The problem is that /var/www is owned by www-data, but you're logged in a admin. Open /etc/passwd and change admin's homedir from /home/admin to /var/www and run
chown admin /var/www
and it should work.

No, not correct. You can install ISPConfig from any directory (e.g. /home/admin, /tmp, etc.) except /root/ispconfig. You can use WinSCP ( ) to upload your copy of ISPConfig to the server.
