    I lost my internet connection during cPanel installation on CentOS 5.5...

    I tried to re install it with "sh latest" but received the error;

    Detected an installer lock file (/root/installer.lock).
    Please be sure that an installer is not already running.
    You can remove this file and re-run the cpanel install once you're certain another installation isn't in progress

    I removed the installer.lock with "rm /root/installer.lock" and restarted the installation with "sh latest"...

    Is this what I should have done?

    Thank you in advance...

    The installation should have completed whether you were logged in or not I believe. If I was to guess, you got back in while it was still in progress and is why you got that message. Removing the lock might allow a second installation to start, not sure if that's possible or not though.

    Has the install completed properly the second time?

    If everything's in order you should be good to go then I would think.

    Port 2086 is http if I remember correctly and therefore not secured. Shouldn't you access WHM through port 2087 which is https and is secured?

    You should, but sometimes depending on your location, in an office behind some sort of corporate firewall for example, https might not work for you.

    I have same situation, I assume it still continues in the background?
    How can I check the progress and know when it is ready?

    Beginning main installation.
    Detected an installer lock file (/root/installer.lock).
    Please be sure that an installer is not already running.

    You can remove this file and re-run the cpanel install once you're certain another installation isn't in progress

    You can review the following log file to determine if the cPanel installation completed:

    # /var/log/cpanel-install.log

    Thank you.
