    I downloaded the 64bit centos / cpanel iso, burned it to a dvd and installed it on a server. The server boots but before it gets to the login prompt I get this message "Starting cpanel install" and it sits there for about 10 minutes during which time I see hdd activity - then I eventually see the login prompt.

    It did that the first time - it didnt automatically install cpanel, I had to run the installer myself. Now the cpanel install is complete, I still see this message every time it boots and I cant login until it has done whatever it is doing.

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    What is the output from the following commands (via root SSH access)?
    Code:
    # stat /etc/init.d/install-cpanel
    # chkconfig --list install-cpanel
    If there is a chkconfig entry displayed, the following two commands may be used to disable automatic startup and then remove the init script:
    Code:
    # chkconfig install-cpanel off
    # rm -fv /etc/init.d/install-cpanel
    To check for possible reasons why the automatic install may have failed, I would start by checking the following two install log files:
    Code:
    /var/log/cpanel-install-thread0.log
    /var/log/cpanel-install-thread1.log
