Red face I'm an IDIOT

I have put myself in a real problem.

Been running ISPCONFIG for sometime without issue. I had to rebuild my laptop which naturally wiped all my caches, and I forgot to save my Firefox Bookmarks which had the URL to my ISPCONFIG admin page.

My ISPCONFIG box sits on my LAN. I know it's IP, and I know the user and pass, I also know the hostname but I don't know the URL to get to it. Sounds stupid I know.

I have been googling for hours and know it has something to do with the config.inc.php and or the httpd.conf and now that i have tried many different combinations to try and rectify it I am completely lost.

Can I reset/reconfigure this area of ISPCONFIG? I know I can still see all the users etc through WEBMIN and have full control over the box, but I want my ISPCONFIG control panel back.

Can someone help?

did you try http://the_lan_ip_of_server:81 or if you used https https://the_lan_ip_of_server:81, or am I missing here something?

If you want to use the domainname instead of IP, login with the IP URL, and goto Management > Settings. In Domain, you will see the main domainname ISConfig is listening to.

Default Yes, tried that but still doesn't work

I know the PORT number I have used during setup, (800) and i know the IP, but I cannot connect.

Could someone please tell me PRECISELY what should be in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and what should be in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php in the server section given the following information I know : IP = PORT = 800

In "/root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf", try to find something similar to the following (this is what I found in mine)
# Port: The port to which the standalone server listens. For
# ports < 1023, you will need httpd to be run as root initially.
Port 81
Listen 81
Those last 2 lines tell what port your ISPConfig is listening on.

Or you can look at "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php", and see if there is something like the following under "System Settings":
  $go_info["server"]["server_url"] = 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'];
} else {
  $go_info["server"]["server_url"] = "http://www.domain.ca:81";
The $go_info["server"]["server_url"] lines will tell you how to access your ISPConfig via browser. The 2nd one is generally the easiest.

Default Don't know why

Thanks for your replies, what I did was change it from 800 (which I had set in install ages ago) back to 81 and hey presto. Must have been something to do with my network stopping 800, even though I am access it via a LAN.
