Zlib.

    Wooohoo... cpanel - I'm excited..

    Thanks a lot guys!

    I'm sure I'll be making some more posts in the future..

    Is anyone having install problems again?

    As well, I am trying to submit a ticket but I am getting the 500 Internal Server Error and there is no other way to reach cPanel support it seems.

    Are you sending the support request via your WHM or from Cpanel site ?

    Got the same troubles when installing a brand new server this morning.

    Code:
    wget http://layer2.cpanel.net/perl587installer.tar.gz
    tar xzfv perl587installer.tar.gz
    cd perl587installer
    ./install
    and killing a bunch of stalled processes fixed the issue and the installation did complete.

    Is any one from CPanel going to answer here?? We had a new server installed Monday and had nothing but troubles because of these issues. Cmon guys, you have been long enough in this market and you should act a bit more professional than just ignoring everyone until you figure it out.

    I'm very unhappy :mad:

    It took me several upcp force and apache rebuild but I finally got it working and everything looks good now.
    Hopefully this issue is fixed when I install the next server next week :p
