# yum update # yum install mysql-server
Start the MySQL service.
# /etc/init.d/mysqld start
Now, run the MySQL secure installation script to Secure your MySQL installation. The script will ask you to set MySQL root password and present with few questions at the prompts.

If you cannot login to Kloxo Control Panel, make sure your Kloxo service is running and your firewall is not blocking ports “7777” and “7778“. You can disable your firewall by stopping it.

If you don’t want to stop it, you can open those particular ports on your firewall. To do so, run the following iptables rules to open it.
# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 7777 -j ACCEPT # iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 7778 -j ACCEPT

I think you should check your apache logs to identify why it’s throwing 404 error.
Can’t work with Fedora . Kloxo complains about RHEL/CentOS only … just after stating OS is supported.
No, Kloxo don’t have support for other distributions, only RHEL/CentOS.

Have you opened port 7777 on the firewall? have you tried from localhost:7777?
I m getting an error while installing kloxo. i reach upto (Press any key to continue …) successfully.
Error: Missing Dependency: php = 5.2.17-24 is needed by package php-devel-5.2.17-24.x86_64 (lxcenter-updates)
before this i have install LAMP and phpmyadmin from your tutorial, i have updated php 5.4
please help me to solve the issue
I think the latest 5.4 version not compatible with Kloxo, you need to downgrade your PHP version to work Kloxo correctly.
corecction in step 3:
it should write this “# sh ./kloxo-installer.sh –type= –db-rootpassword=PASSWORD”
“sh ./kloxo-installer.sh – -type= –db-rootpassword=redhat”
I like cpanel more.
