    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for all your hard work.


    the directions have us install MyDNS which I am not familiar with. I have had your setup running on Suse 9 - 11 for years with my own nameserver using bind and the required named.conf.

    I am confused whether ISPConfig and MyDNS together make BIND unnecessary
    or whether if my server is the primary name server, I have to install BIND.

    I am only able to reach one website at a time (the first one set up) with the way it is set up now which I have done by following the directions found here.

    The folder structures are set up as they should be and all vhost files are present in the sites-enabled folder, but when accessing the sites they are being directed improperly.

    Thanks! :)

    ISPConfig 3 supports both MyDNS and BIND. If you want to use BIND, don't install MyDNS and do this instead:

    aptitude install bind9 dnsutils

    So if I use Bind instead of MyDNS what parts of section 13 do I need to follow if any?


    "apt-get install g++ libc6 gcc gawk make texinfo libmysqlclient15-dev"

    and maybe this needs to be changed to reference BIND?

    "vi /etc/init.d/mydns"

    as well as these:

    "chmod +x /etc/init.d/mydns
    update-rc.d mydns defaults "

    Thanks for your help.

    You can completely ignore chapter 13 and do what I posted in post #2.
