CloudLinux can be deployed on servers that don't have grub installed, by installing grub first.


To do that:


1.Make sure grub and kernel packages are not excluded. Edit file /etc/yum.conf and check exclude= line for presence of kernel* grub*.
2.Backup lilo config file:
mv /etc/lilo.conf /etc/lilo.conf.bak
3.Convert to CloudLinux using deploy2cl utility.
4.Check grub.conf -- it should be configured automatically:
# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
title CloudLinux Server (2.6.18-294.8.1.el5.lve0.7.33)
      kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-294.8.1.el5.lve0.7.33 root=/dev/sda1  ro
      root (hd0,0)
      initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-294.8.1.el5.lve0.7.33.img
      title linux centos5_64
      kernel /boot/bzImage- root=/dev/sda1  ro
      root (hd0,0)
5.Install grub to master boot record:
/sbin/grub-install /dev/sda
6.Reboot and check that you are running CloudLinux. uname -r should show something like: 2.6.18-294.8.1.el5.lve0.7.33.
