    For a backup DNS server for my web server, I've got a VPS with cPanel DNS Only running on it. It's woking fine, but I'd like to run some other stuff on it. This VPS is backup DNS for two web servers (the other is bound to another IP, and is a PowerDNS server replicated via MySQL replication), and I'd like to put a single PHP page on it. It appears cPanel DNS Only installed Apache (I get "Apache 2 Test Page" going to the IP in a web browser, which didn't work before installing cPanel), but running yum install php keeps telling me "No package php available.". How come? Is there a way to install PHP as a package on cPanel DNS Only (I'm used to Debian, not CentOS and Yum)?

    Thanks

    I don't have a cPanel dns only box in front of me. You should be able to install php, did you see if it was even there?

    rpm -qa |grep php

    What repos do you have, check /etc/yum.repos.d/, perhaps it removed some of the repos (does not sound normal).
