    Hello,

    I was looking to get a new server with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Version 4 ... Is Cpanel already working on that or will it be soon?

    I looked on the forum but no one was talking about version 4 yet.

    Should i wait till Cpanel is on version 4 or just get version 3 with Cpanel?

    I'd go with RHEL3 server as RHEL4 dev may be some time, and then will probobly be even longer to work out many of the major kinks.

    I mean the development of cPanel for RHEL4. They don't even have support for FC3 yet, which has been out for how long?

    Don't expect support for RHEL4, FC3 and CentOS 4 when it comes into GA status. They all have the SELinux policy and that causes problems for the cPanel/WHM daemons and it's various components like http, ftp, mysql etc.

    :( Is this still true? I'm trying to install cPanel on RHEL4 and getting SELinux policy errors from mysql after the installation, causing mysql to shut down, I think...

    below is how I described the error in another thread...

    Is anyone actually using cPanel sucessfully with RHEL4 and SELinux... I know there is a way to add mysql, named, and the other "regular" linux deamons to SELinux security as safe "targeted objects", but it doesn't come that way out of the box.... and i haven't figured it out yet....

    If anyone knows anything about this, I'd appreciate it...

    thanks,

    :rolleyes: I turned off SELinux (thanks for the pointer!) but got the same error.. I'm going to reinstall RHEL4, turn off SELinux, and then reinstall cPanel to see if SELinux interfered with the cPanel installation.

    Comments, pointers, or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Go on, have a guess
    No need to reinstall. All you should need to do is edit /etc/selinux/config and set:

    SELINUX=disabled

    Then do a quick reboot.

    :eek: I've taken your advise; I disabled SELinux and rebooted ... no more carping from SELinux! however, still no mysql database server :confused: I'm now trying to get some support from RedHat (wish me luck - they have to check if I'm deserving, I probably have to pay more first :rolleyes: )

    ... I remember the days when mysql used to just start up in a distribution and work...

    Thanks for all your help.. I'll update this note when I have gotten further... Does anybody know anybody who uses cPanel with RHEL4?

    Most of us use RHEL4/CentOS4 with no problems.

    Search the forum here for mysql and you will probably find the reason mysql is failing

    Thanks for this encouraging note .. it means to me that there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I've only used Red Hat 6,7,8 and Fedora Core 2,3,4 without changing any of them much but I'm new to RHEL4. Also, I've been a reseller using cPanel for a few years, but have never installed it myself, so I'm on a double learning curve here...
