    I followed the install all the way till the MySQL part then it just falls apart. Have no idea why, this is the error.

    Preparing files. Please wait a moment...
    All prerequisites are fulfilled.
    Here we go...
    Please enter your MySQL server:divine
    Please enter your MySQL user:root
    Please enter your MySQL password:******
    ERROR 1130 (00000): Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
    ERROR: The provided MySQL password is wrong! The installation routine stops here!

    I made a database from admin so it should be the same password as the install. Then again is it looking at the database as if i were logged in to mysql as root and then would not have to give it a password?

    Your MySQL database should be installed on the same system where you want to install ISPConfig on. So when the installer asks "Please enter your MySQL server:" you should enter localhost.

    Dang nab it. I did not read that as such in the manual. I miss took it as putting in the server name.

    Now i have to figure the uninstall process to redo it.

    Delete the install_ispconfig directory, also /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig if they exist. Then upack the ISPConfig sources and run the installation again.
