Use the Installation/Configuration forum under ISPConfig!
Maybe you need your moderators to start moving posts around. Sorry for that, I'll post in the right place next time
That's what we're already doing...
I have nearly committed this same error because I find the setup a bit confusing. Also, the ISPconfig forum options bring you into this forum too which adds to the confusion of where your are and what to do for a new user.
Just my observations. But the help I get here is great!
I'm genuinely sorry, I recently made an ISPconfig thread in this forum, I thought I made the thread in the ISPconfig forum. Could a mod move the thread please?
Sorry, should I repost in that area ? My problem is with MySQL password....
If your problem is related to ISPConfig, post it in the ISPConfig forum, otherwise here. If I think you posted it in the wrong forum I will move it to the right one, so don't be afraid of posting in the wrong forum.
yea, forgive me I were confused, greetings.
Sorry bout that...
I posted before seeing your post concerning the ISPConfig forum. I apologize for any inconvenience... thanks for everything.

a noob needs help installing XP/ ubuntu as a dual boot
Hello everyone. I am hoping someone can give me some help installing Ubuntu.
quick background: I just bought a laptop in Korea, (fujisu Lifebook A) it came with 'windows vista basic k' (windows in Korean, which i do not speak) after using vista for 2 hours, i realized that it HAD to go. So i downloaded Ubuntu, installed it, and it worked PERFECTLY. I was very happy with it. It even found drivers for all of my hardware automatically. it was great.
but I need WinXP for work, so a dual boot setup would be perfect for me.
this is where I am running into troubble.
My HD is 100gig, and when i first installed ubuntu, it partitioned my HD into 4 partitions. 2 main partitions, 44gig and 46gigs , and 2 smaller ones (for swap files i imagine) I'm not sure why, but thats what ubuntu did by default.
When I installed WinXP, it was installed onto the main partition, and I lost ubuntu, and XP can only see that one 46gig partiton, it can't see the rest of the hard drive.
when I try to re-install Ubuntu, it doens't see the partitions either, the only option it gives me when i try to install it is to repartition the entire HD into one 100 gig partition. there is no 'partition free space' option that i have seen on every website describing how to setup a dual boot system, and if i try to make one, it warns me that eveything on the existing partitions will be lost.
so, what should i do?
its a fresh XP install, without anything important, so i am not opposed to formatting everything and starting over if thats the only way.
more info if it helps:
AMD sempron(sp?) processor, single core, it says it's 64 bit...
1.6 ghz processor
ATI video card and graphics accelerator.
100 gig HD
1 gig ram
Have you already created a free partition where you can install Ubuntu on, or is there just one big partition with Windows? In the latter case, I'd use option one to resize the Windows partition and create a new Linux partition.
I'm embarrassed to have to ask , but I'm old and slow and don't know anything about windows, let alone linux - I am trying to install ubuntu 7.04 and I can't get Java installed (page 4 -install additional programs).
Now I am up to page 9 :

9 Install Automatix
Automatix2 comes with a graphical interface, but in order to install Automatix2 there are a few steps we have to do on the command line. Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal to open a command line window.
In the command line window, type in the following commands to install Automatix:
echo "deb http://www.getautomatix.com/apt feisty main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
You might have to provide your password. Afterwards, run.
OK.I type this line (well, paste it) and It does ask for password but I am unable to enter anything at all. Hit the keys and nothing will enter.
Please, can you tell me how I enter password when asked? (and what is run?)
yes, I'm really That bad. Sorry. Appreciate any help, thanks.
It's normal that the cursor doesn't move when you type in a password. Simply type it in and hit ENTER.
Heh... yes, thanks. I actually found this buried in the rootsudo documentation page about 2 in the morning (couldn't sleep wondering what I was doing wrong) :
"Your password will not be shown on the screen as you type it, not even as a row of stars (******). It is being entered with each keystroke!"
That is a wee bit confusing to us windows refugees who type with 2 fingers!
Sincere thanks for your advice.
Your instruction pages are very plain and easy to follow, but
I still can't get java enabled from your instructions page 4.
I have tried the java page for further advice:https://jdk-distros.dev.java.net/ubuntu.html
I get to step 9 and 10 there:#
#9 To integrate the Sun Java Plug-in with web browsers like Firefox open a terminal window (Applications | Accessories | Terminal) and type the following:
#10. After the installation is complete you can (re-)start the Firefox browser and enter the URL "aboutlugins" to verify that the Java Plug-in has been installed
( Note: for the JRE JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/jre ):
I have re-booted machine, installed all updates and it says all the java files are enabled, but when I try to load a page it won't display. Gives me message at the bottom of blank page:
Loading java applet failed...
Please can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
Sorry to clutter this thread.
I have made some progress - I tried the page I was trying to access using my win-duh-ose machine and I could not load it either, so checked a few other pages and found that using Ubuntu I can get some of the pages that I can get with windows, but not all??
eg. this page:
loads fine with win2000 but is giving me message: Loading Java Applet Failed... when I try with Ubuntu.
But this page: http://quote2.fxtrek.com/misc/fxcm2.asp
loads with both win and Ubuntu
