    hey folks. I was following the instns at this page: http://www.ispconfig.org/manual_installation.htm

    when i got to this part:

    Please enter your MySQL server: E.G. localhost
    Please enter your MySQL user: E.G. root
    Please enter your MySQL password: Your MySQL password
    Please enter a name for the ISPConfig database: E.g. ispconfigdb
    Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: E.g. 192.168.0.1
    Please enter the host name: E.g. www
    Please enter the domain: E.g. xyz.de


    i mistakenly entered the wrong mysql password :D . Anyway, I forget what happened next exactly, except I had to reboot for some reason (i think it was unresponsive after awhile), and I went thru ./setup again, and this time it went through to the very end, saying I had successfully installed it.

    but when I check out http://192.168.1.6:81, I get a blank page (although http://192.168.1.6 results in a dir page, meaning apache's working).

    So basically, I want to go back to that part where I go through the "Please Enter your".... phase, so I can correct all the info.

    Is it saved in some config file somewhere? Where and how do I edit it? Or do I just go through ./setup again? (someone needs to write on the install page that it can take as long as an hour btw).

    Many thanks!!!

    Please make sure that you have neta refresh, header redirects and javascript enabled in your browser. Please try e.g. firefox to get a better error message in case your SSL cert is corrupted.

    A reinstallation is most likely not nescessary.

    im sorry for not being clear. I am using Firefox, the message is:

    Unable to connect
    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 192.168.1.6:81.

    Please run:

    netstat -tap

    and:

    iptables -L

    on your server and post the output.

    I hope you did not run the ISPConfig setup script trough sudo as this wont work. You must run it as root user.

    ISPConfig is not running at all, so I guess the complete setup ISPConfig setup is not ok. In this case, you will have to reinstall ISPConfig.

    1) Switch to the root user:

    sudo -s

    2) Uninstall ISPConfig:

    /root/ispconfig/uninstall

    3) Unpack and install ISPConfig again.

    argg kinda suspected that. but sorry had to ask here anyway since the installation takes so long i wanted to make sure before I tried again.

    question though, i do not seem to have uninstall:

    Code:
    root@myadmin-mail:/root/ispconfig# cd /root/ispconfig/uninstall
    bash: cd: /root/ispconfig/uninstall: No such file or directory
    any other way to uninstall? many thanks again.

    Yes, just run:

    rm -rf /root/ispconfig
    rm -rf /home/admispconfig

    and delete the ISPConfig mysql database.
