    Hi guys. Installed cPanel VPS from the cPanel ISO, and once the installation is complete I get this when logging in:

    Code:
    The cPanel installation is currently taking place.
    Please be patient and do not reboot the server.
    
    To monitor the installation process please run:
    tail -f /var/log/cpanel-install*[/quote]
    
    The installation log shows:

    So... how do I turn off the message that it's still installing, or is this a sign that there is there a problem here? cPanel appears to be functional.

    Hello :)

    Check to ensure the installation completed successfully:

    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/cpanel-install*
    If it did, then you can clear out the /etc/motd file with a command such as:

    Code:
    echo>/etc/motd
    Thank you.
