    So, how the root user and system user that you set up in the perfect setup...I would like to change those passwords routinely. How do I do it and does it affect my installation of ISPConfig at all?

    You can do it by running
    Code:
    passwd [I]username[/I]
    It does not affect ISPConfig.

    I changed my root password and my main user password. Everything seemed to work fine, but now I can't log in at all...as root or user. PLEASE HELP!!! Could someone have hacked my system with the mysql password?

    After changing the root password mysql should change the old password in file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php in case of change to password of DB ISPconfig.

    Please explain better "I can't get into my server" because if you changed the password the user and wants to access the server via ssh need only use the new password, if you want to access the ispconfig and did not change the password there is no problem.

    I changed my root and user password (that you create for the perfect setup), and now I can't log on using ssh or on the machine itself. I'm worried someone hacked it. ISPConfig works fine and phpMyAdmin, but I can't log on to the machine at all.

    You tried to use the old password?

    If you can not access, then boot with a LiveCD, in rescue mode, mount the partition that contains /etc/passwd in chroot mode and change the password again.
