1) Did you create the mysql db for ispconfig manually or was it created by the installer?
2) Did you install the ispconfig sql dump manually or was it installed by the installer automatically?
3) Did you use the mysql root user to install ispconfig?
4) Does your mysql password contain any special chars?

Yes, this is causing the problem. Please do not use special chars like $ and ( in the password as they might get interpreted by the shell script that installs ispconfig.

ok thanks for that because now that i remember my current server passwd has a simple password. Will i be able to change a config file in ispconfig now and change my root password? Or would it be best to start over?

I think you will have to reinstall ispconfig as the database was not installed correctly and changing the password just in ISPConfig wont fix it. Please run:

/root/ispconfig/uninstall

then change your mysql root password e.g. with the "mysqladmin" command and then reinstall ispconfig.
