    Hi, i'm getting this error: ERROR: Unable to create MySQL database: dbispconfig.
    I've tried with the phpmyadmin username and pass and the mysql credentials from the config.php file of my wordpress site.

    If it's not one of those 2 i don't know what username and pass it's asking me.
    Could it be a problem that the password has "[],.$" symbols on it? :confused:

    This cant work. To nstall ispconfig, you have to use the mysql root user. Your wordpress database user has not enough priveliges to create a new database. and make sure that there is no database "dbispconfig" on your server yet.

    Hi thanks for the info.
    I've checked the dbispconfig doesn't exist.

    I have a centos 6.2 vps and i have acess to root via SSH. Could you help me find the root mysql credentials? :eek:

    I want to use ispconfig to create a subdomain and be able to login to it with ftp to use it, i don't know how to do this with SSH so i thought about installing this panel which seems easier for me:D But i just need help find this root mysql credentials i don't have :(

    Sorry for trouble!

    The first step is to prepare the server for the installation of ispconfig. Follow this guide from chapter 5 to install all nescessary services:

    By default, the mysql root password on centos is not set, the guide above contains instructions on how to set it. If there is already a root password set on your server, then try to use the ssh root password first. if this wont work, then either ask your ISP where you rented the server for the password or we have to try to reset the password manually.

    Ok! I made some progress :)
    I got the root credentials now, a different problems come up:
    "ERROR: The postfix configuration directory '/etc/postfix' does not exist."

    i looked at the link from your last post but there was nothing on "postfix" or "configuration directory"

    I don't want to break anything, how should i proceed ?

    Did you install all software exactly as described in the guide? The postfix directory gets creaed by yum when you install postfix. you can not install ispconfig without installing the prerequisites that are described in the perfect server guide first. the perfect server guide described the min. system requirements for ispconfig, so if you leave out any step from that guide, a prt of ispconfg will not work.

    I didn't realize there was more than 1 page. It was page 3 of 7 i was looking at, there are a lot of things i didn't do. I'll get to work then :)
    Sorry! :p

    it says now "ERROR: Stopped: Database already contains some tables."
    I don't have any "dbispconfig" database, i don't understand why it says that.
