View Full Version : Cannot login to ISPConfig3

29th January 2009, 22:47
Not sure what happened, I had it running ok earlier, then when I tried to enable the mail settings it locked up, so I reboot the server. Now I try to login in and it says it cannot find it, says unable to establish connection.??

ok I went to server and typed: netstat -tap and I didnt see the httpd on, so I tried to restart and it gave me failure stating that syntax was wrong in line 37 of /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/xxx.com.vhosts, invalid command "FCGIWrapper" perhaps misspelled or define by a module not included in server config.

This means that you selceted fcgi for php in thatw ebsite but missed to install mod_fcig in your apache server. To fix this, install mod_fcgi from your linux distribution.

Thanks Till,

I am working with CentOS 5.2 and am noobie at it. how would I go about aquiring and installing the mod_fcgi? I tried the yum install mod_fcgi but that didnt work, then did a search for it and found it at the sourceforge.net and downloaded on my regular PC, but how do I get it to the server (text based)?

Thanks for the help.

yum search fcgi

to find the name of the centos package that has to be installed.

Till, the result was:


I did find the mod_fcgid at http://journal.paul.querna.org/articles/2006/01/01/using-mod_fcgid-for-ruby-on-rails-applications./ and am wondering if I can follow those directions but with the newest version of mod_fcgid or should I do something else?

Well the link for the mod_fcgid wont work because I still need to find the file..

I've written a tutorial about this yesterday which I will publish in a few days. Here's an excerpt:

mod_fcgid is not available in the official CentOS repositories, but there's a package for CentOS 5.x in the centos.karan.org testing repository. We enable the repository as follows:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://centos.karan.org/kbsingh-CentOS-Extras.repo

Next we open /etc/yum.repos.d/kbsingh-CentOS-Extras.repo...

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/kbsingh-CentOS-Extras.repo

... and set gpgcheck to 0 and enabled to 1 in the [kbs-CentOS-Testing] section:

name=CentOS.Karan.Org-EL$releasever - Testing

Afterwards we can install Apache2, mod_fcgid, and PHP5:

yum install httpd mod_fcgid php-cli

Sorry it took me a while to reply. This is good news, when will the tut be ready to read, or is that the whole enchilada.

I have since re-installed CentOs 5.2 to the whole hd, since I couldnt do anything about the wipeout I did with enabling fastcgi, when I didnt even have that installed. Maybe there should have been a small do not...in the how to, after all i am a noob and us noobs tend to push buttons that we shouldnt push, hah reminds me of when I was training BigTruck driver noobs, they would touch a button/switch and I would yell NO! LMAO

anyways, I didnt have too many errors re-installing ISPConfg3, though I will post them in a new thread, or search first.

In a few days. :) But my previous post shows how you can install mod_fcgid on CentOS.
