Fedora9 & ISPConfig Install showstopper
 
Hello,

I used the guidelines to install ISPConfig v2.2.24 to Fedora9 here:

The Perfect Server - Fedora 9

Everything seemed to be working fine except that when I reboot it gets to:

Starting ISPConfig System... [OK]
/root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachect1 startssl: httpd started

After that the computer pops out of detailed startup mode and hangs before the login gui.

I've retried to install this from scratch twice already and have resulted in the same problem.

Any advice on how to recover the system?

well you're not busted . . .
 
Get a system shell if you can get one . . . go to /etc/shells and remove the entry in capital letters which is something like /ETC/SOMETHING/BOGUS (I gorgot the actual verbiage, but it's impossible to miss!!).

Reboot and you should be fine. THis bit me too!! AAGGHH!!

This should explain in much more detail than what I put in how to fix it.

This is the only entry in the shells file:

/bin/sh
/bin/bash
/sbin/nologin
/bin/zsh
/bin/false
/SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL/

Do I remove it all or just the /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL/ ???

Thanks for your help

Ok that seems to have fixed that problem and am now wondering what's boken after removing /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL/ ??

I am now able to login ok.

Thanks!

Nothing if you use Postfix. :)

That's good. I noticed it installs somewhere during the ISPConfig install. Any chance you could add a line item in the Perfect Fedora 9 Install to remove this little annoyance before you reboot?

It has become an additional step for me.

Same blank blue screen
 
Hi Guys I removed /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL/ and still experiencing same problem.

Any other thing I should change?

till 24th January 2009 23:33

Reboot the server afterwards.

rvakili 24th January 2009 23:36

Done so 3 times. I also change the Fedora template as it was in another posting from infinity to circullar with no luck

Thanks
