Question Server uses 2 differant drive areas

I am new to Linux and have always done Windows Serves. This has been a learning curve for me over the past few weeks. I am getting closer now.
Here is my problem I have Debian installed and I am using Ispconfig3. I have started to FTP files up to see if I had it working correctly and found I do not. Here is the problem. If you go to the site http://letsebid.com you see what I uploaded using FTP, however if you go to http://www.letsebid.com/ or http://173.163.211.236/ you see "It Works" this is telling me I have something wrong pointing to the wrong file area but can not seem to find out what is wrong. Can ne1 help out a nub with this one.

Being new to this and after several attempts by reintalling the software It seems like the problem may have to do with a config file for the apache2 server. I have not found the file yet but I think there is a file that must tell the systhem that letsebid.com is in say /dir/dir1 and telling the system www.letsebid.com is in /dir/dir2
I am not shure but I thougt that ispconfig handled the pointing of the file locations. This is like when I first started learning CP/M years ago
If ne1 can point me in a direction it would help.

Did you select www as auto-subdomain for the letsebid.com web site in ISPConfig?
Did you select a specific IP, or did you select *?

I did try the auto-subdomain but the only ip it shows is the *

Right now the www.letsebid.com is pointing to the /var/www/letsebid.com/web
and the letsebid.com and 137.163.211.236 are pointing to /var/www/web

I have tried it with ubuntu, centos and with debian. Right now I have it up with debian for about my seventh time.

Found how to put in the IP instead of the * and it was working or seened to be. Next thing I know now i can not access the site at all I am getting an error 403

Now that is wierd, my index.html was removed some how. All other files where there but it was gone.

Well Seem to have everything working except one thing. The Email. I thought it was working because outlook checks it ok but I can not send to it or from it. If I try to send to it like info@letsebid.com I get a message back from the server saying no such user yet if I go to ispconfig the user is there and outlook checks the mail for that user ok. If I change the password to the user when i run outlook it chalanges me to the new password so it is partly working. Has any one seen this before? Please help.

OK Wierd I can send from the address just not send to it. <info@letsebid.com>: unknown user: "info"

Default Can not recieve email

Him not sure if this is part of the problem. I can send but can not recieve email from my server. I also just noticed that if i do http://letsebid.com/webmail that I get an error 404. Not sure if Ispconfig is creating all the correct directories or not when I setup my server.

Here is the error I get back when I try to sent to that address:
Reporting-MTA: dns; letsebid.com
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 34AAC1FC4CF
X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822; rtrynor@trynor.net
Arrival-Date: Fri, 5 Nov 2010 08:41:13 -0400 (EDT)

Final-Recipient: rfc822; info@letsebid.com
Original-Recipient: rfc822;info@letsebid.com
Action: failed
Status: 5.1.1
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; unknown user: "info"


Being new to this linix I was woundering should is be looking for the user "info" or "info@letsebid.com" ? Maybe a config file is not right. Everything is working fine I just can not recieve email or use the webmail, but I never need that anyway.

What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf and /etc/mailname? What are the outputs of
Code:
hostname
and
Code:
hostname -f
?
