I HAVE TO create a user, since the current MySQL root user DOES NOT HAVE privileges from a remote host, only localhost.
Since our ISPConfig installation is on a different physical server, I have to arrange the privileges for it's IP address.
I DID NOT manually create any database, the installer did. However, it was unable to go any further, for a reason unknown.
Has anyone succeeded installing ISPConfig with MySQL on a different server (not localhost)?
