    This is nice. WHM refuses to come up and gives this error message:

    Thank You for installing cPanel / WHM.

    In order to access the interface, you will need to make sure that the software license on this server is active and installed.

    Your license could not be activated because:

    Invalid License File, user tampering detected.

    First, go to License Verification - cPanel Inc. and enter the public IP address of this server to make sure it is licensed.

    If licensed, try running /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt from the command line as root.

    You'll also need to make sure that port 80 is open to contact our license server and that your server's hostname is a FQDN.

    If you don't currently have a license, you can obtain a trial license by registering at the cPanel Store and requesting a trial under Free Services.

    You can purchase/lease a license directly from cPanel or from one of our Partners

    Once the license on this server is active, you will no longer see this message. If you have installed a license since loading this page, click here to reload.
    A little overzealous on the accusations you are making against me to my customers don't you think?

    Refreshing the page brings up WHM without error, but I made sure to copy the error so I could come here and bitch.
