Hey Folks

Just installed ISPconfig and got to the point of telling it the MySQL server.

I get this wehn I enter local host.

Please enter your MySQL server:localhost
The MySQL server you specified cannot be reached!

I can connect to the MySQl with administrator and other programs just not this one

netstat -tap output is

Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 megamultihost.com:61865 *:* LISTEN 5981/wish
tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 7364/mysqld-max

I'd also add localhost.localdomain.

Please restart MySQL. Does
Code:
mysql -h localhost -u root -p
work?

What's the output of
Code:
ping -c2 localhost
? Do you have a firewall that prevents pings? Your firewall must allow pings.
