Default Troubleshooting ISPConfig 3 Multiserver setups.

I hope by showing you my working multiserver setup and explaining what I did that you may be able to troubleshoot why you are having problems.

1. On the primary server I ( installed ISPConfig 3 in standard mode and named the database dbispconfig1. You can leave this as default "dbispconfig" - I changed mine in order to make future database replication easier for myself.

2. Log in to phpmyadmin from your workstation, click on the "PRIVILEGES" tab and select "create new user" .. check all privileges. You should create two of these users temporarily - one for the IP of your second server and one for the hostname of your second server. Remember to delete these users when you have completely finished setting up your second server. You may also need to make a hosts file entry for server2 depending on how your network is set up.

3. On the second server ( I installed ISPConfig 3 in expert mode and answered the questions as follows: ISPConfig3 install log.
