Re: problems with installation

*) Show us error log while you executing "bash iRedMail.sh".
*) Does it work if you remove package "mysql-server" first?

To solve this problem, it's possible to use MariaDB with iRedMail ?

iRedMail doesn't support MariaDB yet.

Did you use a clean Debian server with official apt repositories?

I know but the installation of MariaDB is ok for me. I think integration of MariaDB is not complicated because is a fork of MySQL.

Yes, Debian is fresh when I test, I reinstall it at every failure of installation of iRedMail.
I use this script and I launch iRedMail's installation after the reboot.

The problem with mysql-server-5.5 seems known on the Internet but no solution is proposed.
