Plesk installation fails with the error:
Error message or request description : ***** problem report ***** ERROR while trying to establish test connection. If you are installing Plesk on an already configured MySQL server, you need to specify the administrator's credentials to succeed with the installation. To do this, you need to create a file - /root/.my.cnf with the 'client' section where you need to provide user and its password ("user = $admin_name" and "password = $admin_pass"). After installation is finished, the file /root/.my.cnf will be renamed to /root/.my.cnf.bak Check the error reason(see log file: /var/log/plesk/install/plesk_12.0.18_installation.log), fix and try again Synchronizing the Debian APT package index files.
Mysql had already been installed.
/root/.my.cnffile and specify login and password for mysql user:
# cat /root/.my.cnf [client] user = root password = root_password
- Install Plesk again.
