So mysql is running. That is good.
Now since it complained about restarting via the old /etc/init.d script, go ahead and restart it.

service mysql restart
Now make sure that you can connect to mysql as root.

mysql -u root -p
If you have specified a root password when installing mysql, enter it now, and should be connected to mysql and your prompt should be looking like this:


And then Enter, and you should be disconnected from myql.

Now you have verified that mysql is running and your mysql root password works, run the install script again for ISP Config.

Note: Password for mysql root is not necessarily the same password for your Linux root, and not recommended to be the same. Make sure it is a strong password.

If you are getting errors like
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

After you provide the password when you try to connect to mysql, please let me know, at that point, we need to reset/specify your mysql root password.
