Smile Need some help with ispconfig errors

hello
I installed debian etch and followed the perfect setup, then installed ispconfig 2.2.18.
I have some issues with ispconfig:
I deleted ARecord & CNAME because i was having problem with dns is not
resolving to the domain name and still, when i try to add them again i got
an error on Arecord after i try to save " There is already a CNAME Record entry for this host in this zone." then i tried to add CNAME and got this : "There is already ARecord entry for this host in this zone."
I checked all recyclebins nothing in it.
I read on a post here you can delete it from the database table dns_a but i don't know how to
find it or where it is .
Another issue is when i empty the recycle bin and try to check it after long
time it says that it still updating the system please wait a while and try again.
The last issue is: proftpd server was working fine and today i was trying to
check the servers and it says FTP server offline , i try to run it from the shell
and said failed, is this may be because i changed the IP ?
Thanks any help will be appreciated.

Please empty the recycle bin in the dns manager.

To your ftp problem, please configure proftpd to listen also on the IP 127.0.0.1

hello till
thanks for your response.
I tried to empty the recyclebin on dns, like i mensioned above and it gives me
the same error, so i found dns_a and took it out from their (phpmyadmin ispconfigdb table dns_a) even doing that did not stop the same errors.
concerning proftpd the listen to IP 127.0.0.1 how to do that ? i mean what to write ? , what is weird is last time that happen i installed it and take it out like 10 times untill it works, and my host file which it could be the reason is correct with server name and IP.
As a final solution i thought to uninstall ispconfig and reinstall after installing
proftpd first, if this will solve the problem.
another simple question i rather to ask it here instead of posting
a new one:
myserver is just for me no resellers no clients no customers, so
where will be the best place to put the sites ? like under admin, sites ?
+ i don't see the file manager folder anywhere ? or i have to create
the folder file manager ?
Thanks very much for your help.

At least you must create one customer (this can be yourself); you can create it under admin and then place the web sites in the Sites folder.

For DNS records use your router's public IP address.

hello
Thanks for your reply.
I got tired of proftpd trying to install it so many time and it didn't work, so
i installed vsftpd instead, and i follow the setup instructions to make it secure
with mysql, now i created a /home/vsftpd/user like the instructions said and was able to upload files in ispconfig , my question is :
when i upload a new index ,it didn't show because ispconfig set the directory
different , where am i suppose to put my sites files on the sever in which
directory? if i put it like what ispconfig.conf said /var/www/web1/web
i can't upload it because vsftpd use /home/vsftpd/username/site ?
how can i slove this problem ?
Thanks again very much

The vsftpd with MySQL setup is incompatible with ISPConfig because ISPConfig uses system users, not virtual users.

FTP does not have to be configured to work with ISPConfig, it works right out of the box with the configurtaion that comes with the linux distribution.

I recommend that you uninstall FTP including all config files and then reinstall it as described in the perfect setup guide for your linux distribution.
