Can't load initial ISPConfig login page

    I finally got through the ISPConfig process but the :81 page doesn't load. Where would I begin to debug possible reasons, what files, what processes? I can't find an FAQ or article that lists the things to work through to get the login page to display.

    I'm running Ubuntu Gutsy on a VPS, if that helps.

    Any help appreciated!

    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    ? Any errors in the error log in /root/ispconfig/httpd/logs/?

    The error log says this:

    [Fri Mar 28 04:29:18 2008] [alert] ispconfig_httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName
    [Fri Mar 28 04:29:18 2008] [notice] Apache configured -- resuming normal operations

    [Fri Mar 28 05:12:36 2008] [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down

    I've swapped out with xxx and yyy sensitive info.

    Part of what I'm up to is trying to set up a server before re-pointing the domain name to the new server. The HowtoForge article I followed didn't seem to account for that scenario one way or another.

    Appreciate any insights. Thank you!

    ISPConfig isn't running. Please start it:
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start
