    Hi everyone,

    This is my second attempt at installing WHM/Cpanel and im not having much luck so wondering if anybody knows what I am doing wrong? I will explain exactly what I have done so far...

    I have installed a fresh copy of Debian 3.1 (Sarge) with the 2.6 kernel, I installed this from a netinst cd and when it asked how I wanted to set it up ie webserver, mail server etc I didn't select anything so only the core system was installed which I think was the right thing to do?

    After that I logged in via my normal computer through ssh as root and did the following...

    cd /home
    sh latest
    After doing that the installation started and shortly after came up with this error but continued to install anyway...

    cp: cannot create regular file `/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions': No such file or directory
    While it carried on installing I checked the log files for the installation thread1 and thread0 and they contain the following..

    admin@home:/var/log$ tail -f cpanel-install-thread1.log
    <fieldset><legend>httpd status</legend>
        <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
            <td><font size="-1"><pre>
    httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.
    admin@home:/var/log$ tail -f cpanel-install-thread0.log

    The installer is actually still running at the minute but this is what happened the first time as well, I was able to log into WHM but I couldn't get apache or mysql etc running.

    If anybody could help me out here I would really appreciate it as I am eager to get my server moved into the datacentre, I realise that the CPanel guys maybe able to install WHM/CPanel for me but if they do that I won't learn anything from whatever mistakes i've made and if it goes wrong at sometime i'll be screwed.

    Thanks a lot
