Then you should have entered server1 as hostname, not www...

kreya 8th June 2007 08:32

i entered www in hostname and abc.com in domain
Please enter the host name: www
Please enter the domain: abc.com
The URL is not reachable!

this happened for the 2nd time also(format & install ). I remember very well that i gave www in the place of hostname.

I guess I get this error only when i try it with a registered domain. when i tried it first with a domain that doesn't exists like dummydomain.com the installation went fine. i was able to access the ispconfig box using its IP.


pls help me out

The Domain you enter in the installer must be reachable with ping. You can try this before you install ISPCOnfig with:

ping -c 3 www.abc.com

unknow host
 
the output of
ping -c 3 www.abc.com

ping: unknown host www.abc.com

the SSL issue is over. i changed the domain name in ispconfig--server--settings
to abc.com and hostname to www using https://192.168.0.1:81/

my registrar doesn't have anything named A record
there was a link - Register & Manage Nameservers
i entered ns1 and selected my domain then entered my static IP. i think this would create A record. then i changed the name server of abc.com to ns1.abc.com

2 things i need are :
ping -c 3 www.abc.com to resolve ww.abc.com
how do i check if A record is created at my registrar's end. i've created A record pointing to my Lan IP in line with this.

i am trying to setup a dns server abc.com(no Mails) then add xyz.com in the same machine for mail. just one machine.

pls help me out. thanks again for helping with the SSL issue.

I told you before that you should use server1, not www as the hostname!

Run
Code:

dig www.abc.com

before starting ISPconfig Installation ensure you are able to ping www.yourdomain.com. you should get reply from your Static IP. if you get that everything is fine.
if you are not able to ping www.yourdomain.com it's probably because your changes at the domain registrar's end like name server , A record are not updated.

you can also continue the installation using ispconfig server IP and later make the changes but for the changes to take effect it would take few hours.
if u have changed the name servers , A record it may take anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours. normally it gets updated within 24 hours.



have a nice day:cool:
