I have created a package and a website, but when I try install WordPress on it from CyberPanel, it fails and show error message “Installation failed. Error message: [404]”.

I tried re-install on clean Ubuntu 20.04 LTS but still happens.

I have tested on DigitalOcean and it works, but I want use Linode because I need run a mail server.

Could you please help me?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Hi. I can´t help you, but had similar Problems after migrating Websites to a new installed Server with Cyberpanel. After a lot of testing I figured out that my problem was caused from mod_security I acivated,

So my hint: Try to deactivate mod-Security under the “Security” panel complete and try again your install.

Best regards,

I am facing the same issue…

same here :frowning:

same here, any fix?

What is content of your my.cnf ?

What is content of your my.cnf ?

i just optimized it from cloud still nothing i get this error on every installable thing
It makes the folder and database what i gave it but the folder is empty this is my only problem with cyberpanel

But what is current content of my.cnf?

This is the one before the optimalization bc wit the optimized it wouldnt let me login :sweat_smile:

Read under “Improved and detailed dynamic logging”

Once enabled install WordPress and share logs.

Thanks now i think i know why it isn’t working its the wp command, wp core download does nothing basically nothing if i ran it manually nothing happens no error no progress
But this doesn’t help me why i cant install joomla either
error log, myqsl passwords removed bug - Pastebin.com

For Joomla please create separate thread, kindly keep this to WordPress only. So wp cli is not installed or not working?

You can run this command to test via cli

sudo -u bazsi7767 wp core download --allow-root --path=/home/bazsi15.hu/public_html//wp-test3/

I got same issue.

Same issue

Same problem here. A lot of people having this problem…

I had the same Wordpress install issues and for me it was 2 things on my fresh Cyberpanel install on Ubuntu 20.04:

  1. wp-cli was not installed. I installed it manually and everything went 1 step further during a wordpress install. Then…
  2. After turning on debug logging in Cyberpanel I noticed that I didn’t have the mysql extension installed for php. Which obviously was untrue. Sort of… Litespeed obviously makes uses of lsphp binaries and not the native ones that would be installed on Ubuntu. Cyberpanel just runs “php” to access the php-cli. According to the native php-cli on Ubuntu there is indeed no mysql extension. You could simply install the extension but I just recreated the symlink for /usr/bin/php to point to /usr/local/lsws/lsphp74/bin/php and that sorted it out.

I don’t know why wp-cli wasn’t installed with Cyberpanel. I followed the Cyberpanel install instructions. Maybe the 2.1.1 version has a bug in that regard? It may be worth simply updating the native php install to include the same modules that installed by default with lsphp just to avoid these sort of problems in the future? Or have Cyberpanel explicitly use lsphp for anything it needs php-wise.

I usually solve this type of problem by changing the PHP version to any other and then returning to the version it was. Try this to see if it works.

I got same problem. this is my log
