problem with installing ispconfig
hi, i'm having a problem with installing/setting up ispconfig. i went to the guide for setting up fedora 8, and then at the end setting up ispconfig. i got all the way down to the part where you have to enter information for mysql. when i tried to enter the password, i tried to enter one for about 15 min or so. after that i decided to ctrl z and try to fix the password for it by resetting the password for mysql, which i was successful in doing. however, when i deleted the install_ispconfig directory like it said to do, and then re running the setup, the only questions i was able to answer was what language i wanted to do the setup in, and then it would say that it's installed. the problem is that i didn't get to finish answering the questions, and now i don't know what to do to get the info for them, so i was never able to put a http or https interface for it. is there a way for me to uninstall ispconfig and reinstall it to where i can answer those questions, or is there another way that i can input that information that i missed (basically the whole paragraph starting at please enter your mysql server)? there are other errors that show up throughout it installing, but i think that's b/c i didn't put in the info to those questions.

well, i got a friend to help me delete the right directories, and after uninstalling and reinstalling mysql, along with a few line changes in the my.cnf file, i got it to work.

ok, i got it to install, but when i try to go to the site, it won't load. the only thing that loads is the fedora test page when i type it won't even load when i type the host name rather than the ip. how can i get it so that i can actually access my ispconfig control panel?

Please run

/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
and try again.

i tried restarting the whole server, and nothing happened. i couldn't do that line b/c it said that the directory doesn't exist.

This probably means that ISPConfig isn't installed properly. Did you notice any error messages during installation? What are the outputs of

ls -la /root/ispconfig

ls -la /home/admispconfig

df -h

There are some directories missing in /root/ispconfig. I suggest you install ISPConfig again. Make sure that SELinux is disabled.

ok, deleting it and reinstalling worked. i can now access the :81 control panel. thanks for all your help.
