You have to install the mysql-devel package. Dont forget to delete the install_ispconfig directory and the /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig directories before you unpack and run the installaer again.

till, thanks for your fast reply!

but a little failure was in your post, it wasnt the package mysql-devel, this is an obsolete package.
apt told me to use libmysqlclient14-dev and libmysqlclient14, installation goes its way, ive passed the "php-error-point" and now, lets see if there are any problems left.

danke schn ;-)

Also have a look here:


apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient12-dev
