Either you did not configure the /etc/hosts files on all servers as decribed in the multiserver installation guide or you did not add the mysql root user for IP and hostname in the master database as described in the multiserver install guide.


if so
can someone please explain step by step with examples of what there entering.. would def help me out alot..
Thats described in detail in the multiserver installation guides like this one:

sorry didn't notice the guide on multi-server setup..

i believe both mentioned, are my problem.

i only added server 1, to the host file
since i originally only had installed one server with panel..

server 2, hasn't been added to the mysql or host file..

thanks for link.

going back to the drawing board..

ill make changes to my systems following the guide.

will post if i get it running..

thanks again for taking the time out to help
and for the fast response...

added both servers ips, to host file..
vi /etc/hosts looks like localhost

added server 2 to the main servers mysql.. (not sure if this is correct?) root *xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx root *xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

server 1 is already entered in mysql, with the ISPconfig3 Install.

still receiving the same error..
Unable to connect to mysql server

am i entering it correctly?

Please check if you edited the mysql my.cnf file so that mysql listens on all interfaces as described in the guide and that you dont block the mysql port with a firewall.

sorry for the noobish questions...

just wanted to make sure, before plunging and touching the master server that was already live..

thanks again for the snappy responses...
