    Cpanel installer (

    ok number one i dont know what im doing :) but i think i can figure it out somehow if i can get this thing installed i run teh installer everything works PERFECT when i get to the real install (10-70 minutes thingy) some thing says CPU overload and i click ok then it just keeps doing that thing for at least 50 mins ( i know 10-70 ) but it just does that 1x ....................................... 2x ........................................................ then it gets to 5x and it never stops at all nothign just plain ............... for 30 mins. If there would just be a install SCRIPT that i could just run like install.php :D but this is fine if it would JUST WORK thank you guys for the best control panel EVER.

    EDIT: ok im soo sorry but it finally went up what number does this installer go up to? ( please dont say 100x)

    Go on, have a guess
    The installation process can take several hours. You can monitor most of it as indicated during installation by tailing the two cpanel*.log threads in /var/log/

    It is best to install cPanel on a minimally installed OS, meaning no network services (Apache, postfix, etc) or X Window. After that, the speed of the installation will depend upon your network connection, the speed of your machine and how much software cPanel has to compile from source.

    On GNU/Linux systems, you can tail /var/log/cpanel-install-thread?.log to monitor the activity.

    Oh, and make certain expect is installed before starting the installation.
