Default ISPconfig - installed - services issues

Hi there,

Well I am a newbie to this ISPconfig but so far I think it rocks. I have installed it and have it running, however I am having problems with the services. Right now my FTP, SMTP/POP3 and BIND is not running on the service. I try to do the "re-start" but nothing happens. I have made sure each program is installed but I don't know where to go from here.....

Please help... thank you for all of your time.

Cheers,
Brendan

Does smtp, ftp and pop3 services are listening on localhost on your server? Please post the output of:

netstat -tap

Hey,

One thing that has helped me in the past is to start the services from the command and then you can see if they error or not. If they do error you can see why and maybe sort it that way,

Its just something I have done before, may help or may not.

Chris.

Hey! thanks for that tip.... but i already tried that, that was one of the first things i tried. see when a service doesn't start the way the intended program wants it to, 9 times out of 10 it is because of user input error - like a config setting is off or missing and even a dependent package. at least thats what is has been in most of the problems i've had.

thanks for your input!

Please post the exact error message that you get when you try to start the service and post any errors from your syslog or messages log that appear when you try to start the services.

I don't receive any errors. If I do service vsftpd start it starts normally but the ISPconfig interface does not recognize or see that it is started, the same for the SMTP/POP3 and BIND services.

The problem is not thet the ISPConfig interface did not recognize it, the problem is that your services are not started at all according to the netstat output. So this is not a ISPConfig problem, it is a general problem on your linux system.

Did you install your server according to the perfect setup guides?

Yes, I used a step by step guide to install ISPconfig. I can try again, is there a specific guide you can recommend? I am installing ISPconfig on Fedora Core 6.

Thanks Till.
