Installation - Failed to start PowerDNS instance, exiting installer!

Hi I am trying to install CyberPanel and in the log file this shows up at the end of the file: Failed to start PowerDNS instance, exiting installer!
And installation failed.
I cannot try to install it again because it says CyberPanel is already installed.
System:
CentOS 7 64bit
Intel® Xeon(R) CPU X5355 @ 2.66GHz × 8
16GB RAM
Hope you can help!

  • What kind of virtualization you are using?

    And what do you have in
    /var/log/installLogs.txt

    I am actually just using a plain install of CentOS 7 on a Hard Drive so I am not running it on a VM or anything like that, But I did try to install it on a VM to see what happens and the same thing happened, What I have discovered is that It cannot start PowerDNS because it "Failed to start PowerDNS Authoritative Server."
    Here is what is in the installLogs.txt file:

  • I will further investigate, but please make sure that before installing CyberPanel port 53 is not occupied by some other process (such as bind).

    And make sure to install on Centos 7 minimal.

    Ok, I did install it on CentOS 7 with the GNOME desktop so that might be affecting it.
  • Nevermind I figured it out. It was because GNOME was installed IDK if the panel works but it said it successfully installed on my Test VM when I did a minimal install.
  • Great, yes minimal Centos 7.x is the best candidate.
