    In working through the ISPCONFIG manual for setting up a two-server mirror on page 49 I hit a snag..

    when I restart the MySQL server module on server 1, I get an error msg "Job Failed to start"

    I'm a relative newbie so please forgive my simplistic questions.

    Which debian version do you use?

    [edit] sorry, did not see that you had the os version in the title.

    Which mysql version do you have installed on that server? The mysql version which is used on debian in the manual is < 5.5. If you use mysql 5.5 or newer, then the mysql master/master mirror configuration is different as far as I know as mysql changed the way it is configured.

    I fear that the current mirror guide will not work with that mysql version. We are working on a updated guide, but it is not finished yet.

    just a hint, this should be easy to fix (did it some days ago).
    The main difference is that MySQL dropped some configuration options from the my.cnf (master_host, master_user,...)

    So instead you need to set this values with a SQL command (and MySQL writes these to a new config file called master.info):

    mysql -u root –p
