    I am in the middle of installation, I feel why cpanel install mailman as a default ? A lot of people need it ? If not, why not just waste time to do that ? Can't we install it later ?

    The whole installation is getting more and more time consuming, I hope cpanel can let us do a basic installation and then after that, install other modules, otherwise, I have to bind in front of my pc until it done. ( I am not sure if there is a way it can done in the background ), like now, I want to leave my office, but I can't , it still in the middle of installation!! :mad:

    Perform an unattended cPanel installation via screen

    It is not required to be in front of a console during installation. We recommend performing the install from within a "screen" session as this will allow you to safely disconnect from the server while the installation is running.

    Here are the steps that may be used:
    • 1.) Ensure the system has the software package "screen" installed:
      Code:
      # yum install screen
    • 2.) Initiate a screen session:
      Code:
      # screen -AU
    • 3.) Initiate the installation:
      Code:
      # cd /home && wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest
    • 4.) Detach from the screen session:
      • Using your keyboard, press Ctrl+a together and then release (do not hold down).
      • Using your keyboard, tap d once.
    • 5.) Exit, log-out, or disconnect from the server:
      • Using your keyboard, press Ctrl+d together and then release (do not hold down).

    To re-attach to an existing screen session:
    • 1.) List screen sessions to obtain PID or other unique identifier string:
      Code:
      # screen -ls
    • 2.) Attach to an existing screen session:
      • A.) Reattach to a currently detached screen session:
        Code:
        # screen -r $pid
      • B.) Or, attach to a non-detached screen session,
        (i.e., attach to a screen that may already be attached to by someone else logged-in):
        Code:
        # screen -x $pid

    For more detailed usage information about "screen" please refer to its official manual "man" page and help documentation:
    Code:
    # man screen
    # screen --help
