Question cannot login via ssh after installation

hello!

i'm in trouble! i have no idea anymore how to solve the problem - but i can login to the server with a repair-system... i would be really happy if someone could give me a hint why the server is not booting correctly, or which files i could/should edit to solve the problem!

i've installed ISPConfig after I had installed debian sarge. i used this perfect installation instructions. everything was working fine...
but after i did a restart of my vps i'm not able to log in via ssh anymore

the server is starting and the last thing i'm able to do is to write the password.
the last thing the server is telling me:
"System bootup in progress - please wait"

afterwards nothing happens anymore... it's not possible to ping the server...

i thought that maybe it's a quota related problem... because the only step i did not managed to do was to end the instructions related to quoata:

quotacheck -avugm
quotaon -avug

i was thinking (have to stop this...) that i could do it after finishing the installation, because i'm on a VPS where i'm not able to use "mount" while running the server - if i have to do everything again i know now i have to reboot instead...

besides of that, i installed the Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3 first, and then i removed "courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl" again, and i repeated the instructions "Postfix/POP3/IMAP" .... after doing "ehlo localhost" everything seems to be fine...

looking foreward...

sone

Maybe it has to do with your network settings? Go into the repair system and have a look at these.

Hello,
You have to modifiy the sshd configuration by editing /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
Replace this line
Code:
PasswordAuthentication no
by this one
Code:
PasswordAuthentication yes
then restart ssh (/etc/init.d/ssh restart).
For me it works, I hope for you too !

hello!

i have changed the sshd_config as mentioned but without success...

the sshd_config of the repairsystem is the same as of the "normal"-system.

of course it eventually has to do with the network settings. but i do not know which exactly could be responsible for the failure. any hints??
i tried to change the hosts file. the format seems to be simple, but i'm confused because in the net there are really different explanations and formats... at least it looks like...

here is my host file:

---

127.0.0.1 qualia localhost localhost.localdomain
85.119.152.64 qualia quale.de qualia.quale.de

---

and here are the last few words my server is telling me at login - then nothing happens...:

---

RSA key fingerprint is .....
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added '85.119.152.64' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.

---

maybe the configuration of the setup of the ISPConfig and/or the openssl key genaration has something to do with it?

i think i will reinstall and redo everthing, following the perfect setup instructions again. einmal ist keinmal while repeating may i will learn something...

Hi Falko,

no, I didn't receive any error message during installation....

Installation ends and I get a message where i read that ISP Config server is starting.

After some seconds PUTTY lost SSH connection and I can't SSH access anymore: I have to restore backup...

Thanks
Mark

Hm, maybe because of $go_info["server"]["network_config"] in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php.
You could use a rescue CD and set that variable to 0. Or you do it (before you install ISPConfig) in the file install_ispconfig/config.inc.php.tmp.
