    Hello, I followed the guide located on to install ISPconfig, however for some reason when I type the command to start or stop myDNS, i get the follwoing error:

    robert@robert-laptop:~$ /etc/init.d/mydns start
    Starting DNS server: mydnsmydns[31769]: error loading gid for group `nobody'
    mydns[31769]: using gid 65534 from user `nobody'
    mydns[31769]: Error connecting to MySQL server at localhost: Access denied for user 'username'@'localhost' (using password: YES) (errno=0)
    The strange thing is, if I edit /etc/init.d/mydns.conf, it does not reflect in the error message.

    Can someone please help me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    Please install ISPConfig before you start mydns as mydns is not configured before ispconfig is installed.

    The config does not has to be edited manually, it is written by the installer.

    1) Download the latest ispconfig 2 release and unpack it.
    2) run the uninstall.php script which is in the install folder.
    3) Mkae sure that the ispconfig mysql database is deleted.
    4) Reinstall ispconfig, make sure that you use the mysql root user to install it and no other mysql user.
