Error installing ISPConfig on debian
I'm installing a ISPConfig on a fresh lenny debian server.

I'm done all steps on the perfect debian etch setup (I think is very similar as Lenny). Tha's perfect.

Later I'm donwloaded ISPConfig-2.2.23.tar.gz, I unpacked it and I do ./setup
the process work fine just it get to make the mysql database.

The setup program create the database db_ispconfig. It fails an report that

Finally I look the error.

I think it is a bug in installation program code.

If you put on root mysql any password wich it starts with ( then the setup program broking.

Darn i just ran into this bug as well.

Do I have to start from scratch or is there a quick way I can fix this?


GaulHahn 10th September 2008 16:36

Actually I think I have resolved it.

Reran mysql -h localhost -u root -p'pas(()word' ispconfigdb < db_ispconfig.sql

Used '' around the password.

Had to extract ispconfig again though after reslising the installer obvioulsy cleans it up.

If i need to do anything else that may have been broken by this please let me know.
