    So a day ago I had to move some cables, I unplugged the etho cable from my server and plugged in another one. I didn't think much of it because the server has a static IP and everything should* have been okay, I thought.

    The next day Apache2 stopped responding, I could log into the ISPConfig site (port 81) and saw that the Apache service was no longer running, I tried everything to get it started again. Finally I did a reboot hoping that might help... but now I can't log into ISPconfig anymore or anything.

    Whenever I try to start/stop/restart the Apache service it fails.

    Can someone please help? thanks in advance.

    To start ISPConfig, run:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start

    To your apache problem: Which errors do you get in the apache error logfile?

    Have you deleted the directory /root/ispconfig ?

    What is the output of:

    ls /root/ispconfig

    Please run:

    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    and then download the latest ISPConfig installer and run the setup, the installer will update your configuration.

    that seems to have fixed the problem, thank you so much!

    what could have happened to cause that? I want to make sure that doesn't happen again in the future. thanks again for your help!

    Maybe you accidentally deleted /root/ispconfig?
