Complete newbie questions
 
I've been browsing through this forum and through the ISPconfig documentation and I'm completely lost. I'll begin with the fact that I am currently running a webserver and it's only accessable remotely by the IP address. I've actually got these domain purchased by a registrar: plastikracing.net and vasceria.com.

I'm trying to figure out how to setup a domain (fedexunderground.com) to run from my computer. I've installed ISPconfig successfully and I've been messing with a lot of things in the admin section (localhost:81). I've got so many questions I don't even know where to begind. Basically, the FedEx site I'm working on was originally located at 65.186.87.93/fedex1 and now I'd like to set it up to www.fedexunderground.com. Stuff like the DNS servers I'm not sure what to enter. I saw in the documentation that the example showed 2 IP addresses, but I ony have one IP address.

Can anyone help? I'm completely unsure as where to begin.

I'll try to help you, but you have to make some things a littlbe bit clearer.

Am I right that you can specifiy which IP address the domains should point to?

Does your computer have a fixed IP address? Or is it connected with a dialup account with flexible IP addresses?

I have a static IP address from my cable company (65.186.87.93) and I setup this computer that I'm on to have a static IP on 192.168.1.110.

Then you must point the DNS records for fedexunderground.com to 65.186.87.93 and forward port 80 from your router to your ISPconfig system. Afterwards, create a web site for fedexunderground.com with ISPConfig (if you haven't already).

So I don't need to purchase the domain fedexunderground.com to be able to do this? I can't even get BIND to work correctly. It says it's offline and I have no idea what I put for my nameserver 1 and 2. Here is what I currently have:

http://65.186.87.93/dns_config.png

If you want to use a domain in the internet, you must own this domain or the owner of this domain must allow you to set DNS-Records for the domain.

To your bind problem:

Did you get any errors when you start bind on the commandline?

Alright. The domain is purchased and I currently have it forwarding to my IP. I just can't figure out how to set this up so instead of forwarding www.fedexunderground.com to my IP, I can use nameservers and have the site work that way.

Which distribution do you use? What's in /etc/named.conf?

tristanlee85 26th April 2006 07:29

I'm using Fedora Core 5 and named.conf is completely blank.
