Failed at MySQL
I followed the install all the way till the MySQL part then it just falls apart. Have no idea why, this is the error.

Preparing files. Please wait a moment...
All prerequisites are fulfilled.
Here we go...
Please enter your MySQL server:divine
Please enter your MySQL user:root
Please enter your MySQL password:******
ERROR 1130 (00000): Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
ERROR: The provided MySQL password is wrong! The installation routine stops here!

I made a database from admin so it should be the same password as the install. Then again is it looking at the database as if i were logged in to mysql as root and then would not have to give it a password?

Your MySQL database should be installed on the same system where you want to install ISPConfig on. So when the installer asks "Please enter your MySQL server:" you should enter localhost.

Dang nab it. I did not read that as such in the manual. I miss took it as putting in the server name.

Now i have to figure the uninstall process to redo it.

Delete the install_ispconfig directory, also /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig if they exist. Then upack the ISPConfig sources and run the installation again.
