ISPConfig install failure
 
G'day all,

I recently installed ISPConfig on CentOS 4.3 using perfect setup etc. and got it to work first time except when trying to install Joomla on a domain, the Joomla install showed me that there was no MySQL support available. After many late nights looking through forums I decided to reinstall everything. After running through perfect setup, I checked PHP/MySQL support, everything OK. So onto ISPConfig, everything OK. It all seems to install OK however I am unable to bring up the ISPConfig login page. If I hit the IP address of the install I get the Apache/CentOS default page rather than the ISpConfig shared IP page. From this I would assume ISPConfig is not running, however if I stop and start the ISPConfig service it shows as starting.

I have reinstalled 4 times this week and still get the same problem!!
I am very new to this and obviously need some help.

Thanks in advance,

I do not understand what you've done...
 
First:

I think you only had to enable a mySQL database for that website via the basic tab of the site in ISPConfig.
After that, you could click on the options tab and define a database for Joomla.
Via PHPmyAdmin you could drop the MySQL dump (provided by Joomla) into the field for that website.

Second:

(Maybe you've done it, but you're not specific at this point); to enter ispconfig do not point only to http://yourIPaddress/,
but to http://yourIPaddress:81/

Hans,

Thanks for your reply, MySQL was enabled under ISPConfig and MySQL was definately running but no matter what I tried, I could'nt get it to work for Joomla hence the reinstall again and again.

My problem now is the initial web page for ISPConfig and yes I am using https://blah:81.

You can check the install logfile /var/log/install_ispconfig.log if there where any Database inside.

Do you see something wrong...?


You can consider to to this: (i do not know if you have uninstalled ISPConfig before installed it every time)

Uninstall ISPConfig:

Manualy:
rm -rf /root/ispconfig
rm -rf /home/admispconfig

or

Automaticly:
Run: /root/ispconfig/uninstall and select that you want to keep your installation.

Make sure you have a proper backup from your website root (/home/www or /var/www) before you try to reinstall ISPConfig.

Then install ISPConfig again.

I hope it works this time.

Hi,

I am not sure but it looks incomplete for me.
I see nothing like "Connected successfully to MySQL server" and so on...

TheRudy 22nd July 2006 12:31

If he had no mysql then i belive that the installation would not even start.. as mysql is required for ISPConfig..

What kind of Joomla problems? What errors? Did you enter all data correctly? You created database for joomla in ISPConfig?

Do a new installation again of ISPConfig and report back if you can get ISPConfig page or not.. Maybe you missed something while reinstalling..

Edit: btw, you didn't post the whole log of that file.. just first 'page' ;)

Hans 22nd July 2006 12:42

I guess that's what i was missing :)

grimmers 23rd July 2006 14:58

Still no joy
 
I have just done another reinstall of ISPConfig and still have the same problem, no web page. Everything seems to install OK, no errors

Is "no crontab for root" normal?

TheRudy 23rd July 2006 15:10

Your domain name points to your server? Since it looks ok everything about install all i can think of is that you don't have your domain set up correctly..
