    Installed Perfect Server for Hardy Heron 8.04 from this guide:
    Installed ISP Config from this guide:
    Now when I access the ISPConfig page from i can't get past the login page without a "ERROR 101: wrong username or password." when I try to enter the default admin admin
    Same thing from localhost:81
    I can't access the page with the recommended (which is the default host name and domain used for the install).
    I have tried to reinstall over the initial installation which only made it worse because then I couldn't even browse to the login page.
    I uninstalled ISPConfig and reinstalled with the original resulting error message.
    The only thing I know I missed is in the last section of the ISPConfig guide when it advises the proper course of action for dealing with quota, the referenced "/home" file does not exist in my copy of /etc/fstab so I am not able to apply the advised edit.

    netstat -tap output

    I checked my file but don't see anything obvious in there.

    hosts file: localhost.localdomain localhost server1
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    I'm almost positive that something of this nature must be a simple fix - something I've missed along the way.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'm on a very steep learning curve here.

    Did you see any errors during ISPConfig installation?
    Can you check (e.g. with phpMyAdmin) that the ISPConfig database exists and that it is not empty?

    Thanks for the quick reply falko. I don't recall seeing any errors during install. I also don't see any sign of an ISPConfig database when I use phpMyAdmin. Admittedly, I'm not sure if I'm looking in the correct place though.

    Ok, that's a big problem. What's the output of
    df -h
    Do you see any warnings/errors in the ISPConfig installation log in the /var/log directory?

    Ok, there really was a problem with the database during installation, but I can't say why. At least disk space was no issue...
