    Hi guys, wonder if you can assist I kep getting the same error despite my now various attempts to install ISPConfig, it gets right through the majority of the install and then bombs out giving me a PHP Error. Now I am running PHP without any issues at all so I cant see what may be causing the errors. Has anyone ever seen this issue before. Just in case it may help my server is running the following Kernel.

    viper:/storage/install_ispconfig# uname -a
    Linux viper.xxxxxx.xxxxx.xx.xx 2.6.12-1-686-smp #1 SMP Tue Sep 27 13:10:31 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux

    ( Hostnmae ommited for obvious reasons )

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have included details of other services and there versions below for your reference if it makes this easier.

    apache 1.3.34-1
    mysql-server 4.1.15-1
    mysql-common 5.0.15-2
    php4 4.4.0-4
    bind9 9.3.1-2.0.1
    procmail 3.22-11
    proftpd 1.2.10-25
    quota 3.13-4

    If you need any other information at all please ask and I will get it as soon as possible.

    As you may be able to tell I am very eager to get ISPConfig up and running :)

    Kind Regards to you all

    It would help if you could supply details of exactly where it fails, a screen dump maybe.

    Are you running this on a clean install? Which distro?

    Did you follow the guide for "the perfect setup"?

    The install fails at the below point

    checking for MSSQL support via FreeTDS... no
    checking for MySQL support... yes
    checking for specified location of the MySQL UNIX socket... no
    checking for MySQL UNIX socket location... no
    configure: error: Cannot find MySQL header files under /usr.
    Note that the MySQL client library is not bundled anymore.
    ERROR: Could not configure PHP

    I am running a Debian system. I am not using a clean install as there is a fault with the CD that I was provided. Surely ISPConfig can be installed onto a current functional OS.

    You must install the mysql-devel files. Run this:

    apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient12-dev
    Afterwards you should be able to install ISPConfig.
