Default My Perfect (ISPConfig) Server

Thanks for looking.

I recently setup my own perfect server using ubuntu 7.10 by following the instructions in the perfect server tutorial on here. I first of all broke my internet connection and was unable to connect to the updater for ubuntu. I managed to fix that by changing some of the values mentioned in step 7 on this page:

i changed it to this:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
and boom i had my internet connection back.

I setup my ubuntu using server1.example.com as mentioned in the tutorial but when it came to installing ISPC i couldn't use that address as domain it asks for when asking about mysql stuff etc... so i just entered and i can access ISPC using that IP. I'm using virtual box and running ubuntu as a VM on windows xp. I tried entering that ip address to access ISPC from windows but it didnt work.

I now have a domain I would like to use and I have also discovered that my IP address is static. What inside ubuntu/ISPC do i need to change to make my server accessible externally?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, make the IP static and also make sure you have a FQDN registered for your setup.

If you use, you cannot access ISPConfig from the outside. You could've used instead. For the hostname, you could create an A record at your domain registrar (e.g. server1.bimblebox.co.uk) that points to your router's public IP address.

You can change these settings in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php and /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Restart ISPConfig afterwards.
