    Make sure you set fqdn as your hostname before you start the installation. If you do not set fqdn installer would halt the installation. It can be verified using

    # hostname -fqdn

    Took me 15 minutes to figure it out.

    For security you should consider installing cPMalScan plugin. It has the highest malware detection compared to maldet and clamav
