    Hi I am trying to log into the phpadmin tool using the portal. I have tried logging in as the global admin, site admin and web site user.. ie (admin) (user) and (web6_user) and all it comes back with is wrong username or password. I can log into the portal using any of these accounts and that works, but not when I try and log into phpadmin tool.

    All the accounts have got rights/options ticked to be able to use everything except for SSL, anon ftp, wap and ind error pages.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction.

    Ok one update I have logged in as the mysql root user... and that works fine...

    So how would a user login into phpadmin if they wanted to use/setup databases.

    I dont ignore you ;)

    After you created a website, you can add mysql databases on the options tab of the website. There you enter a password and ISPConfig displays you the database name and user. With this login information, your customers will be able to log into phpmyadmin.

    Great, got that working... now there is another problem.... this is what I have

    web4_user >

    Creates a database

    web4_u2 (with password)

    Now I want to import a text file 450MB... this cant be done through the phpadmin page, so I need to log into shell and run a command line to do this.

    If I log in as web4_user I cant see the database when I do >mysql and then select database();

    And I cant login as web4_us.... so what am I doing wrong. (I am using putty)

    it seems you mix up system and database users.

    1) Login with SSH with your sytem user.
    2) execute the mysql command with the parameters:

    mysql -u web4_u2 -p web4_db2

    and you are logged into the database. The password you are asked for is the database password.

    That works fine... excellent....

    If I wanted to import a file (text file 450MB) and I use the command line to do it, where would sql look for the file (default place) I read that it should be the home directory, so from ssh where would I put the file. Would you just ftp it to the directory you are in after logging in via ssh.

    The syntax to import a SQL file is:

    mysql -u web4_u2 -p web4_db2 < /path/to/yourfile.sql
