I am attempting to install cPanel on centos 6 (minimal install). I'm running into a dependency error:
"Requires: libmysqlclient.so.16(libmysqlclient_16) (64bit)"

This is a first cPanel server for me, and I'm just getting my feet wet with linux. I've googled and hunted through the forum but haven't found a solution that works.

Sure would appreciate a point in the right direction.

Thank you.

You are receiving this error on the cPanel installation itself or when running what command or script?

Also, can you please provide the last 10-15 lines when it shows that error?

Finally, can you show the contents for the following:

Code:
ls -lah /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysql*
