Default DB port @ KnowledgeTree Document Management System On Ubuntu 7.10 Server

When I came to the point:

"DB Port

Please enter the port for your MySQL database.

MySQL database Port [3306]:

Warning: Unable to bind to the given port number. Please select another one.
Press [Enter] to continue : "

I was unable to continue with installation because default <enter> neither 3306 were not accepted. I checked it up, and MySQL is indeed using 3306 port. It is a default port and it's been in use for other databases.

I'v tried before an always the same result.
Any idea?

Maybe I misunderstood, but are you trying to use this guide to install KnowledgeTree on a server that already has MySQL installed? If so, it won't work as the stack installer contains its own instance of MySQL.

Try the following command to see if your server reports MySQL already running.

netstat -tlnp | grep 3306

If it is, you will probably see output like this:

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 4514/mysqld
