Default ISPConfig installation problem. Cannot make OpenSSL

Hey there..

I have a problem. To put it simply, the setup exits with the error, "Could not make OpenSSL"

At first i thought that maybe i had forgotten to install openssl earlier, (according to the "Perfect Fedora Core 4 Setup").

So i did a "yum install openssl" which worked fine.

After deleting the folder that i had extracted from the tarred installation file, i untarred it again, and ran "setup" again.

It exitted with the same error.

Help?

Cheers.

There must be some errors in the output before the line "Could not make OpenSSL". Please post them here.

Thanx mate...

It turns out i didn't have GCC installed! DOH!!! of all the things to forget...

Just did a fresh reinstall u see.. and my GUI installer's got some probs

Anywayz.. i'm just wondering if the absence of GCC also led to another problem earlier..

With the perl console, i couldn't "install DB_File"

prolly gonna try that later..

Cheers... Will update yer...

Default yes

I would say you are correct with that assumption... GCC would be required to 'make'/compile the perl module.

And no worries my friend, I forgot GCC the first time and failed at OpenSSL as well. ;0

Cuz its taking pretty long to setup and if it stops halfway now, i'd die! lol...

ARRGGHH!!!! lol

The install failed halfway last nite because of some missing dependancy called Bison... Darn it...

So i did a Yum Install of Bison... Bison installed OK

And i tried to do my Perl->install DB_File which still failed...

So i tot, what the heck, i might as well forget about that altogether.

So i deleted the isntall_ispconfig folder, reextracted it.. again... and ran SETUP.

ARggh!!! It failed at installing PHP.

Something about a lex command...

So i did yum install lex

apparently, there was no such program.

so i tried yum install flex...
and reran setup... i got up right till the mySQL part.... where i entered the wrong info!! DOH!!!!!!

The installation then stopped..

Anyway i can edit the info i inputted after the fact?

No, you have to delete the install_ispconfig folder, extract it again and run the setup again.

Hm, I guess you didn't follow the "Perfect Setup" for Fedora exactly, because I've never had such problems...

Hey bros...

Reinstalling simply by deleting the ispconfig folder and untarring it again doesn't work.. presumably because my installation(earlier one) stopped too late in the installation... pardon the redundancy...

Is there anyway i can actually start from scratch?

The error I get is:

All prerequisites are fulfilled.
Here we go....

Warning: main(config.inc.php) failed to open stream........
I assume u know the rest...

At the end of it all it says, Congratulations, Your ISPConfig system is now installed... etc....

Heehee... Or shld i just save us all the trouble and just do a reinstall of the entire system and use my newfound knowledge and experience to prevent me from making anymore mistakes.. wahaha....

Cheers guys. and thanx again...
