    Hi guys

    I am having some issues with the installation of ISPConfig. The system that I am running is Debian and this is the error that I am getting during the install.

    checking lex output file root... ./configure: line 2422: lex: command not found
    configure: error: cannot find output from lex; giving up
    ERROR: Could not configure PHP

    I am running php4 as can be seen below.

    ii php4 4.4.0-4 server-side, HTML-embedded scripting languag
    ii php4-cgi 4.4.0-4 server-side, HTML-embedded scripting languag
    ii php4-cli 4.4.0-4 command-line interpreter for the php4 script
    ii php4-common 4.4.0-4 Common files for packages built from the php
    ii php4-mcrypt 4.3.10-2 MCrypt module for php4
    ii php4-mysql 4.4.0-4 MySQL module for php4

    Try to install flex:
    apt-get install flex
    Then delete the current binstall_ispconfig directory and try to install again.
    Did you have a look here: It gives some hints how to install/configure Debian Sarge in order to prepare the system for ISPConfig.

    I have tried doing the apt-get install flex again but it is already installed. Any other ideas, is it maybe worth removing php totally and restarting it that way as well. I am really keen to get this setup now.... :)
