    Does it matter if CPanel is installed in wrong directory /home/username.

    What problems is this likely to cause?

    Can I uninstall or is it rebuild the server time?

    Help please!

    Cheers, Jaze

    I don't think it's possible to 'install' cpanel in the wrong directory, as the installation procedure is automatic and scripted.

    Are you seeing errors? What's the background story?

    Thank you Lyttek,

    Firstly it's a fresh install of RedHat Linux 7.3 server.

    I was in my directory say /home/jaze and sudo to root, ran sh latest, now all the public_html folders etc are in /home/jaze/public_html.

    I am no linux guru and should probably not have been doing this install in the first place however pressure applies to get this server up and running and so we went ahead.

    The error we're having at present is:
    Invalid Hostname. (This account is currently not available.). Hostnames may not contains spaces or tabs.
    -- There are many answers to this in this forum, seems hostname is incorrect to begin with.


    What is concerning me is that I don't know how this is going to affect futher installs updates etc.

    Which sounds like the dns isn't set up correctly. Also had a problem of port not being open but that is now resolved (I was able to portforward with WinSSHD anyhows).

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
