    Hello there,

    I am trying to set up a multiple server setup.

    1. I have completed the tutorial for debian lenny on the master server
    2. I have installed evrything with th edebian lenny tutorial, but when i want to install ISPConfig3 i choose expert mode and i get stuck at this point:

    Shall this server join an existing ISPConfig multiserver setup (y,n) [n]: y

    MySQL master server hostname []:
    MySQL master server root username [root]:
    MySQL master server root password []: password
    MySQL master server database name [dbispconfig]:

    Unable to connect to mysql server
    MySQL master server hostname []:

    I have been googling for hours, but i can't find the sollution.
    Can somebody help me? Thanks.

    try if you can connectt to the master-server

    this is NOT a problem of ispconfig, it is a problem of your mysql-installation.

    please open a shell an server #2 and try to connect to your db at server #1


    mysql -h <<your master-server>>

    for example

    mysql -h

    if you get a Access denied then it works! (your did not get a connection without user and pwd, but the connection itself is ok.)

    if you get a "counld not connect to host..." then you don't have the right to connect from server #2 to server #1.

    then install phpmyadmin at server #1, log in to your db and add a user "root" and the IP (use the ip!) of server #2.

    then try the connection again.

    if this works, then the multiserveer-setup works fine too!

    another question can someone tell me how to configure the 2 nameservers?

    The second server i have installed needs to be the second nameserver.

    i want this: - -

    is this easy to fix?

    And do the 2 servers work with eachother? they copy evrything between the servers?
