Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post

above post did not resolve problem:

error message no longer says "httpd: bad user name ispapps"

current error message is "httpd: bad user name ispconfig"

on a side note, following the post above spit out:
aseradd: warning: the home directory already exists.
Not copying any file from skel directory into it.

I can see what the problem is on my installation.
$command = "useradd -g ispconfig -d $install_dir ispconfig";

in order for this to work on my centos 5.5 install it would need to say
/usr/sbin/useradd -g...

in the howto i had to add /sbin/ in front of the chkconfig commands:

so now I am tracking down what $install_dir =
to do the groupadd/useradd
looks like = /usr/local/ispconfig

that allowed me to start apache but current error is:
[warn] NameVirtualHost *.80 has no VirtualHosts

Default Apache page pulls up at

Error Message pulls up at
