View Full Version : Cant login to ispconfig web admin page

18th October 2008, 17:47
So its a fresh install of Hardy Heron Ubuntu, newest build of ispconfig 2 and everything seems to work and boot ok .... except , i cant login to ispconfig with the browser.

the URL :-

returns :-

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

I can login to the Server using putty and on a reboot everything reboots ending with ISP starting with no errors!

I know your going to ask so here is my netstat -tap output :-

root@mars:/var/log# netstat -tap

Please run:

/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start

as root user on the shell.

Hey there

I already did this , the system is up and running but i still cannot login , i dont even get a message from the server , its as if there is no https service available.. It doesnt acknowledge that a connection is attempting to be made at all.
