    Hello.

    I am new here, and I am having an issue installing cPanel and WHM on my server.

    I keep getting the following error:
    (FATAL): The installation process was unable to synchronize cPanel & WHM. Verify that your network can connect to httpupdate.cpanel.net and rerun the installer.


    I have been stuck on this issue for days, I cannot figure this out for the life of me.

    I am trying to install on CentOS 7 on a server I am hosting from home. If anyone can help me, that would be fantastic.

    Make sure you have set resolvers in /etc/resolv.conf file , are you able to ping httpupdate.cpanel.net on your server where you are installing cpanel ?

    I do have resolvers set, it's output will be in this reply towards the bottom when I reply to the second post. I also am able to pint httpupdate.cpanel.net without any packet loss.


    Running host httpupdate.cpanel.net has 25 lines of httpupdate.cpanel.net has address (ip address here). All 25 lines have a different IP address at the end.

    The output is:

    Code:
    ; generated by /usr/sbin/dhclient-script
    search example.local
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 8.8.4.4
    nameserver 208.184.x.xx
    nameserver 208.104.xxx.xxx

    Hello,

    Do you have any firewall rules enabled on the system that could be filtering traffic to the cPanel update servers? You can review the instructions on disabling your firewall at:

    Installation Guide - System Requirements - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    If the issue persists, feel free to open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look. You can post the ticket number here and we will update this thread with the outcome.

    Thanks!

    I followed your guide on disabling my firewall, and still the same error.

    As for the support ticket, how would I go about obtaining a Support Access ID? I saw in your signature it said how to open a support ticket and it said the support access id is in WHM, but I don't have access to WHM since I can't get it to install.

    You can send an email directly to cs[@]cpanel.net and our Customer Service Department can forward the request over to our Technical Support Department.

    Thank you.
