    Are you sure that your domain has been registered? On the website of SIDN it stated: is vrij

    Is the externalIP your public IP? The IP, shown in the "dns info from starthosting", directs to the website of starthosting.

    Oh yea i forgot to say, i have changed the ip there, but i first wasnt sure about if i should change it to my external ip or to just leave that ip.

    Im a starter with this, now i get on the main url a shared IP page, but that isnt a error page i assume, just a message of multiple site's or something i guess. then i made 1 and 1 address, set them up with ispconfig and they work.
    The only problem i have now is that if a user uploads a file, it goes to the wrong folder... any solution to that?

    for the rest its fixed i think :D

    Did you check the admin checkbox for that user in ISPConfig?

    No, i've tried it with a free domain and if i use the webftp or ftp via total commander (file explorer with ftp build in) i see a "web" folder and in that there's an index file.

    I've placed a index2.html file in it and when browsing to it cant find the file.

    Then i've looked at the folders in /var/www/ and i found out that the ftp is not showing the folders that are used for the website but just an other web folder.
    i believe it uploaded to /var/www/ or something instead of /var/www/web14/web.

    Yes, that happens because your FTP user is not the site admin. Therefore you must check the admin checkbox for that user.

    Take a look at , chapter 2.2.1 step 4 and chapter 2.2.9.

    Oh, didnt know that ..
    Ive seen the site, i realy need to check the documentation, i always skip that step with everything :p but thnx though, ok i only got 2 more question, then everything is clear..
    proftpd is always slow, and the identlookup off ( i think it was that ) didnt work to get it faster, i fixed it a time back but it want identlookup, maybe you know what it was cause i cant find it again..
    and 2nd Q. the domain works if server is just on but after 30 min or so, it redirects me to's domain parking space, do i need to make cname's there?

    thnx falko, you helped me allot at this!!

    Have you tried both active and passive transfers in your FTP client? Might be a firewall problem.

    You must make sure that points to your router's public IP address.

    Falko, i've tried everything you said, and it's starting to work like i want to.
    the stays on, and after 2 hours it still goes to my ip, and the banner says welcome to, so thats fixed :D But my brother had a domain, now if i add that domain it pops the shared ip page :\

    Ive just fired linux op so imma check into it, probable a dns problem or something ..

    Did you create a web site for that domain in ISPConfig?
