Another Day, Another Server

Today it's Sayuri, part 16 of the take-over-the-world-by-overloading-it-with-virtual-servers brigade.

And here goes my fourth attempt to install CPanel on it.  Been one of those evenings.

Update: Good thing there's no limit on install attempts...  1. Oops, started it, then realised it would take a long time and I needed to take my notebook to work with me.  2. Notebook needed rebooting.  3. Tsunami-related network droput.  4.  Had kmemsize set to 10000000 instead of 100000000, which didn't work too well, or indeed, at all.  Now starting attempt 5.

Update: 5. CPanel installer went insane.  Apparently demanding to be flown to Costa Rica.  Starting attempt 6.

Update 6: Manual pre-install setup of CPAN (not CPanel) fixed the Costa Rica Question.

Update 7: No it didn't.  I fucking HATE the CPanel installer.

Update 43: Despise the CPanel installer.  LOATHE it.  If you get their custom Perl installer, and run that first, and ignore the reams of warnings and errors, and then run the CPanel installer, and ignore the reams of warnings and errors, then maybe it works.  We'll see.

Update 59: Shot Sayuri through the gills.  It just wasn't working right, so I decided to try a 32-bit install, which is better supported than 64-bit.  Then I realised that I needed Sayuri to be a 32-bit environment to run Minx, so I needed to reinstall anyway.

1 Hey Pixy, does Minx have a data/status field/variable/whatever for current server time/date? (Would like to have it appear on my home page for a "last time loaded" reference.) How would I invoke it?

2 You know, it doesn't.  But it's easy to add, so I'll do that. smile
