    If this is a new installation:

    The problem is that there is already a database with the name "ispconfigdb", so ISPConfig was not able to create it. Please delete the datbase ispconfigdb and the directories /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig and install ispconfig again.

    If this is a update:

    You started the ISPConfig installer more then once without restoring the /root/ispconfig directory. Please run:

    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    and unpack and run the ISPConfig installer again.

    This is a new installation, it has been installed on the computer before however. And when you say delete ispconfigdb you mean through phpmyadmin right? Because i have done that, and it did not work. I suppose that i will try again however. Thank you.

    Also, when should i create the databse? During the installation? Before it? Or not at all, does the installer do that?

    Delete the database by running:

    rm -rf /var/lib/mysql/ispconfigdb

    and make sure that you do not ceate a mysql database with the name ispconfigdb manually, the ispconfig installer will do this for you.

    That would explain why it isn't working.

    Thank you once again Till!
