Questions about ISPconfig usage
 
I am setting up a network at home for hosting a few sites I have.
This is going to be an elaborate network for what I am doing.
I need to know what is the right course of action for using ispconfig for this setup. Is Ispconfig needed for every server? It is not a problem to install and I already have my nameservers and www server setup.

I have some old server hardware. Compaq proliant 1850r's.


I have nameservers that I have setup with the Perfect Debian etch setup and ISPconfig.

Server 1 ns1.myhost.com nameserver
Dual p2 450 Proliant 1850r with 3 9.1 gig drives raid5

Server 2 ns2.myhost.com nameserver
Dual p2 450 Proliant 1850r with 3 9.1 gig drives raid5

Server 3 www.myhost.com server to host sites on
Dual P3 600 Proliant 1850r with 2 36.4gig drive raid 0+1
4 72gig drives raid5

Server 4 mail.myhost.com mail server
Dual P2 450 Proliant 1850r with 3 9.1 gig raid5

I am registering myhost.com at godaddy and using the Howto for setting up your own nameservers with godaddy...

What is the next step for seeing my www server and mail server...

Yes. In the current version ISPConfig can control only one server.

Create DNS records for www and mail. If they are of the same domain as ns1 and ns2, you need a glue record: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dns#Cir...d_glue_records

I am not hosting from the two name servers ..."ns1 and ns2"
I am hosting from another server "www" and I assume this will be my mail server also.... Three physical machines... All with Debian 4.0 and ispconfig.
I have read about the glue record but it is not sticking like glue...

On my www server I set the nameservers as ns1 and ns2 ....and it will propogate? so that when I create a site on www server the ns1 and ns2 will direct requests automatically?


Thank

This gets confusing. Can you explain with your real domain(s) what you're trying to do?

fordwrench 27th April 2007 17:17

1st nameserver = ns1.50hq.com 76.201.116.225
2nd nameserver = ns2.50hq.com 76.201.116.226
hosting server = srv1.50hq.com 76.201.116.227

att dsl with 5 static ip addresses

50hq.com and 50hq.net registered with godaddy

setup both nameservers with howtoforge instructions for godaddy

all 3 machines have debian etch 4.0 and ispconfig setup per your instructions on
howtoforge.

www and mail for 50hq.com are on srv1.50hq.com

mail.50hq.com not resolving.

Thanks for your help sofar...
