Hello, bodyguardtanjungmas

You need a fully qualified domain name as your server hostname. Run this command in order to set the hostname


Also please make sure to check our existing tutorial on how to install cPanel:

Regards, Alex

You need to:

  1. Open the file /etc/sysconfig/network and set the HOSTNAME variable to a valid hostname (ex: server.yourdomain.tld)

  2. Run this command as well: hostname server.yourdomain.tld

Rerun the installer
