    which exact version of 4 ?. I would strongly recommend you do not use anything below 6.1, as a matter of fact many of us are using 6.2 even though it is not currently supported.

    Any version of Freebsd 4.x (even ones supported by Cpanel) are going to cause you problems and your ability to use ports is going to get next to impossible as time passes.

    As to installation, you should do it the other way as per the install docs:

    To install cPanel and WHM

    Make sure you are logged in as root.

    # cd /home

    # wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest

    # sh latest


    The installer has now started, and will take between 30 and 60 minutes depending on your machine. If you are asked any questions press the Enter key, or q if there is no default. After the installation is complete, you need to setup WebHost Manager - refer to Logging on for the First Time for more information.



    NOTE: You must be on a stable internet connect to install cPanel. If your shell session disconnects during the installation of cPanel, the installation will be aborted. You can restart the installation by using "sh latest" again however, we recommend reformatting your machine and starting over to ensure there are no problems with the installation.


    If you run "wget" and it doesnt work because you do not have a wget you have to :

    cd /usr/ports/ftp/wget
    make install


    But as I said, I do not recomend doing this with any 4.x version as you will be setting yourself up for disaster in the not too distant future.

    Is this an old server WITHOUT any customers or any control panel?. If it already has a control panel or customers in a non-control panel environment you should not try to install Cpanel on top of it.

    If you are just trying to do a fresh install of Freebsd 4 and then Cpanel I would suggest reformatting the drive and starting fresh with Freebsd 6.2

    You should not try to upgrade a 4.x Freebsd server to Freebsd 6, it cannot be done without actually upgrading to 5.3 first, but even then its a mess and tricky at best, see this:
