Default install fails, debian etch 4.0

Hi there, been using these how-to's for ages now with great success...until now.

trying to get ISPconfig working on my friends VPS, using debian etch. i follow the debian etch guide to the T, but when it gets pretty far into the install process it fails with this being the last few lines.

./setup2: line 862: ispconfig_tmp/php/bin/php: No such file or directory
ERROR: The PHP binary coming with ISPConfig does not work properly on your system! The installation routine stops here!

last i tried ispconfig was about a year ago with debian sarge, and it worked perfectly back then so not too sure what the problem is here... any help greatly appreciated.

Edo

From which directory did you try to install ISPConfig?
What's the output of
Code:
df -h
?

there are a few error's relating to not being able to find binaries of spamassin and clamav i think (though its not apparently needed i thought?) . and there is plenty of free disk space, around 5.5gb to be exact. it's a fresh install, with just debian minimal and then followed the usual guide

installing it from /root/ , should it be somewhere else?

these are some errors
Code:
mv: cannot stat `binaries/aps.tar.gz': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `binaries/spamassassin.tar.gz': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `binaries/uudeview.tar.gz': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `binaries/clamav.tar.gz': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `binaries/cronolog': No such file or directory

hmmm i installed it from another users directory, and it has worked...they should really mention something about that in the install doc's (and maybe in the how-to from here itself?)

You can install ISPConfig from any directory except /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig.

I have the same problem... I tried to upgrade from the same directory as I installed ver 2.2.3 (/root/) and got the php error. I tried again from another dir /ISP/ but with the same result. Here is the error during the install:

Not sure why it is trying to configure Apache 1.3.37, when Apache2 is installed on the previous version...
Code:

You can not install ISPConfig from within the /root/ispconfig directory. Please unpack the installer in /tmp and run it from there.

I have tried from several locations /tmp /var/tmp I even created a own /ISP but they all end up with the same error as listed in my previous post.

Any ideas why this happens?

I had been using 2.2.3 for some time now, and wanted to upgrade... seems the upgrade didnt go so well. Will I have to redo all the setup (mysql, websites etc.) once I get the complete install to work?

I am also unable to start apache2 at this point. Something about no pid file i suspect.

Please help....

A quick note to everyone who reads this thread. Do not install ISPConfig from within the /home/adminispconfig/ directory, you will get most likely errors as ISPConfig overwrites this directory during setup and the setup might be incomplete or files are missing / corrupted.
