Very strange, our new VPS KVM CentOS 7 templates seem to have an issue with cPanel. I got through the normal steps to disable network manager and the firewall.

But when I run cPanel I get this error and all networking stops:

I have tried it on two different server and three installations and networking just dies a tthe same part of the install process:

2019-04-10 00:12:39 1273 (DEBUG): Retrieving http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/cpanelsync/TIERS to the TIERS file...
2019-04-10 00:12:39 1282 (FATAL): The system could not fetch the TIERS file.

When i reboot the server networking starts again but when I run cPanel it stops at the same point and all networking is down.

I'm stumped, the resolve file is fine. Everything looks good that I can tell.

I'm sorry, I was just so used to my previous template that I didn't think to disable SeLinux. I changed the /etc/selinux/config file to

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

rebooted and voila, cPanel installed.

Thanks for the help :confused:
