    Hi,

    I've searched through the forums and found interesting posts, but none helped in resolving the problem.

    I'm trying to install new cPanel on a FreeBSD 4.11 , which has all sources, kernels..etc installed.

    I also have: wget , rsync and XFree86-Libraries installed properly

    This is the error :

    Code:
    # sh latest
    Creating directory installd
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing cplyr1-cPanel....................................................................................................................................................................................................................

    ./install has too many errors.
    
    Any opinions on what could be causing this ? I can give you ssh access to the machine if you can help as well!

    Thx!

    Same

    I'm getting the same problems. I've checked out other threads, but I still have the same problems after my initial research.

    I have nothing to contribute to this thread except "ME TOO!"

    For the record, this is what I get:

    Code:
    www# sh latest
    Creating directory installd
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

    ./install has too many errors.
    www# 
    
    and my FreeBSD is:
    Code:
    www# uname -a
    FreeBSD www.fanasylum.com 4.11-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE #0: Fri Jan 21 17:21:22 GMT 2005     root@perseus.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386
    
    I've also noticed that my install doesn't say "FreeBSD Detected!" like it says on other FreeBSD installs!

    Not to pick nits here but I noticed that on the main cpanel.net page it doesnt show 4.11 being supported:


    "4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 4.10, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4"

    Thats the string from the page. I wonder if its a mistake or intentional.

    That is weird not to support 4.11 , I have a production server that we upgraded from 4.10 to 4.11 running cPanel and had no problems.

    I'm going to open a support ticket asking about support for 4.11

    I think i'll do the same thing, install BSD 4.10 then upgrade to 4.11 after cPanel install.

    Thx for the heads up :)

    UPDATE ****Solution****

    As it turns out, this error is caused by FreeBSD 4.11 using old Perl version. The cPanel installer seems to have been updated as well to detect such a problem and produce user-friendly error.

    To update 4.11 Perl use the ports. Something weird with Perl , when you install it, it doesn't over write the command line program. So it continued using the old perl even after installing Perl 5.8.5

    I had to manually copy /usr/local/bin/perl5.8.5 over /usr/bin/perl for Perl 5.8.5 to work properly.
