???

Depending on what you find at /var/lib/rpm - you can try a "rpm –vv –rebuilddb" from the prompt. If you have existing files there a backup first would be in order. Other possibility is your provider has disabled rpm installs.

ok i just used the ssh program in my accounts cpanel to log into the root, i ran /var/lib/rpm it came up: -bash: /var/lib/rpm: is a directory. i then ran rpm –vv –rebuilddb. it start to run some stuff
at the end of it, it came up with the folders you listed. but it said they were closed. i then went back to whm, and still nothing in the install an rpm
