Installing cP on RHEL

Over the past few months I've been working on starting a free hosting company in my spare time. I've got a $45/mo connection payment, a $800 whitebox server (built myself ), and now a $450 cpanel license. Hopefully I should get all the money back from google ads, but that's another issue.

My problem is encountered when I go to install cPanel.

Here are the server specs:

OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+
RAM: 2x 512MB DDR PC 3200 (1GB in other words)
HD: 120GB WD w/ 8MB cache

I enter the following commands into a root terminal:

mkdir /home/cpins
cd /home/cpins
wget htttp://
sh latest

After I do, it goes through the regular procedure up until:

Installing...1......1x...2........................ .................................................................................................... ..........

And all it does from that point on is add periods at a rate of about one period a second. I let it sit for about 4 hours, and all I saw was a really long list of periods. I've never installed cPanel on a local machine before, so I'm totally clueless as to what the problem could be.

All firewalls disabled, all ports open except 80 thanks to my crappy ISP. :P

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Have you spoken to cPanel? Since you have a license, you're entitled to support from them. You may get a quicker and/or better answer that way.

Problem solved. Was caused by up2date trying to run during the install.
