Default Beginner needs help.

Hello all. I've installed centOS on my home server hoping to create a dedicated website for my home. I followed the easy and beginner friendly guide created by Falko, The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.2 x86_64 With nginx [ISPConfig 3]. Installation was simple. It is running fresh on my comp under a domain name purchased and configured to forward to the external ip address of my server.

I am just having issues finding how to edit the html files without using a command prompt to manually type my index.html page. How do I use ispconfig to edit these settings. keep in mind I am semi-new.

1) Login to ispconfig, go to the sites module and add a new ftp user for the website.
2) Get a FTP program, w.g. fireftp and upload or edit your website.

I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve / edit.

This sounds right. Going to try it out. I did not realize it was a seperate application. I was looking for some sort of editor in ispconfig... Excited to get to work on it soon. Thanks for the reply.

Default stuck again

Hello. I wasn't sure if I should create a new thread or not as I have another question but unrelated to the first post. Anyways, I decided to just reply...

I decided to start fresh with a new install of everything (following falko's guide again) as I had messed around a lot with my last install just testing things and experimenting. Long story short, I figured a reinstall would be quicker than going though and resetting/deleting everything I shouldn't have installed or changed.

So once again, perfect install. no problems there. I have a fresh install, I did everything I had learned from the last one but I'm just missing something. When I go to my website lets say example.com, I get the blue "Welcome to nginx on EPEL!" page rather than the green page I think I should have gotten. So when I uploaded my website, it only displays the nginx page.

I know I'm just missing some minor step but Ive been searching for hours and nothing has come up, nor can i remember what I did before... :/

Thanks ahead of time.

You should select a specific IP address in the IP address field instead of *. You can add IP addresses under System.

Doesn't seem to have worked. I added the ip address 192.168.0.111 (I use 192.168.0.110 as my machines local ip)and changed my website IPv4-Address to 192.168.0.111. Then I went into my system and added eth0:0 (as instructed by Falkos ISPconfig manual) configuring it as the guide instructed me. (My eth0 had several more options than the example did).

Not sure if I did that right, nothing changed when I visit my site. Additionally, when I type ifconfig it displays "interrupt: 23" after eth0 and eth0:0. I do not thing this came up before adding eth0:0 but I'm not sure.

Can you post the
Code:
ifconfig
output?

Does the domain's DNS record (or the hosts file entry on your client PC) to 192.168.0.111?

[root@tj ~]#

Not sure if this is needed either but my /etc/hosts file is the following

127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
192.168.0.110 tj.server.com tj
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

Should I add one for 192.168.0.111?

I would guess adding the following line

"192.168.0.111 'example.com'" //where example.com is the domain name for the site

You must add this to your client PC's hosts file: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...s+file+windows
