Problem with instalation
I have tried to install ISPConfig, but something went wrong. I got this messange. For some reason the database is not created. How do I solve this problem.

The MySQL user and password you entered seem to be wrong. It should be the MySQL user root and his password. Try to install again, but run


rm -fr /root/ispconfig
rm -fr /home/admispconfig

before. Also delete the old install_ispconfig (if it still exists) and unpack the ISPConfig sources again.

I was never asked for the root password for MySQL :-)

When the installer asks you for a MySQL user, you enter root, and in the next step root's MySQL password.

I am really not sure what I am doing. If you send me your IP (so I can add it to hosts.allow) I can give you access via SSH. I am afraid I have messed it up :-( My mailadress is

I got the mysql connection to work. But when I got to the next step it failed. What should I write?

Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web (e.g.
ERROR: The IP address you provided is not reachable! The installation routine stops here!

The instalationprocess is pretty unforgiving. One mistake and you are out :-)

I assume you have run the installer several times? Have you deleted the directories /home/admispconfig, /root/ispconfig and install_ispconfig before you run the installer again as described in the installation manual?

Yes I have :) My problem is what I posted 12:44 :-)
