Hi HowToForge Forum
I hope you can help as I'm having an absolute nightmare of a couple of days.
I've just purchased a server from OVH and asked for ISPConfig as my control panel. It's not a control I've used before but I've read so much about it over the last couple of years I believed it would be sensible to go with it. Just for the record I am not using the DNS portion of the server as I prefer to keep that seperate. I have changed the corresponding host entries to point to this new server IP though.
I always dive in cautiously on a new server and just add a couple of domains to learn about how it works.
I added a "client" to the system - Client1
then added a new site MySite1.dom to the Sites section under Client1
I then added a new SSH user Client1MySite1DOM
I sshed in, checked i was in the right directory
(NB WebN is my abbreviation not literal)
and amended the index.html to test it resolves and is mapped correctly. It was - WoooHooo
I then added Site2.dom to the Sites section also under Client1.
I added a new SSH user - Client1MySite2Dom
I amended the index.html file for this user after also checking I was in the right directory - I was, Web(N+1)
But..... although the index page was now showing correctly for Site2.dom it was also changed for Site1.dom
I was bemused!
I deleted everything and tried again.
It seems that what ever site I add it becomes the default for all other sites, almost as if each new site I add is a symlink for all other sites.
I'm sure I am being an idiot (as I am quite qualified in that regard) but I can't see where or how.
Do you have any ideas, cos I'd gratefully receive them
