    I've searched the archives top to bottom but I'm looking for a little clarity on how to properly set up ISPConfig to use as a test box as I'm a bit confused. Hopefully you guys can confirm I'm on the right path.

    I have a static IP on a box behind a router (pointing out to port 80), in which I've installed CentOS 4.3 and ISPConfig. From what I understand, I need to set up a Client, Hosting Plan and then a Site. All of which, I've done. The goal of this site is to use a subdomain of my regular site as a test box and bind the IP of the test box to the sub-domain.

    At this point, when I go to my URL: test.mysite.com, the site is not found. However, when i used my IP, 10.250.45.11, gets me the Shared IP message.

    From reading in the forums, I then need to configure my DNS to have the site appear. First, I checked that my router is pointing to 80, and it is. So I remove all my DNS config from ISPConfig and go to my hosting service. My hosting is a DV service from media temple. I set up subdomain at media temple for me: test.mysite.com and assigned an A record with 10.250.45.11 as the IP. However, the DNS still hasn't hooked on and I'm still getting the Shared IP.

    Am I on the right track? What do I need to do to allow for this box to be setup as a test box? At this point, i'm not sure.

    here is my vhosts, just in case: (note, I've replaced my url with mysite)

    Code:
    
    [root@test vhosts]# more Vhosts_ispconfig.conf

    You must use your router's public IP address in the DNS record, not your private IP address.

    What's the ouput of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    ?
