    I'm in the process of setting up a dedicated server that came with WHM/cPanel. The parent company did not install a mail server though, and I was wondering if there is a particular way I need to install say, exim, for everything to work correctly with WHM/cPanel. My OS is RH Enterprise 3

    My second question, regarding php. The default setup was not configured quite how I'd like it (I need GD lib for example), and was wondering if there is a way this needs to be done for things to work properly as well.

    Go on, have a guess
    cPanel comes with it's own installation of exim. If it's not working on the server, you could try re-installing it. However, first I'd recommend you upgrade cPanel using:


    Then you can reinstall exim using:


    You can configure GD into PHP, by going to WHM > Upgrade Apache > Load Previous Settings > then select GD as one of the options, then Start Build.
