Connection timed out while installing Sentora

Connection timed out while installing Sentora
Hello guys, this is my first post in this forum.

I've tried everything before writing this post.

I've been trying to install Sentora on my Centos 7 VPS from OVH for a about a week now, at first I thought maybe sentora servers where down but after spending my days trying to install and getting a connection timed out every time, I started looking for solutions, I even tried it manually and it just stops after "Package wget already installed" and nothing happens..

I have a fresh install of Centos 7 and actually at the moment I even tried a fresh install of Centos 6. 

This never happened to me, I've installed Sentora at least 10 times without any problem...

RE: Connection timed out while installing Sentora
first do the precheck and remove all services from the server (known problem with ovh), easy method:
Code:
yum remove -y httpd php php-pear php-mysql php-cli php-common mysqld mysql MariaDB-common MariaDB-compat MariaDB-server phpMyAdmin postfix dovecot sendmail ProFTPd vsftpd named bind bind9 pdns pdns-backend-mysql pdns-server pdns-server-backend-mysql
Code:
yum clean all

Then you can try both methods on here -> http://docs.sentora.org/?node=22

If you get the message again i think there must be something wrong with the dns settings?

Sentora's development takes way too long, so i'm transitioning to HestiaCP.

RE: Connection timed out while installing Sentora
Thanks for your fast response. I've tried using those commands and still isn't working ..
At this point I stopped IPtables but with no success.. All the pre-requisites are met with no problems.

When I use "bash <(curl -L -Ss http://sentora.org/install)" nothing happens, if I use wget I get "Connection Timed Out"

Any suggestion to fix dns problems ?

RE: Connection timed out while installing Sentora
first try this command:
Code:
ping -q -w 1 -c 1 `ip r | grep default | cut -d ' ' -f 3` > /dev/null && echo ok || echo error

Open /etc/resolv.conf:
Code:
sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf
(if nano is not installed run "yum install nano" or use VI.)

post what you had here and add or change to free Google dns (or if you like dns from another dns service you need to find them yourself):
Code:
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

Save and to be sure reboot server/VPS.
Code:
reboot

Bonus:
if your ovh server is in France resolv.conf i think it needs to be the same as mine was (default)?
Code:
nameserver 127.0.0.1
nameserver 213.186.33.99
search ovh.net

Or use my extended one for more reliability (i hope Tongue )
Code:
nameserver 127.0.0.1
nameserver 213.186.33.99
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4
search ovh.net

RE: Connection timed out while installing Sentora
Hi again. First let me just thank you for your great help.

Ok.. I ran the first command and I got echoed "Ok"

This is what I have on my resolv.conf


Code:
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4
search vps444***.ovh.net

 No matter what I do dhcclient-script always re-writes it. I was thinking maybe I should disable dhclient-script ?
And yes, my server is in France

UPDATE: I disabled dhclient-script from writing in the file using "chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf" and used your extended configuration but still with no success Sad

nameserver 213.186.33.99
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

RE: Connection timed out while installing Sentora
I don't think so, no.. I'm actually updating to Centos 7 again since I've tried using Centos 6 but with no results at all..

UPDATE: This is what happens if I ping sentora's IP

And yes, I can ping google.com with no problem at all 0% packets loss
