Default ispconfig install bump

hello everyone.
long story short linux meganoob starts installing linux server
how to forge guide ..all runs smooth
i eventually manage to get the install pack of ispconfig on the server and start the install (quite hart ...after the guide i thought all the extra bits and pieces for linux are like apt-get install .....)

and the problem .
i am also a noob in this server world and the thing that really bugs me is the install questions

got stuck on these:

Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: E.g. 192.168.0.1 (the one on the localnetwork? (server is in a router that has a direct ip) or the direct one and from router set the dmz to the server?
Please enter the host name: E.g. www (here i am lost)
Please enter the domain: E.g. xyz.de (lost also)


i bought the domain (ex server.ro)(do i have to go to the manage of that domain and point it to my server already?)

and what do i enter as hostname?

got stuck here and aborted.....

si it says after every thing i tried invalid url


please help if you have some time and explain it to me
because i was just getting the hang of linux and hate to kick it to the curve and go win2003server

thank you in advance
alexandru R

Use the internal IP-address of your server within your LAN.
For the hostname, use: www
For the domain name use: the domain name (without www) that you've bought. Here, you can also use the internal IP-address of your server and change it later within ISPConfig).

If you don't use DMZ, you don't forget to forward the port you use on your server, like for example:

FTP: 21
SSH: 22
DNS: 53
pop3: 110
smtp: 25
imap: 143
http: 80
https: 443

If you don't forward the ports you use, the services can't be reached from outside.

Within the DNS-records of your domainregistar, you need to set several records.
At least you must point the A-record to the external IP-address of your Internet connection.
Use the MX-10 record for your mail.

It can take some hours before your modifications within the DNS-records will take affect so be patient.

Default thank you

i think i tried that
i mean to put the ip adress of the server from the network
but it still said url not reachable
i'm going to try again now...
at first i won't conf it for the net ...i just need it to run locally to develop som web based content to see how it works out ...so no need to worry about dns propagation..


##########is it a problem if i quit the install at that stage and now i start it again? ##############
i will write back soon to tell the results.
thank you very much for having the patience to explain

The ISPConfig configuration is in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php.
