Running ISPConfig on local network and hosting websites on same server
Hello, newb here.
I have successfully installed ISPConfig using the natty guide. The problem I have now is this: I am running this in a local server and playing with non-registered domain names.
Let's say the IP address is 192.168.0.1
ISPConfig runs on port 8080
Apache runs on port 80
The host name of the machine is: sandbox.vgm
I can ping this hostname from the local machine (but not from another machine on the same network -- although the IP address can be pinged from a remote machine)
New DNS Zone
I added a new DNS zone from ISPConfig with the following details:
IP Address: 192.168.0.1
NS 1: sandbox.vgm
NS 2: sandbox.vgm
and it created this record:
A mail 192.168.0.1 0
A test.vgm. 192.168.0.1 0
A www 192.168.0.1 0
MX test.vgm. mail.test.vgm. 10
NS test.vgm. sandbox.vgm. 0
I created a new website with these settings:
I tried accessing the website test.vgm from the local machine and from a remote machine. The server was found but with one problem: I am seeing the default Apache page -- not the new site's page. I am thinking that because the DNS records all point to 192.168.0.1, there is something wrong with mapping the domain name to the virtual host test.vgm.
Is this setup even possible? What changes do I have to make and what settings do I have to check?
