    Hello! 1st of all you should all know I am new to this so please be understanding.
    I've recently bought a configuration for a personal mail, web, ftp server
    I have installed Ubuntu Server following this tutorial
    I've managed to log into ISPconfig 3 and configure 3 websites, bot none of them are working
    Today I have changed my server's IP address using sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces from to and now Apache returns 403 Forbidden when accessing via http://ip. Until today it showed "It Works"
    now... let's take this domain for example:
    here is my configuration in ISPconfig
    DNS confign va.jpg
    Sites section va2.jpg va3.jpg
    and server config va4.jpg
    I probably should specify that domain is configured at registrant with nameserver

    Thanks in advance for your help and please let me know what other details are required for your assistance.

    ok. so i've changed the ip's for dns @ rotld thank you for info
    for the record with old ip134 nothing worked they were set the same as they are now but with different ip. nothing worked with 134 ip

    now... all my sites lead to one single directory. i'm guessing ISPConfig has some sort of a problem with virtual hosts?

    then, there is another problem with smtp not starting
    /var/log/mail.err returns fatal: file /etc/postfix/ parameter myhostname: bad parameter value: [email protected]:/tmp/ispconfig3_install/install# php -q install.php

    should i change that?

    Make sure you use the correct IP for your vhosts in ISPConfig. You must use an IP that is shown in the output of

    myhostname = [email protected]:/tmp/ispconfig3_install/install# php -q install.php
    This must be something like
