Hey, I try to install Ispconfig on a Debian Etch server (1&1 cloud). Therefore I use the installation guide http://www.ispconfig.org/docs/INSTALL_DEBIAN_4.0.txt. Very early I get the MySQL-Error I guess that there is a really easy solution. I just can't see it. Here are my steps: /etc/hostname: Code: blabla /etc/hosts: Code: 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 212.227.XXX.YYY blabla.onlinehome-server.info blabla 212.227.XXX.YYY blabla.online.de ...done Code: mysqladmin -u root password myrootsqlpassword ...works Code: mysqladmin -h blabla.local -u root password myrrootsqlpassword ...throws the described error. Any idea?
