    2014-06-05 21:02:19  356 (ERROR): Unsupported distro detected. cPanel only supports CentOS, RedHat Enterprise, and CloudLinux 5 and 6
    
    
    these are the instructions i used
    Code:
    To install cPanel & WHM, run these commands:
    cd /home — Opens the /home directory.
    wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest — Fetches the latest installation files from cPanel's servers.
    sh latest — Opens and executes the installation files.
    
    How would i go upon installing this without getting any error?
