I'm not sure if it means anything but after this error when I do ls -l in the current directory its all gone.... tar.gz file is gone and the /root/ispconfig folder is gone as well.....
Thts is ok, the installer has to remove a failed setup.
Please post the output of:
Also, did you enter the install_ispconfig directory with the cd command before you execute the setup script? In which directory did you unpack and run the installer? /root/ispconfig will not work, you must unpack and start it from /tmp or another directory that is not /root/ispconfig or /home/admispconfig.
