Default Website of Created User not working and Webmail Login Problem

Hi,

I've managed to find answers to most of my questions so far, apart from these two.

Problem 1.

After creating a client and the relevant dns entries, internally the website gets pointed to the "It Works!" page rather then the actual website i've uploaded. Externally some get that page and others get an access forbidden page and another computer got the shared IP error page.

This is what the dig results posted
; <<>> DiG 9.3.1 <<>> www.crac-transport.co.nr
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 37670
;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;www.crac-transport.co.nr. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
www.crac-transport.co.nr. 86400 IN A 149.135.3.41

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
www.crac-transport.co.nr. 86400 IN NS www.crac-transport.co.nr.

;; Query time: 13 msec
;; SERVER: 10.1.1.15#53(10.1.1.15)
;; WHEN: Mon Feb 27 13:41:51 2006
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 72

I have created a user with administrator flagged and uploaded via ftp using that administrator.

Problem 2.

When i try to login to webmail with that user to the email using the email adress (chris@crac-transport.co.nr) it says:

Invalid Login

Password incorrect! Please go back and try again.

that is when i access it from:

http://www.crac-transport.co.nr/webmail/

but i can log in fine from the server's private address. I am also able to send mail with it, but as yet nothing has been received. Although haven't gotten any bounced messages.

I have flagged mail directory. And i checked:

tail: cannot open `/var/log/mail.info' for reading: No such file or directory
==> / <==
tail: error reading `/': Is a directory
tail: /: cannot follow end of this type of file; giving up on this name
tail: cannot open `warn' for reading: No such file or directory
tail: no files remaining


I have poured through the forums for answers and tried everything i could think of! So any help would be much appreciated.

I have created a user with administrator flagged and uploaded via ftp using that administrator.
I get "Access forbidden!". What directory did you upload to? Did you follow this tutorial? http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_mandriva_2006

The mail log is /var/log/mail/info in Mandriva.
Please post the output of
Code:
netstat -tap

Yep, followed that setup to a T... well I'm pretty sure I did, not impossible that I missed something.

I have uploaded via ftp using the admin account i created for the site. I placed the site into the "web" folder. Internally I get a page that says "It Works!" in bold letters, although other machines on the network get the shared IP page or the forbidden page (tryed refresh and clearing out cache). It seems externally the same variety occurs!

One thing I have noticed, when I log in via ftp, under the owner colum there is a question mark on everything bar the "Maildir" which is root.

You're using a POP3/IMAP daemon that uses the mbox format. Please make sure that you did not enable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email in ISPConfig.

Yep had ticked the maildir flag! Mail seems to be working internally between accounts. Still don't seem to be receiving mail externally.

Thats a step forward I guess

As for the website it still puzzles me, internally its still doesn't seem to provide the right page! And each computer brings up a different error (shared accomodation, a few systems here and various notebooks) whether it be the shared IP page, "It Works!" Page or Access forbidden!

Thanks for your response!

Well I think I have most of it figured out!

Problem 1

DNS Related, I can now get it to work internally! I think the .co.nr is only a redirecting mob, so I will have to wait till I can afford to register a proper domain till i can get anything working externally. Which I planned to do anyway.

Problem 2

Same! Plus I had the maildir flagged

Thanks for your help
