ISP Config seems like it would be perfect for my hosting requirements, but I just can’t seem to get it working. I am going on my 4th local installation, and have read back about 4 months in the forums, and still don’t know quite what to do.
The basic problem is that domain names don’t resolve outside of my local network. If you enter either of the two names in question: www.506birch.com
in a browser, it reports “page not found” and if you ping either one of these, it tries to ping my inside (private) IP address 192.168.55.20.
Here is a detailed description of what I have done so far:
I installed ISP Config using The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04) and followed the instructions to the letter. I named my server “506birch” and my FQDN which is registered with GoDaddy is 506birch.com. This makes my server 506birch.506birch.com. My internal server IP is 192.168.55.20, while the static IP of my Linksys router is 188.8.131.52 and I have both port forwarding and DMZ enabled to 192.168.55.20.
ISP Config works perfectly from both the private and public IP addresses https://my.ip.add.res:81
and I have specified the following settings:
Management > Settings > Server > IP address = 192.168.55.20
Management > Settings > DNS > ns1.506birch.com & ns2.506birch.com
And I have created the domain 506birch.com:
With the following DNS settings:
Then I went to my GoDaddy control panel and set up two new “hosts”:
NS1.506BIRCH.COM=184.108.40.206 & NS2.506BIRCH.COM=220.127.116.11
And then set the Custom Nameservers to those hosts for both 506birch.com and headgallery.com:
Any help or ideas on where I messed up sure would be appreciated.
