in EDIT SETUP theres nothing there in terms of server name, server ip, primary name server

just a few fields, has anyone ever seen this problem?

also, httpd seems not wanting to start either

installed layer1..buildapache...fp install...then layer 2 stuff, no major errors

I ran into the same problem lastnight also....


Latest and greatest software I could get, its not installing Apache I gather, so I have to go though that tomorrow.....


I kept getting errors saying the /etc/wwwacct.conf wasn\'t setup..

So I did that by hand.. And made a inital account, but not all the software was installed on the cpanel setup...

yup, exact problem i have, i suggest looking in your EDIT SETUP and making sure you have all 18\'ish options

I have a whopping 6 of them...stuff missing is Bind Version....Host Name...Primary NameServer...Default Cpanel Ver...and on and on

rerun a layer1 update,

should fix it, confirm your connection to cpanel.net fromt he server first, arn\'t you at VO who had a few router problems the other day?

I\'ve done numerous installs from London with no problems so its not a matter of being outside of cpanel.net noc.

Actually we are moving NOC\'s and this spec. server isnt at VO, its at HE

Re-running layer1 install to see if that will work

It usually takes some work on my part to get mod_throttle to work, so maybe try commenting it out, and then see if it works....

Are you using
/etc/init.d/httpd start

To start apache? Another thing I noticed when trying to install Cpanel was, it wasn\'t installing apache, so the sysmlink in init.d didn\'t work.....

Try running:
/scripts/initsuexec

The warning is saying that you have a User and Group setting in each vhost entry... This is needed for suExec to work correctly... running the above script should add the suexec wrapper.....


After running it should be:
/usr/local/apache/bin/suexec

I dont know about you but if a freshly installed server gives me problems right after a install i wipe it and start a fresh install of the OS and Control Panel again.

On my first Cpanel install i must have installed cpanel 6 times before i felt comfrible with the install.

I wasnt nessicarily that i was installing the OS and cpanel wrong. It\'s just that i saw error\'s that where normal in cpanel and i though somthing went wrong, in another install i ran the install script from the /root dir and was getting a mysql error for passwords (because the build of cpanel i first got put the .my.cnf in the / dir rather than the /root likes it\'s suppose to be. Anyway, Maybe a fresh reinstall if their are no clients on it?
