    Also i think that the following is interesting

    --

    [root@localhost /]# mysql -u root -p

    mysql> SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE 'socket';

    | Variable_name | Value |

    You can try to create a symlink from /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock to /tmp/mysql.sock, or you change the location of the MySQL socket in your my.cnf.

    ERROR: Stopped: Database already contains some tables.

    Also i want to mention that i need ispconfig to control my webserver (lamp) , mainly apache's virtual hosts , at least for now.

    This means that the database that you use already exists and contains database tables. make sure that the database name that you specify in the ispconfig installer does not exist.

    Your server enviroment has not all required software installed, Please configure your server exactly as descibed in the perfect setup guide before you install ISPConfig.

    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    I use fedora 11 (kernel linux 2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i585), not the server edition. That's why i didn't followed the guide word by word.

    Fedora 11 is not supported by iSPConfig as not all required software like courier can be compiled on fedora 11 as the fordora project has changed their glib to an incompatible version were many projects will not compile on without modifications of the source code.

    Thank you. So i should forget ispconfig ...?

    The problem is in fedora 11 and not in ISPConfig. ISPConfig itself works perfectly on any fedora version, but as long as system requirements like courier /which is a very widely used imap server) can not be compiled on fedora 11, you can not install ISPConfig.

    Fedora 11 is not a good choice for a server as it tends to break setups from time to time as they try to use only bleeding edge software which is a bad strategy for a server. To run a server, better use e.g. centos which is a clone of rhel and which is made to run servers.
