    I was installing ISPConfig3. I was able to complete all of the required
    steps until I actually start to install ispconfig from install.php file.
    When I type in the command "php -q install.php" it gives me the following

    which: no apache in

    also I get the same error repeated with the following in the place of
    "apache" and the same paths as mentioned above
    apache2, httpd, couriertcpd, saslauthd, amavisd-new, jk_chrootsh.

    when I continue with the installation it lets me enter the necessary
    information then it installs it but gives me the following error.

    PHP Warning: call-time pass-by-referance has been deprecated; If you would
    like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of fsockopen(). if you
    would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set
    allow_call-time_pass_reference to true in your INI files in
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/mods-available/ on
    line 1236
    this message is repeated again and then it is repeated twice again with the
    line number 1248

    when I restart my computer it shows an error on xconsole saying "error
    connecting to MySQL server at localhost: can't connect to local MySQL server
    through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) (errno=2)

    I have zero clue what's going on.

    This means that you dont have apache installed and some other deamons like mysql are missing too. Please follow exactly the installation instructions for ispconfig 3 which can be found in the ispconfig3 tar.gz file to prepare your server befor you try to install ispconfig 3.

    Thanks a lot for taking time to help me out.
    As you mentioned I have installed all those mentioned missing stuff. When i look for the status of them they indicate as "Running". So I doubt that it is the problem.
    However when I installed pam_mysql and tried to setup the password as mentioned in the tutorial, it gave me some error.
    when i typed in "mysqladmin -u root password mypassword" and "mysqladmin -h ispconfig.local -root password mypassword" it gave me an error saying cannot connect.
    Does this have to do anything with the above mentioned?
    Do you happen to know a better tutorial than the Installation Instruction document provided with ISPConfig 3 by any chance?

    No. The installation instructions are complete and correct, they include every nescessary step.
