Default New Install - Blank page

Hi everyone.

New to ISPConfig so forgiveme . I have followed the guide for installing, created a fresh box and installed right from a blank drive.

Followed this guide (http://www.faqforge.com/category/lin...ls/ispconfig3/)

All seemed to go very well, no errors or deviations from the guide.

Got the very final step, of logging into the ispconfig panel and I just get a blank page, no login or anything.

links / versions etc are from the guide as this was a dry run install to test the software.

Any ideas ?

Thanks
Dan

Ok. Do you get any errors in the apache error log file in /var/log/apache2/ ?

Didn't see anything glaringly obvious..

the page presented at ip:8080 is visually blank and source is just basic

This html page is not from ispconfig. So you must have either acessed the wrong server (e.g. if you used the hostname and that does not point to the IP yet) from your browser or another software is running on port 8080 that delivered this page.

Try to access the server by IP address if you used the hostname and post the output of the command:

netstat -tap

if i goto the IP address of the machine i get the squirrelmail login page, it's only when i goto :8080 do i get that page.

im suspecting something in my apache config. if i goto :8080 i get the blank page, infact, i can put anything on the :8080 and get the same result. ie
:8080/index.htm
:8080/index.php
:8080/fake

all redirect me to this mysterious page.

thanks again

That looks ok so far. Please try a different port for ispconfig. Edit the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/ispconfig.vhost:

vi /etc/apache2/sites-available/ispconfig.vhost

and replace all occurrences of 8080 with e.g. 8888

Then restart apache with:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

and try to reach the controlpanel on port 8888

Hiya,

Replaced them with 8888 and restarted.

My blank page has moved to 8888 now, and 8080 gives me page cannot be displayed.
