Exclamation Ubuntu 11.10, ISPConfig needs some nginx.conf tweaks after following guide.

The guide at http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...nx-ispconfig-3 is excellent and clear, as they always are.

When I came to running the site, it said "Access forbidden".

After a lot of trial, error and Reading TFM, I found that I had to alter the file
At the top, I had to change

user nginx;

user  ispconfig;
and at the bottom of the file, I had to add the line

include /etc/nginx/sites-available/*.vhost;
just before the closing bracket. Save, then

Service nginx restart
and I'm in! Hope this helps others.

Incidentally, during the install I only saw one error:

Configuring Apps vhost
PHP Warning:  symlink(): No such file or directory in /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/lib/installer_base.lib.php on line 1519
Configuring Bastille Firewall
Finally, As it'll only be me using the ispconfig to manage sites I run with no other users and as I'm not going to be using any functions like sendmail, smtp, squirrelmail, pop, imap, courier etc... what can I safely turn off? I've only got a 256Mb RAM VPS and all this clam, amavisd etc is using memory.

Thanks for a great tutorial!
