Problems with default log in after installation

    I'm having problems logging in straight after a fresh installation. The guide I followed was this for Ubuntu 14.04

    I get the ISP landing page correctly but for some reason the default username admin and password admin isn't working for me correctly.

    Username or Password empty.

    Doing a bit of a search this seems to be a problem with a php configuration referencing the SQL db but I can't narrow it down. Anyone experienced this before? Any ideas on where to go looking in the config to try resolve this?

    I used the verfication script at the end of the tutorial to verify the install and it did throw back saying php-auth and php-pear weren't there but I checked and they are.
    You missed to install these packages
    You need to install these packages. To install these packages you need to run the command apt-get install package_name
    You can cross check the particular installation as follows:
    dpkg -l | grep package_name | cut -d ' ' -f3
    [email protected]:~$ dpkg -l | grep php-auth | cut -d ' ' -f3
    [email protected]:~$ dpkg -l | grep php-pear | cut -d ' ' -f3

    PLease check the file /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/ Does the mysql server hostname is "localhost"?

    I'm not using a local MySQL server for the DB but a central MySQL server. The file does contain the MySQL server information though
    $conf['db_type'] = 'mysql';
    $conf['db_host'] = '';
    $conf['db_database'] = 'dbispconfig';
    $conf['db_user'] = 'ispconfig';
    $conf['db_password'] = '****************';
    $conf['db_charset'] = 'utf8'; // same charset as html-charset - (HTML --> MYSQL: "utf-8" --> "utf8", "iso-8859-1" --> "latin1")
    $conf['db_new_link'] = false;
    $conf['db_client_flags'] = 0;

    ISPConfig uses mysql as fast config cache, thats why it should be installed on each host as ispconfig takes care on replicating mysql data between the nodes in a multiserver system automatically. A installation with an external database server is possible when you twek some settings manually, but is neither tested nor supported.

    Ok that's fair enough. I was trying to avail of our already in place backup system for MySQL and reduce the load on the VM where ISPConfig is running. I will re-install using a local MySQL server and might switch to the Nginx configuration

    Thanks for the reply
