Default Problem migrating to new server...

Hi guys. I have a small (but hopefully solvable) problem...

I had ISPConfig2 up and running on an Ubuntu machine that I set up using your howto guide. Due to several reasons, I am switching machines.

I set up a new server using your Fedora 14 Perfect Server setup. I installed ISPConfig2 on top following the instructions. ISPConfig seemed to be working fine.

Today, I migrated my data from the old server to the new by going through the following procedures.

On the old (Ubuntu) server:

cd /var
tar -pczf www-2011-3-20.tar.gz www/
mysqldump -u root -psecret --all-databases > backup.sql
Then I moved the backup files over to the new server and:

cd /var
mv -r www/ www1/
tar xvfz www-2011-3-20.tar.gz www/
mysql -u root -psecret < backup.sql
rm www1/
I then switched the router forwarding from the old server to the new, and went inside ISPConfig to update everything to point to the new server (my old server was and my new is I changed the IP address settings for the server, the sites themselves and also updated the DNS entries using the DNS Manager tab.

I thought that'd be that, but at a most basic level I am having a problem. When I go to Server Status under the Management tab, it shows Web Server and BIND Server as offline. Even if I go to Services, set everything to ON and click SAVE, those two remain off. I don't know what BIND is or if I need it, but I certainly need the web server to be running, don't I?

How to fix? Happy to troubleshoot. I'm thinking maybe a complete ISPConfig uninstall, reinstall and then try starting over? What do you think?
