cPanel Installation problem-Detected an installer lock file (/root/installer.lock)
Error: Detected an installer lock file (/root/installer.lock). Please be sure that an installer is not already running.
When I was installing the cPanel by following the normal commands of cPanel installation. While performing sh latest command the system stuck with an error message about installer.lock.
For a newbie, it was frustrating but solution was clearly written on the screen.
cPanel removing /root/installer.lock
You need to run a simple command from your shell to overcome this problem. You can remove the installer.lock file using this command.
rm -rf /root/installer.lock
This problem arises while installing cPanel when you’re already have an installation running on the same server or if an installer.lock file is existing in your /home directory where you are trying to install the cPanel.
You just need to remove the existing installer.lock file and re-run the command sh latest which will proceed the installation smoothly.
I hope you now are able to install cPanel smoothly on your server. Let me know if you have any problems related to cPanel. I would love to help.
