    1) Which linux distribution do you use?
    2) Did you execute the installer with sudo?

    Thanks, It was the problem. The password contained some special charaters. I changed the password for one without special chars and all went well.
    I have other(s) question: Can i use a database's password with special characters after the instalation of ispconfig? Is possible change the password after instalation? How?

    Thanks again Till:

    You can change the password, but make sure that you put your new password in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/ as well.
