    I was trying to solve a problem with 40 second timeout 500 errors today, and in the process, I mucked up some setting, and now neither ISPConfig3 nor phpmyadmin will load. Apache2, fcgid php, mysql and ftp are all working for client sites. I can't find anything in the error or system logs, and I can't find any problems with the files I was tweaking (apache2.conf, fcgid.conf, my.cnf). I even compared them with the files on a VM server that's working OK. A reboot didn't fix the problem.

    System Details: VM Ubuntu Server 9.10, "Perfect Server" setup, ISPConfig, fast cgi, suexec.

    This is the error message when I try to visit http://myserver.com:8080 (for the ispconfig control panel)

    [error] [client my.ip.address] client denied by server configuration: /var/www/clientwebsite.com/web/index.php
    Apparently visits to port 8080 are being routed to a client directory and not to the ispconfig directory

    ran "hostname" and "hostname -f" on a lark, and that fixed the problem. weird.
