    Where do I get the installation files for ISPConfig?

    I used "The Perfect Setup Fedora Core 4" instructions to do a clean install of Fedora Core 4, but I am now a little lost as to how and where to install ISPConfig.

    The only problem is that there is no instruction in that installation manual on how to download/install the package.

    Here are the first instructions:

    Log in to your shell as root.
    Unpack the ISPConfig-archive

    tar xvfz ISPConfig*.tar.gz

    and change to the directory install_ispconfig:

    cd install_ispconfig

    Where is the ISPConfig-archive?

    On the downloads page i posted above.

    If you open the site in the webbrowser, there is a line:

    When you click on download, you will be redirected to the sourceforge site where you can select a download mirror near your location.

    At the bottom of thsi post you will find instructions on how to download software with wget:

    Thanks, Till.

    Now I've run into a different issue.

    I ran through the install, and at the point where I needed to type in my mySQL password, I didn't enter it correctly, so the install stopped. I ran through the instructions of removing the install_ispconfig directory, the unpackaged it again, and reran the ./start program.

    However, at this point, it didn't ask me for my mySQL password, and it just said: Intall Succeeded/Completed. Subsequently, it didn't ask me for the following steps:

    Afterwards the following information has to be provided:

    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.
    Please enter the host name: E.g. www
    Please enter the domain: E.g.
    Please select the protocol (http or https (SSL encryption)) to use to access the ISPConfig system: If you want to use your control panel with SSL, select 1. You can then access it under If you want to access it under, choose 2.

    How can I enter/reenter these values?

    rm -fr /root/ispconfig
    rm -fr /home/admispconfig
    and then try to install again.
