    I recall when I did the autoinstaller a reminder to delete a file which contains the mysql and ispconfig username and passwords.

    Could you please remind me which file this is to delete ?

    I do not remember having to delete files after autoinstaller. Maybe you are confused by this statement the installer prints:
    When the installer is finished it will show you the ISPConfig admin and MySQL root password like this:
    [INFO] Your ISPConfig admin password is: 5GvfSSSYsdfdYC
    [INFO] Your MySQL root password is: kkAkft82d!kafMwqxdtYs
    Make sure you write this information down, as you will need them later.
    You can read the instructions here:

    Hi Taleman,
    There was defiinitely a note suggesting to delete a file due to security, because it contains the above passwords.

    That's correct. I can't remember the line but it should be kept somewhere in temp folder which means it would normally be deleted upon system reboot. But I could be wrong too. :D

    It is in the /tmp folder, which is usually cleared when rebooting.
