Default Fedora 5 and ISPCONFIG

Great product! Thanks to all whose hard work is shown in this software! The step by step HOW-TOs are fantastic!

I got some issues though.

1) DNS Problem. A domain is already set up on a primary DNS server with and IP assigned. Using the F5 walktrhough, I added 2 IPs as shown. OK fine.
I created a Reseller to add domains and customers. Set myself up as a "reseller" to do the bulk of domains I own. I go into add a domain and assign one of the 2 IPs I added to to the server.
a) I get an error message that the domain is already hosted ???? Nope its not.
ISPCONFIG must check for the existance of an external DNS record and assume that its already live somewhere else. Thus the message. Ok.. HOW do you stop this from doing that? I do not want to use the DNS backend here.

b) When I assign a domain to an IP address that has been added to the interface ( eth0:0, eth0:1, etc.) No matter what you try, it always gives me the default "SHARED IP screen". Annoying. I see in the /etc/httpd/conf/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf that is correctly adds the domains and assigns the IPs correctly... But at the top of the config file, it forces the following:

ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin root@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/sharedip
ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin root@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/sharedip
Why in the world would it think that its a shared IP ?? Its not! below these lines are the correct entries fro apache to handle each domain, yet it can never get there because of the bogus top stuff!

IPs are changed to protect the innocent. This is set up in a small ISP environment where we are testing various packages to use. We REALLY like this software but its VERY confusing.

We tried to go through the forums, but sometimes its really confusing!
Can't find the answers or not the same problem.

Can anyone help with WHY its always defaulting to the sharedip for a new domain ? And/Or why its always adding this to the top of the config file for a vhost?

The server is a new install of both fedora 5 and ispconfig.

is there anyway to easily add new interfaces (eth0:8,eth0:9, etc) into the system besides manually doing this or using WEBMIN ?

Virtual hosting is good, but what if I wanted to dedicate IPs to people ?

thanks in advance!


is there any way that I can ONLY assign certain IPs that are defined on the system to specific resellers ? Or is ISPCONFIG moreso for just 1 IP address and pure virtual hosting?
Say I define 50 IPs on a server and want to assign 5 to reseller 1 and 10 to reseller 2 ? can this be done to reseller 1 does not use nor see the IPs for reseller 2 ?
