Hi, 5. Is there others that have problems doing what I am trying to? Shouldn't it be possible on Ubuntu when it is on debian? If this is the case, I've got a serious problem.. I'm not good enough to find new solutions, was only trying this because of the guide in the ISPconfig3 Manual... 5.1 Maybe I misunderstood you, but please explain or make an example regarding: "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" from the section [mysqld] "commenting out the conflicting" - I added the text as shown above, but what is to be "commented out"? 5.2 "/etc/mysql/my.cnf": master-user = slaveuser (ok? no change in this line) master-password = slave_user_password (am I suppose to enter the password here, doesn't think so, but I'm not sure) 5.3 Do you know how to remove this swap file: E325: ATTENTION Found a swap file by the name "/etc/mysql/.my.cnf.swp" owned by: root dated: Tue Jul 23 15:21:45 2013 file name: /etc/mysql/my.cnf modified: YES user name: root host name: server1.ispserver.tld process ID: 21658 While opening file "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" dated: Tue Jul 23 16:07:38 2013 NEWER than swap file! (1) Another program may be editing the same file. If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two different instances of the same file when making changes. Quit, or continue with caution. (2) An edit session for this file crashed. If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /etc/mysql/my.cnf" to recover the changes (see ":help recovery"). If you did this already, delete the swap file "/etc/mysql/.my.cnf.swp" to avoid this message. Swap file "/etc/mysql/.my.cnf.swp" already exists!
