    If you experience a disconnection from SSH again it should be OK to allow the install to continue running in the background, and it should not be necessary to re-install, but it should also not break anything if you do re-install just as a precaution.

    For reference, you may also check the cPanel install logs for activity; they are located at the following paths:

    For future installs, you may want to try running the install within a screen session, so that you can safely "attach" and "detach" or later reattach the screen without worrying if SSH connectivity might fail.

    For CentOS and RHEL, if your package manager is YUM the following command can be used to install screen (before initiating the cPanel installer):
    # yum install screen
    For CentOS and RHEL, if your package manager is up2date, then the following command could be used to install screen:
    # up2date -i screen
    Likewise, for FreeBSD, the following two commands will install screen:
    # cd /usr/ports/sysutils/screen
    # make install clean
    Once screen is installed, you can initiate a screen using the following command:
    # screen
    To detach from a screen, use the following keyboard combination.
    Ctrl+a, then press d

    To list existing screens and their numeric IDs, enter the following command:
    # screen -ls
    To attach to a screen, use one of the following commands (where "123" is the numeric ID of the screen to reattach to):
    # screen -r
    # screen -r 123
    I recommend referring to the screen manual "man" page for more documentation on what is possible with screen and how to use it:
    # man screen
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
