I did as you said in your post Till but I ran into an error where ispconfig would start but was unable to startssl. So I put the error into Google as I always do and it always points to this site
thank god for that. Well something was wrong with the ssl key so I did as you told another person to recrate the SSL cert using the commands below and everything fired right up. Thanks for your help you guys are great keep up the great work. I do plan on upgrading to a new version of linux but just dont have the time, Question whats the best and most stable linux distro now adays.
