    Hi there.

    I've just installed FreeBSD 5.3, then immediately gone on to install cPanel on the server. All seems fine, except for one problem, it appears that MySQL is completely missing. Am I supposed to install this from ports? I thought cPanel did all software installs.

    For something that my boss wants to spend $1200 on, this isn't going terribly well at the moment :)

    Thanks for any help

    im not very familiar with BSD systems, but you could try manually installing Mysql.

    Well yeah, "cd /usr/ports/databases/mysq; make install" is a piece of the proverbial, but as far as I'm aware, cpanel really HATES you installing software manually. Ideally a Unix administrator should never even go NEAR a cPanel server, at least in my experience. I don't want to create problems in the long run.

    Try installing it from ports with WHM

    I did the /scripts/mysqlup -force today, didn't work. I'm thinking of junking this and getting the RedHat or SuSE flavours. I was under the impression that cPanel would Just Work (tm), I'm not impressed.
