problem with upgrade to 2.2.34
After what appeared to be a successful upgrade I can no longer login to the ISPConfig Web Manager. All of my sites are OK. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Which distribution do you use?
Did you try to restart ISPConfig?

/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

I am Using Debian 4.0
When trying to restart the system I received this error;

www:~# /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
Shutting down ISPConfig system...

ISPConfig system stopped!

When I open /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf with vi this is what I get;


This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:> for detailed information about
# the directives.
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
# After this file is processed, the server will look for and process
# /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/srm.conf and then /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/access
# unless you have overridden these with ResourceConfig and/or
# AccessConfig directives here.
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:

Try this:

vi +1073 /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

This is what I get;

<IfDefine SSL>

ServerAdmin root@
This is where the problem is. Try


ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin root@localhost

brianetilley 8th November 2009 17:09

When I enter;

ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin root@localhost
at the command line, this is what I get.

www:~# ServerName localhost
-bash: ServerName: command not found

www:~# ServerAdmin root@localhost
-bash: ServerAdmin: command not found

This is correct

You must change the lines in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. These are no commands for the command line.
