    There is never a reinstall nescessary for such a issue, so dont reinstall.

    About which password are you talking, the ispconfig admin password in the web interface or your ssh root password?

    Btw. Please post ispconfig questions in the ispconfig forum :)

    The most likely reason is that mysql is not started. Please logon on the shell and start mysql and try to login in ispconfig again. If that helps, then ensure that your mysql daemon starts at boot, this is the case by default but might have been disabled on your server.

    Are you able to login to mysql with e.g. phpmyadmin with the mysql login details (username and password) from file /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/config.inc.php ?

    Ok, so the cause of the problem is the mysql login.

    Check with:

    ps a-ux | grep mysql

    if mysql is running after you started it.

    Then take alook the the apache error.log file for errors and at the syslog file for apache or mysql errors.

    Which Linux distribution do you use?
    Are there no errors in /var/log/syslog when you restart mysql?

    Ok.On thentos the log files are name ddifferently. Please check the file /var/log/messages and if there are any mysql related logs in /var/log, then check these too.

    i have tried all the commands to rectify and run mysql server
    but error is there mysql server failed to start
    as it was fine with zpanel and directadmin when i used them but as i installed ispconfig3 its not working
    does any other setup needed for ispconfig3?
    always after restart mysql never run for ispconfig3

    at the step

    where it ask for
    host
    user
    password
    create db

    does there need some other things
    at host i putted local host
    user would be root password left blank db is putted with any name
    could you tell something missing there?

    There is no special setup needed for ispconfig and ispconfig uses the mysql package of the linux distribution and ispconfig does not alter any mysql config files during setup so the reason that mysql does not start is most likely not related to ispconfig.

    Which Tutorial did you use to install ispconfig and was this a fresh (empty) server before you installed it?

    The hostname is "localhost" (in one word), the username is "root" and the password is the root password of your myqsl installation, you should never use a empty root password, but thats for security reasons only and will not cause mysql start to fail.

    The ispconfig manual contains a multiserver guide for debian Linux which is a special case and usage scenario. The debian guide can not be used for a centos server as the package names differ.

    We provide many different centos guides (http://www.ispconfig.org/ispconfig-3/documentation/), please specify which exact guide (URL to the document) you used to install your server and ensure that you followed the guide to the letter to prepare your server for ispconfig (e.g. that you insalled all required services like apache, postfix, pure-ftpd, amavisd, clamav, dovecot or courier etc.). If you dont install everything described in the guide before you install ispconfig, then ispconfig can not work as there are no services that can be configured.
