    Default Install script failing when installing on Ubuntu

    Hi, I am following the wiki at this URL below and it does not appear to be working as described.

    http://www.open-xchange.com/wiki/ind...ion_Ubuntu8.04

    Where it mentions "To avoid confusion right at the start notice that Open-Xchange uses multiple administration levels", I guess this means I should be prompted for security details, but I was not - instead I was only prompted for a password for mySQL, which I did. The installation screen then finished and went back to the command prompt, shown below...

    [...] > open-xchange-control open-xchange-easylogin \
    > open-xchange-group-managerequest open-xchange-i18n open-xchange-jcharset \
    > open-xchange-sessiond

    However, I tried the next step and it failed...

    sami@ubuntumail:~$ /etc/init.d/mysql start

    I then tried the install script again (sudo aptitude install mysql-server open-xchange etc.) in the hope I could re-run it, but it continues through and doesn't prompt for anything.

    Where am I going wrong? Can I start again somehow? I am using Ubuntu 9.04 Workstation and Kernel 2.6.28-15-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP. Thanks.

    Hi,

    have you tried to start mysql with "sudo"?

    Well, now you mention it, I think I did, but now I'm back home and can't refer to the system. I *think* when I did this, mySQL started successfully, but the next stage didn't work. I'll try properly tomorrow and report back. Many thanks and apologies for my vague response.

    Incidentally though, is there a way to remove the installation done so far, and re-install?
