Question "It works!" and Ubuntu 9.10


I have an issue I ran into before, but can't find the old posts I had. I also have a twist.

The problem is that when I have everything configured, my site still gives the default page for apache2 installation. The "It works!" followed by "This is the default web page for this server." and on a new line, "The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet."

To explain what I've done, I'll need to explain my network setup as well. ISPConfig 2 is installed on a VMWare Server, through Windows 7 as the host machine. The "guest" is an Ubuntu 9.10 server, no GUI components installed. I followed a guide The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Karmic Koala (Ubuntu 9.10) [ISPConfig 2] (source here). This is all behind a NAT Linksys WRT54GS2 router with the ports forwarded.

Before installing the ISPConfig through the installer I installed the suPHP according to the Ubuntu section here. I did download the latest, as the one listed there didn't compile. Everything else I configured and compiled just as stated there.

With the above information, you realize by now I have two IP addresses to consider. My 192.169 and my external. Since any nslookup can give that IP address out, that would be

I restored a working backup of the ispconfig database, but it seems to not be working now. I would like to confirm, and if needed, get further help on locating what is going wrong and why I'm not getting the ISPConfig page stating it's hosted and the default for ISPConfig, instead of the "It works".

Now the servers IP address in Management -> Server -> Settings is currently set to my 192.168 address. Everything dependent on that is set as well, the co-domain IP, etc. The DNS is set as that as well, since the does not rely on my DNS server for it. The IP address does not give me the sharedip either.

What do I need to look at to see why ISPConfig's vhost is not taking over vs the /var/www/index.html

After realizing to myself what the problem might be, I checked the /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file, and it's blank.

Thank you for your help, I look forward to receiving the great help I see here all the time. Accept my apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.
