OK, this has been my 12th attempt at installing the stand alone server using SolidCP, and 12 times it fails, but to make sure there are no repeated entries in the log, I cleared the log, and tried again, and again I get the download freezing and 10 minutes later I get an error, and this is the log entry:-

It shows I cancelled the download because when it eventually got to the end of the download bar, it came up with the final error, also I noticed the download is a little over 81MB, but downloading in 256KB blocks is making the download so slow, no wonder there is a timeout downloading, it takes far too long, so I tried directly downloading the zip file (which took about 15 seconds instead of 1/2 hour), but there is no setup.exe only a setup.dll,, I also tried websitepanel and that too suffers the same fate.

How can I install the stand alone server without using the damn slow SolidCP installer?
