All, I have read and re-read all the posts that pertain to this problem and no solutions see applicable to my situation. Being new to Linux and ISPconfig, I want to be able to understand what my problems are and what the solutions would be. So here is a little background on what I have done. I am following Falko's perfect server web page using Ubuntu 7.10. The server is up and running and there were know problems with the install. I followed the ISPConfig directions and all went well: The program complied correctly up to the interface with MySQL. I have re-read all the directions concerning MySQL and even browsed the forums there. Many of the posts here seem to fade once someone finds a solution and that is disappointing. So I guess I am looking for an instructor who can guide me in fixing my problem. Here is a copy of the last few lines of code copied from the Putty Screen: Connected successfully to MySQL server ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) no crontab for root Restarting some services... * Stopping Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix [ OK ] * Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix [ OK ] * Stopping ftp server proftpd [ OK ] * Starting ftp server proftpd [ OK ] Starting ISPConfig system... /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd started Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/config.inc.php on line 47 No results found!ISPConfig system is now up and running!

Please help, I am sure I have done something wrong. Thanks in advance for all your help.
