Default how to access my 1st site

Hi all,

I have installed ubuntu on my server 11.10 and installed ispConfig 3.0 with the walktrough tutorial on the site. Everything is okay.
So I added my first site via the control panel and now I want to access this site.
Problem is I don't get to access it.

When I go to the public ip address of my site I see the IT WORKS! index default site from apache2.

so i go to http://publicip/www.belseledorp.be to see the index.html file in the /var/www/web/www.belseledorp.be directory.

However I get Error

Quote:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /www.belseledorp.be/ on this server.
Apache/2.2.20 (Ubuntu) Server at stormserver.tcs-computers.be Port 80
Any ideas why this is?

You acn not access a namebased apache vhost by IP address. To access the website www.belseledorp.be in a webbrowser, enter:

http://www.belseledorp.be

into the URL bar of the browser and not http://publicip/www.belseledorp.be

As this is for me a test server I don't own the website www.belseledorp.be

So I don't have dns settings for the domain to point to my publicip

I want to test out all the features of ispConfig

So I created a fictive website. And now I want to access the index page to see all is working.

When you go to http://stormserver.tcs-computers.be
You see the default it works!
So, I need to access the new website

I think this should work.
The ip is 46.19.35.190

No, this can not work. Apache namebased vhosts can not be accessed by IP address.

See here how to access a namebased vhost without valid dns record:

What would be the easiest way to check that my server is running correct and the control pannel is working correct to.

register a domain name?
just for testing purposes?

Why is this that a website is not available via vhost ip?
And the standard website is available via the ip?

When I go to /var/www/ I see index.html -> this is availabel
when I go to /var/www/www.tcs-computers.be/web/index.html -> this is not availalbe. (online I mean) it is availaible in the directorys.

I think it can only have something to do with rights chmod etc...
Do get the site being displayed.

Your server is working correctly. If you want to test it, read the FAQ record I posted above on how to access a namebased vhost.

Thank you so much for you time and willing me to help.

I have changed the /etc/hosts file with my ip and website

It now has
172.X.X.75 stormserver.priv.tcs-computers.be
46.19.35.190 www.besleldorp.be

However when I go to 46.19.35.190 I go to /var/www/index.html
and not to /var/www/www.belseledorp.be/web/index.html (which is the location made be IspConfig)

1) Change the hosts file on your desktop, not server.
2) Enter http://www.besleldorp.be in the URL bar of your Webbrowser and not the IP address.

Hi Till,

Thanks for all the support.
I took the plunge and bought myself a domain name.
Added some dns records to it. And I must say! It seems like working correctly.

Also MySql is working correct and Apache2!



Great great great!!
Wonderfull Control panel so far!
Need to test out some more.
And read the whole 333 pages of the manual :-)
