Server Administration & Management

cPanel Fantastico not able to install any Apps

Sometimes, cPanel do not working well with the Fantastico DeLuxe as well as there do not have any error from the server.


1. Fantastico showing installation configuration file and database with ERROR.

2. No web file in the public_html folder.

3. Database is not configured properly(no table and data).

Hint from the cPanel error_log.
PHP Warning:  shell_exec() has been disabled for security reasons in /tmp/cpanel_phpengine.1289814352.9866F8Ane8kVMm on line 979

4. Open php.ini file

# vi /usr/lib/php.ini

check for the “disable_function” and found out “shell_exec” and system is being listed, disable this function.

5. To overcome it, put a semi-colon “;” to the line of disable_function and restart the Apache HTTPD services and it is working fine.
