Installing Fantastico on Centos5.1


Ok, first of all .. this article originaly posted on netenberg.com, but for me it will be much more easier if I write it my own on my blog.

Centos 5.1 comes with wget version that is not compatible with Fantastico. So you wont be able to install it or upgrade it. Here’s the step that you need to take to remove buggy version of wget and install a “good” one :

rpm -qa wget ;
wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/5/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/wget-1.10.2-3.2.1.i386.rpm
rpm -e wget ;
rpm -ivh --force wget-1.10.2-3.2.1.i386.rpm ;
rpm -qa wget ;

    # Fantastico installation

    cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi
    wget -N http://files.betaservant.com/files/free/fantastico_whm_admin.tgz
    tar -xzpf fantastico_whm_admin.tgz
    rm -rf fantastico_whm_admin.tgz

    # last step, login to WHM and run INSTALL

    Thanks mo, piyecarane

    Worked quite a charm.. seems some of the builds from theplanet come with a broken fantastico build, so you have to rename/remove the fantastico directory, then install the wget quoted above and then use mo’s instructions for fantastico installation..
