    Hi all. I posted earlier on a problem I was having and I think I found the real issue. Under "show services" I get "My-SQL Server offline" and "SMTP-Mail server offline"

    When the services first try to start, this is the first error message
    "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'"

    my.cnf is pointing it to path above, but there is no mysqld.sock there... neither is the PID. I followed the tutorial (Perfect Server Debian 5.0 ISPConfig 3) I thought to a tee, went back over it and saw no mention of these files. What am I missing?

    Thes efiles are created by debian automatically and not ispconfig. Seems as your mysql install is a bit broken. You should try to reinstall mysql.
