    Hello all, this vps has new freshly installed Debian 7 OS. I try to install ispconfig from this thread: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-wheezy-apache2-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3-p3 on it but failed. The problem is with mysql.

    Code:
    [email protected]:/# apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d dovecot-mysql dovecot-sieve sudo

    I found another post with same problem as mine. The OS is new Debian OS >> http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?p=316744 but solution #3 does not look possible because I don't have previous my.cnf file.

    Please help me with this. Thanks in advance.

    Hos much ram does this vps has? It can bee that mysql ran out of ram during installation.

    3 gb. Previously I install on this same vps with Debian 7 but no problem with mysql. For some reason I got this problem after I reinstall. Maybe updated debian 7 image I think, not the same with previous debian 7.

    I did not had this problem with debian 7 yet. It seems somehow as if the base debian image is broken as apt is not able to initialze the frontent to query you for the mysql password.

    please try:

    apt-get install dialog

    and then run:

    apt-get install --reinstall postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d dovecot-mysql dovecot-sieve sudo

    OK so I try to google certain error keyword such as this :
    Code:
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server-5.5.postinst: line 146: logger: command not found
    https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=cr&e....5.postinst line 146 logger command not found

    Interesting enough I found same errors on Debian and Ubuntu OS starting from July. This guy had the same problem as me : http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=116202 but unfortunately he leaves me hanging.

    So scrolling further down I found a Russian article https://translate.google.com/transl...eshenie-oshibki-logger-command-not-found.html with the same error code:

    I translate it to English and use the solution:

    and mysql problem is solved. Apparently
    Code:
    apt-get install bsdutils
    is essential for Debian but missing from my freshly installed OS.

    Thanks everyone and Till :D

    Worked for me!

    This finally resolved the same issue for me! VPS bare-bones install was missing bsdutils. Thanks!
