    Looks as if you dont use the full username of the ftp user. A FTP username consis of the prefix + the username, take a look at the ftp user list in ispconfig, the username incl. prefix is displayed there.

    I lean heavily towards these solutions. It looks like you aren't using the correct username and password. The prefix is part of the username. I have these prefixes turned off in my installation by going to System -> Main Config -> Then delete all of the prefixes out of the 5 boxes and click Save. Now, whenever I create a new user, he doesn't have that prefix as part of his username.

    Thanks Guys
    for being patient with me.
    It was so simple, missing the prefix..I can't believe I missed It.

    Another stupid question. when It says
    does it have to be a domain name =
    or can it be = example.lan

    Can what be = example.lan?

    It has to be subdomain of a existing domain name. So if you own the domain name, then the server name has to be a subdomain of that like or You can not use just as this will block email receiving for that domain and thats most likely not what you want.

    keep the defaults.

    You can change that without reinstall. Change the hostname in /etc/hosts, /etc/postfix/ and in the network configuration ( please see perfect setup guide for instructions, they are at the beginning of the software package install part).
