    In Ispconfig on OpenSuse 12 with Apache I have the following problems:

    Problem 1.

    When i try to access
    the browser is not showing anything and php file is downloaded (The "Save as" Window appear).
    The problem appeared after my first site was created. Before that everything was great.
    Any idea?

    Problem 2.

    On the address http://My_IP the browser return my first site (in alphabetical order, not web1)
    For this problem I found an answer here:

    This is a solution but I don't think this is the best.

    My server was installed using this tutorial:
    EDIT: single server setup

    Thank You in advance!

    @Problem 2:
    This is the correct solution. You have to enable the default vhost and put your default site there.

    I think the problem is about permission of /srv/www/htdocs folder because I made an experiment:
    1. Moved folder phpMyAdmin inside to mydomain (/srv/www/clients/client1/web1/web),
    2. removed (comment) symlink from /etc/apcahe2/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf
    3. Trying to access

    Everything was OK.

    So accesing php file from /srv/www/htdocs php script is not executed
    Accesing from /srv/www/clients/client1/web1/web everything is OK

    What's the problem? Anybody can help me?

    I think php is not enabled in the main web directory /srv/www so it can not execute php scripts in there.
    If you need this you have to create the corresponding php settings for modphp, fcgi etc. in the default vhost.

    Phpmyadmin or webmail is working fine only in mod-php mode.

    OK. I made another (little) step.

    Phpmyadmin or webmail is working fine only in mod-php mode.

    When I switch to Fast-CGI, CGI, Su-PHP, or PHP-FPM the appear.
    So, what should I do? What's the problem?
    Can You Help Me?

    Thank You!

    PS: At the time of installation I chose to change the ISPConfig listen port setting from 8081 (default) to 9091 (my custom port) for instance. Can this be the cause of my problems?
    I ask that because in /etc/apache2/sites-available/apps.vhost the port remain 8081 and changing to my new port 9091 apache failed to start.

    The port 8081 is the apps vhost. (/var/www/apps)
    The port 8080 (or 9091 in your case) is only ISPConfig interface.
