    I am attempting to install Plesk on Fedora core 2 (fresh install of fodera) and Plesk is giving me errors. here is the error log:

    ERROR while trying to Unable to get admin password
    I am installing Plesk 7.5.3 via SSH using root. I have installed 7.5 with no problem but with 7.5.3 that error shows up. Anybody know what it is asking? why is it not able to get admin password? is it trying to get it from MySQL? any help would appreciated thanks.

    Are you root?

    It can't read /etc/psa/.shadow to get the admin password. I think you're trying to install Plesk as a non-root user (!)

    Try reading the file yourself...

    # cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow
