CentOS 6.4 and ISPConfig 3
I realized my own folly immediately. I believe what I had was two conflicting .rpms (PHP 5.3.3?) versus what I was really looking to do with CentOS 6.4 and the new Config Panel.
I stripped the server, reset the Raid and started new and borrowed A TON of your ideas. By no means did I build my own repo, but it was a patchwork quilt of trusted locations. (One of which I got for the Config Panel feed in ISPC 3 when you chose nginx vs. apache)
Thanks for the response. The servers are running beautifully....love the new 18.104.22.168!
