Is there a better way of doing it? Maybe a way that doesn't involve it constantly letting me know it can't find the web server?
Also, wouldn't it be better if ispconfig looked for the web server on the ip that the public would be hitting it on? (just a thought...) If its a problem of figuring out what ip it is on, parsing the httpd.conf for the LISTEN directive would give it right away. Just my $.02
(You'll find I'm full of opinions and ideas... sometimes even a good one...)
