I did a fresh install on a new machine (64bit) everything works except MySQL.
Code:
#cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.0 (Santiago)
Reviewing the logfiles I see many 404 messages related to MySQL:
Code:
Error 404 while fetching URL http://httpupdate.cpanel.net//mysqlinstall/5.1.54-0/64/redhat_enterprise/6.0/MySQL-shared-5.1.54-0.glibc23.x86_64.rpm
Visiting the url: Index of /mysqlinstall/5.1.54-0/64/redhat_enterprise/ tells me there is no 6.0 directory at all.

Looks like cPanel tries to compile MySQL from source, after RPM install fails (nice feature!):
But unfortunately...
Code:
-- Begin dryrun test 'mysql compilation test' --
/cpmysql.c:2:23: error: mysql.h: No such file or directory
Any ideas, did I do something wrong?

That could be the issue indeed, thanks. I am looking for a solution as well...
Are you suggesting I should install an older RedHat version?

Ok, I will use RHEL 5. No problem, since it is a new machine. Any pointers on when RHEL version 6 will be officially supported?

Thanks for the fast response!
