i am trying your out of the box ISPconfig installation on FC4 as a server. So far i have got the server setup and is purring like a happy cat - at least i think it is. my problem comes when i install ISPconfig. it goes through the procedures quite well until it asks for: * mysql server: localhost - per your example. should i change it? where do i get the info from? * mysql user: root * mysql password: rootpassword * ISPconfig database: ispconfigdb - per your example * ISPconfig ip address: 127.0.0.1 - as it is localhost. can i change this? do i have to setup another ip address for this? if so how? * host name: here is a part of my problem - when i set up fc4 i set the host name as ak.travel.co.za. do i insert that here? * domain: more of my problems. what do i put in here? where do i get the info? * ISPconfig protocol: can't get here yet - if anything goes wrong here i will be in contact. if you can help- me on this i would be very happy.
