SQL-Dump during step 24 of install

    On a CentOS 6.6 install, I get the following error:
    ERROR: Unable to load SQL-Dump into database table.
    The MySQL server is separate from the ISPConfig3 server. I am using this Perfect Server tutorial as my guide: https://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-...hp-pureftpd-postfix-dovecot-and-ispconfig3-p6
    The changes are that mysql has not been installed on the ISPConfig3 server, phpMyAdmin as been setup to point to the MySQL server. All steps through 23 (Install SquirrelMail) work.

    I can manage the MySQL server from the ISPConfig3 server's phpMyAdmin page. There are no special characters in the admin account's password.

    When I attempt to install ISPConfig3 these are the results:
    [root@mirage3 install]# php -q install.php

    >> Initial configuration
    Operating System: Redhat or compatible, unknown version.
    Following will be a few questions for primary configuration so be careful.
    Default values are in [brackets] and can be accepted with <ENTER>.
    Tap in "quit" (without the quotes) to stop the installer.
    Select language (en,de) [en]:
    Installation mode (standard,expert) [standard]: expert
    Full qualified hostname (FQDN) of the server, eg server1.domain.tld [mirage3.mydomain.com]:
    MySQL server hostname [localhost]: mirage5.mydomain.com
    MySQL root username [root]: admin
    MySQL root password []: XXXXXXXXXX
    MySQL database to create [dbispconfig]:
    MySQL charset [utf8]:
    The next two questions are about the internal ISPConfig database user and password.
    It is recommended to accept the defaults which are 'ispconfig' as username and a random password.
    If you use a different password, use only numbers and chars for the password.
    ISPConfig mysql database username [ispconfig]:
    ISPConfig mysql database password [aa23d297d8562e151436f8daa42e13b0]:
    Shall this server join an existing ISPConfig multiserver setup (y,n) [n]:
    ERROR: Unable to load SQL-Dump into database table.
    [root@mirage3 install]#
    Any help would be appreciated.

    AFAIK the installer does not work with an remote-database-server. The occur occours due to the check if the database was created - the check itself uses no remote-connection.

    If that is the case, why does the installer ask this:
    MySQL server hostname [localhost]: mirage5.mydomain.com
    If seems odd to ask for the server hostname if it will only install using the localhost.
    Thanks for the reply,

    Is there a work-around for this deficiency?
    Could we perhaps do this?
    1. install MySQL on the server
    2. Install ISPConfig3
    3. Then point these files to the dedicated, backend MySQL server:
    4. Remove MySQL from the ISPConfig3 server
    Thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

    I still need to use a remote SQL server with ISPconfig. Have the developers fixed this problem yet, perhaps in 3.1?
