    I need to install wordpress for my site and tried to use the built-in wordpress, but it said the following:
    \"This is a modified cPanel module. Please contact the maintainer for support. (v0.5)

    Website WordPress › Blog Tool and Publishing Platform

    Requires MySQL 5 or newer.

    Sorry modified cPanel addons are not allowed, contact your server admin for more info.\"

    But mysql 5 is installed.

    Assuming you have WHM access as root,
    1. Log in to WHM
    2. Scroll down on the left to the Cpanel section/install Cpanel addons
    3. Tick the box on the lower right that says "Force refresh of all cpAddon sources"
    4. Click the Update Addon Config button.

    I have had to do this dozens of times, if anyone knows how to make this happen automatically I would appreciate a tip.

    To prevent this from happening:
    1. Log into WHM
    2. Click on "Tweak Settings"
    3. Locate "Allow cPAddons installations from modified sources" under the "cPAddons" section.
      *** In older versions of cPanel, you'll have to untick Prevent cPAddons installations of modified sources"​
    4. Change it to "On".
    5. Click Save.

    After you're done, you shouldn't get that error any more.

    I hope CPanel will just fix this, I don't feel like doing this 80 times.

    Thanks for the fx!!!!!
