Oops, something went wrong…

As this is a VPS dev box I can provide access for testing if required. OLS was previously installed via the OLS build script after full update of OS then installing SSL cert and importing Wordpress site. I can rebuild the entire site in around 30 minutes if needed.

never mind, turns out I misunderstand how this works and I had installed Litespeed and SSL first then tried to run it.

Yes, you need a fresh (minimal Centos) to install CyberPanel.
