    Does anyone know of any workarounds to get the ISPConfig installer to run on CentOS v4.3 ?

    You can try this:

    1) Make a backup of the file /etc/redhat-release
    2) Edit /etc/redhat-release and set the version number to centos 4.2
    3) Run the ISPConfig setup
    4) Restore your backup of the file /etc/redhat-release

    I made the change to the redhat-release file, and ran the setup again until I ran into this:

    ########## WEB SERVER ##########

    Checking for program httpd...
    Checking the syntax of the httpd.conf...
    Syntax OK
    The syntax is ok!

    ########## INSTALLATION ##########

    ERROR: MySQL is not running! Please start your MySQL database and run the ISPConfig setup again.


    I then did:

    service mysqld start
    Starting MySQL: [ OK ]
    service mysqld status
    mysqld (pid 24427) is running...


    I tried running the ISPSetup again, and got the same MySQL is not running error again.

    When I check the status of the mysqld service, I get:

    mysqld dead but subsys locked

    I removed mysqld, and re-installed it and I was able to get further with the ISPConfig.

    Now I am stuck at the following error :

    ERROR: The PHP binary coming with ISPConfig does not work properly on your system! The installation routine stops here!

    php -v

    I tried adding the mysql-devel packages -- still no luck

    I installed zlib and got much further through the installation until I got:

    tar: aps.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

    What about CentOS 3.5

    Hello All
    Is there any chance of hacking it to work with CentOS 3.5 ? :confused: ?

    now ISPconfig works on centos 4.3

    Hi All,

    I just got ISPconfig working with centos 4.3 and this is what I did:

    after installing 4.3 , login as root

    edit /etc/redhat-release file and change 4.3 to 4.2 ( thanks Falko)

    Install zlib as both user --shared and user

    stop mysqld
    start mysqld
    install ISPconfig

    change /etc/redhat-release 4.2 to 4.3

    Good Luck

    Hello falko
    thank you for the quick reply
    It actually worked, but then I got into this one:

    ########## WEB SERVER ##########
    which: no httpd in (/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/libexec)

    Should I have used the "advanced mode" ?

    Either you do not have an apache webserver installed or the apache binary has an uncommon name or is not in your path "/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/libexec".
