Default Multi server setup

Hi

Sorry in advance this is probably a silly question

OK I am trying to follow the "Multiserver Setup With Dedicated Web, Email, DNS & MySQL Database Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3"

Am I right in assuming that this is all on 1 machine?

If so how do I install the other servers from step 2?

or should I say how do I ssh? or login to the other machines?

so that I can proceed

Hi mrbronz

After this tutorial you will have 5 server, each of them running another service (web, db, mail & 2x dns), so this is on 5 machines.

If you just own one, you can do the same tutorial within OpenVZ or any other VM machine, like I did.

Can you get a bit more detailed on where you stick?

Regards,
MaddinXx

I think you answerd it... I was assuming that this was all on one machine.

I must admit I am a little confused on how to set up a vserver on ISPconfig 3.

I was hoping that I might be able to use the vservers to set up the services, but I cant seem to get the vserver to work.

OK

This sounds to me like you are having 1 dedicated server and want:

ISPConfig on the dedicated server
- to create 5 virtual servers (using ISPConfig)
- and each of these will be for one service

If it's that what you want, you should follow these steps:

1) Follow this tutorial to setup ISPConfig with OpenVZ support on the dedicated server: http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...g-3-debian-6.0

2) Create the 5 VPS using the ISPConfig interface

3) Follow the multi server tutorial from your 1st post on them (forget about the dedicated server).

Attention: In the steps you are setting up the master<->slave relations (primary MySQL access) you should "use" the dedicated server as the master so you can manage all of your servers through it's ISPConfig. OK?

You would than have:

- 1 dedicated server with ISPConfig installed. This will manage the VPS (OpenVZ) (1st tutorial) as well as the services on them (ISPConfig) (2nd tutorial).
- 5 VPS which were created using ISPConfig (see above) (1st tutorial), while always one of them will be used for a service (2nd tutorial).

If you use Squeeze, you shouldn't have those etch lines. Take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...-squeeze-amd64

Not a problem

Oh so you are still on Debian Etch (V4)? If it's a brand new server I recommend you to upgrade to Squeeze, which is stable version at the moment (V6).

I am not 100% sure, but you should be able to follow these steps to upgrade to Squeeze:

Code:
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Remove your entries and add:

Code:
# Offizieller Debian Mirror
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

# Security Updates
deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
After that run:

Code:
apt-get update && apt-get -y upgrade && apt-get -y dist-upgrade
You should than be on Squeeze.

After that, I recommend you to reboot the server and run the tutorials as described.

You can see here, that the package should be available afterwards, as it is in Squeeze repo: http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/l...age-openvz-686

Regards,
MaddinXx

If I use

Code:
apt-get update && apt-get -y upgrade && apt-get -y dist-upgrade
Im getting error "There are problems and -y was used without --force-yes"

So I ran each apt-get individually

Code:
apt-get update
Code:
apt-get upgrade
Code:
apt-get dist-upgrade
However on the last command I get
"Could not perform immediate configuration on 'exim4-daemon-light'. Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)"

I cant figure out if this is a warning or a dead error

I also need to mention Im using Ubuntu server 11.10 I dont know if this is relavant or not

Try following this: http://www.xenetis.org/a_33_probleme...mon-light.html followed by the three apt-get commands.
