ispconfig cannot create databases

    In the past everything was working properly, database creation at all, but I had to fix the file system on my server using fsck because the server was booting in read only mode, and I accidentally messed up some file permissions on my server.

    In doing this, I think some of the files needed for database creation might have the wrong permissions.

    Any ideas what files would affect this process and what the permissions have to be?

    The users and databases are created in ISPconfig, but when I log into PHPMyAdmin I don't see the users or database that I created.

    Thanks for your help.

    ispconfig might be able to fix its file permissions. Try this:

    cd /tmp
    tar xvfz ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3_install/install
    php -q update.php
    and choose to reconfigure services during update.

    Is mysql running?

    Evertyhing under /var/lib/mysql is owned recursive by mysql.mysql with permissions 660 for files and 700 for directories.

    You should also check the permissions for the mysql-logs.

    mysql won´t start with permissions anyway.
