Default Perfect Server Fedora 9

I wanted to say thanks to the author Falko for the tut, Perfect Server Fedora 9. Good tutorial, easy to follow, not too confusing.

I have had a couple of minor problems, think maybe something I did. I did some searching on both Fedora Forums and this forum and found some information that touched base on my issues but not completely.

I followed the tutorial the first, I didn't have much trouble until I got to Quota, Ruby, and ISPconfig. ISPConfig wouldn't install fully. When I rebooted it wouldn't mount the file system and would hang.

When I started over, I got about as far as disabling SElinux and upon reboot, loading "sendmail" took longer than normal to load. When I was finally able to login, it was almost like my machine was bogged down. It seemed odd, the system is using a AMD Athlon 64 with a gig of ram.

Great tutorial and describes the exact system I need. I have hopes to set up a small network for our office with all the features this tutorial has.

I live in a rural area without broadband, our office been in talks with an major ISP provider. With hopes of becoming hosting multiple servers, and bringing broadband to the area. I would really like to set this kind of system up; clone it and install on multiple machines with maybe minimal configuration on varying systems.

I am in the process of a third attempt and will more than likely be posting further issues.

That sounds as if the internet connection or the DNS resolution are not working. What's in /etc/resolv.conf?

I have once again started over, have got all the packages installed and was successful in getting ISPconfig to install with no errors.

When I reboot the system now, it starts apache and asks for my pass phrase I enter the pass phrase and then a screen loads, with a blank menu bar. There is no usual login screen nothing. I have read other posts where there is an modification for "any shell" and see if that fixes my problem

Is there a way to get to the /etc/shells file and edit those lines, using a live cd?
I have tried mounting the drive into the /mnt file on the live cd with no luck. I am not that good with remembering all the commands and am at a loss really now wanting to start over. If I do I think I will try and edit that file before I actually shut the machine down after installing ispconfig.

Press ALT + F2 to get to the console. You can then edit /etc/shells with vi:
Code:
vi /etc/shells
Reboot the system afterwards.

Default Another Fan With Questions

I too am working on a Web server based on your article. I have two questions, one, I set-up a Web server just by luck and with help from articles like yours on Fedora 2. I tried to do the same thing with Fedora 9 and ran into problems. That is how I came across your article in the first place. I cannot access the Web server from the Internet. The new install has the same IP address and host name, but it wont respond to requests. This is the error message I get on boot up.

Starting httpd: (98) address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80

The server is behind a router but has forwarding allowed for the severs IP address. I have changed nothing in my network except the server OS

Second question. when I run mysqladmin for -h I get the following error.

mysqladmin: connect to server at 'server1.helicoptermcbill.com' failed
error: 'Host 'server1.helicoptermcbill.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'

I had no trouble with the root password, just the host/root shot me the above error.

my hosts file looks like this.

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.111 server1.helicoptermcbill.com server1
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

Hope I am not jumping on the other posters toes, just want to get my server up and running again. I will continue with the tutorial and check back.

Thanks in advance...

Bill.

Default Fixed 1 problem

I corrected the issue with the (98) address already in use.

but now I want to add on more question. instead of server1.helicoptermcbill.com, can I go with host.helicoptermcbill.com, or does it matter what I name the server. And I still am looking for a fix for MySQL not wanting to accept host passwords. In fact this is the error I just received.

# mysqladmin -h server1.helicoptermcbill.com -u root password ********
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'server1.helicoptermcbill.com' failed
error: 'Host 'server1.helicoptermcbill.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'

Other than that little issue I am on page five and moving along.

Bill.

Take a look at chapter 8 on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_se...pensuse10.3_p4 (beginning with the "As you've seen in the netstat output, MySQL is not only listening on localhost" part) to see how you can fix this.
