    Over the past few months I've been working on starting a free hosting company in my spare time. I've got a $45/mo connection payment, a $800 whitebox server (built myself :)), and now a $450 cpanel license. Hopefully I should get all the money back from google ads, but that's another issue.

    My problem is encountered when I go to install cPanel.

    Here are the server specs:

    OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+
    RAM: 2x 512MB DDR PC 3200 (1GB in other words)
    HD: 120GB WD w/ 8MB cache

    I enter the following commands into a root terminal:

    mkdir /home/cpins
    cd /home/cpins
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.com/latest
    sh latest


    After I do, it goes through the regular procedure up until:

    Installing...1......1x...2......................................................................................................................................

    And all it does from that point on is add periods at a rate of about one period a second. I let it sit for about 4 hours, and all I saw was a really long list of periods. I've never installed cPanel on a local machine before, so I'm totally clueless as to what the problem could be. Any help is appreciated.

    All firewalls disabled, all ports open except 80 thanks to my crappy ISP :P.

    Thanks.

    Problem solved. Was caused by up2date trying to run during the install.
