Default ISPConfig 3 is not loading (along with all websites)

I had set up a box following the instructions from The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 11.04 tutorial. After receiving help from both Falko and Pititis, everything worked nicely.

Last week I turned of the computer and kept it off for a few days. I turned it back on and can SSH into it via Putty (both from inside the network and from outside the network), but I cannot access ISPConfig from http://ipaddressOfMachine:8080. Even the default machine page http://ipaddressOfMachine:80 is not loading.

I restarted the server and the issue is persisting. How to find out what is wrong and how to fix this issue?

Start apache with:

/etc/init.d/apache2 start

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Thank you Till,
This is the outcome.

rishi@ubuntu:~$ /etc/init.d/apache2 start
 * Starting web server apache2                                                  Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf:

Hi ihsir

You can see, that the error is in file /etc/apache2/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf on line 6.

 Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf:
Check the AddType there. If needed, do a google on how it should look like.

To you other questions, errors are always logged within error.log.

Default Solution

The AddType that was in the file was:
AddType application/x-httpd-php.php
It should have been:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
(with a space before the .php).

After making this change (with sudo), rebooted the server and I'm now able to access the sites and ISPConfig.

Thank you all!
