What's Up with This? I deleted the (2) required dirs again and will now run a fresh install.
I'm not mad or anything just a little lost as always.
I am behind a linksys router and have a WAN static IP from my provider 216.X.X.X
The linksys is the gateways with an ip of 192.168.1.x and the debain box with ISPconfig
installed is behind it also on a 192.168.1.x address (these are also static LANS), able to get online ping IP's the whole works. The ports that need forwarding are doing so with no issues.
I also have two registered domains fakedomaint.net and fakedomainp.ca
I also have a primary name server glued by easydns.com using my static IP however after a new install nslookup cannot see it ns1.fakedomaint.net, however since easydns.com does secondary dns I'm able to load the page.
I follow (no webalizer install) the steps located at falktotimme.com for the debian 3.1 setup.
In the dir called admin I do the following.
tar xvfz ISPConfig*.tar.gz
This part works great.
I go through the certification process on the command line and in steps 7 & 8 I say no.
I go through the "standard" setup saying yes to postfix and proftp.
Please enter your MySQL server: localhost
Please enter your MySQL user: etc etc
.......then it goes to
Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: Do I add my WAN static IP from my provider or my router 192.168.1.x IP and if I make a mistake where do I change it?For the sake of this long question I put in my router assigned address 192.168.1.x, the same address I have in /etc/network/interfaces.
(there is no second IP installed there)
Please enter the host name (e.g. www):www
Please enter the domain: fakedomaint.net
I pick https and it says I have connected to MYSQL server, restarts postfix.
I get the Congrats screen and it's ready for me to login to
I login change my password and am ready to "try" to make some sites.
The actual tool is pretty fast I don't have to wait 30 to 60 seconds more like 5-10.
My tree looks like this.
The first thing I do is click "New Client" since I want the basics first (Not New Reseller).
Title: Fakedomaint.net Client
Folder: admin, Reseller, Clients, Sites (I leave it as admin)
I fill out the information needed in Master Data.
I then click SAVE for the purpose of explanation.
The tree now looks like this:
I click "fakedomaint.net Client" in the tree so that I can click the "Site Management" tab.
I click the New button
Customer: fakedomaint.net Client
Hostingplan: Individual Settings
Title: fakedomaint.net Site
Folder: admin, Reseller, Clients, Sites (I leave it as admin again)
Server: Server 1
IP Address: 192.168.1.x
Create DNS: CHECKED
Space MB: -1
Traffic MB: -1
Traffic Exceedance: No Action
Max. User: -1
Max. Domain: -1
Everything is checked from Shell Access to MAIL USER LOGIN for the purpose of testing.
I click save again and now "Site Management" has an IP of 192.168.1.x listed. I click on
that IP address then "USER and EMAIL" tab and begin to make an email account.
Real Name: my name
WebSpace MB: -1
MailSpace MB: -1
Shell Access: CHECKED
Advanced Settings Tab I leave everything blank and unchecked.
Spamfilter and Antivirus I leave everything blank and unchecked.
I click "Save" and now in "USER and EMAIL" I see
User Surname Email Admin CatchAll
web1_myname my name myname 1 0
NOTE: FOR some reason it had a co-domain listed with the same IP, I deleted that.
I also click the "OPTIONS TAB" and mail server says "Local Mail Server"
The SSL tab is also blank just so you know.
Web Server: On
FTP Server: On
SMTP Server: On
DNS Server: On
mySQL Server: On
MTA TYPE: POSTFIX
Okay at this point I click the header
"Web Selection" shows
Select Web: fakedomaint.net Site (nothing else to pick in drop down)
Username : web1_myname
Password : some password
I click selection and it logs me in and I see a number of folders.
Question #1 Great but now which folder do I create my first web page in and
what is the URL PATH?
Question #2 Still not able to login to https://www.fakedomaint.net:81/mailuser
If I missed something please tell me I'm trying as hard as I can with this stuff.
