After reading a tutorial here on transfering a server from one box to another, I have several nuisances which are driving me mad. Let me say 1st that my server is working, ISPConfig is working and Apache2 is working, correctly servering pages. Background: 1st server was Fedora Core 8. 2nd server Debian Etch When dumping the sql dump using command line, it included the mysql database from the first server. I didn't notice this and I imported this dump file using phpmyadmin on the debian box. Well, as you can imgaine, I have issues concerning this. Here is what I am getting: Access denied for user 'debian-sys-maint'@'localhost' (using password: YES) -- This I have been able to fix inserting the user into the new mysql.user table. Now when I try to fix the root user, I get a duplicate key issue. This is my error message: mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)' 2nd issue: When I upload files to my webs, they are issued www-data www-data as file ownership. Can someone please help me fix this? Also, I cannot start/stop/restart services from ISPConfig control panel anymore. NOTE: I have approximately 62 websites on this new box and they are all functioning, so reinstalling the OS/server isn't an option for me.
