    Hello all. Below is a screenshot I just made. As you can see the ispconfig installation was about to be finished (after 4 earlier tries that failed) and at the exact same moment I wanted to enter the correct mysql information my girlfriend "accidentally" pulls the wrong power cable out. Instead of her laptops adapter she pulled the one from my new server.
    Now before I'm going to make sure that she will have a very slow and painful death I wanted to ask you guys what I should do now... Start the installation all over again? Or is there a way that I can pick it up? Perhaps enter the mysql user & pass in some file? I wouldn'd enjoy to go through the installation for a sixth time so I would appreciate it if anybody can help me with this matter.

    You will have to start again. When you use a program like "screen" in your SSH session, you can proceed a ssh session when the connection was broken.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that...
    It's not possible to continue a session when the server's power was cut off suddenly is it?

    No not when the power was cut, but when you use "screen" and if for some reason you lost the connection to the server,
    screen will still be running, and you can "reconnect" to it.
