    hi, i have a problem installing the latest ISPConfig package. I need to mention that this is a fresh install of CentOS 5.3 but I followed this guide http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_centos5.0 which ended up with no errors following the guide itself, the user who made the guide though did not mention on how to install ISPConfig, he just mentioned that he is using it.

    To get to the point, i have downloaded the package and did the installation using the provided install.php file (
    php -q install.php
    ) even though ISPConfig did not want to install at first because it doesn't know that i am running centos 5.3 and NOT centos 5.2, i had to edit file /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/lib/install.lib.php as described here -> http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33407&highlight=centos

    I got the installation till the end but there was an error with my httpd server, error i received was:

    [warn] NameVirtualHost *:443 has no VirtualHosts
    [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts
    Starting httpd: [FAILED]

    now, i am using a hostname provided by http://freedns.afraid.org/ and i guess that i need to configure appache to use my hostname but i did and it does not work either, httpd fails to start each time. The weird part is that i cannot stop it or restart it, i am running webmin and webmin is running fine and i can access it no problem. ISPConfig on port 8080 is NOT working at all.

    any suggestions on how i can fix this please, I have reisntalled ISPConfig but i get the same problem at the end. Please dont tell me that i have to follow the "official guide" since the official guide dont meet my needs as to the software to use, the official guide for me is only installing ISPConfig, please check the link i provided earlier.

    ISPConfig 3 said the Installation completed but i am not sure why it's not telling me why it can't add the VirtualHosts by himself.

    [warn] NameVirtualHost *:443 has no VirtualHosts
    [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts
    Starting httpd: [FAILED]

    Do this:

    create the virtual server for _default_:80, *:80, etc as needed...
    with WEBMIN or open /etc/http/conf/httpd.conf and add
    NameVirtualHost *:80
    NameVirtualHost *:443
    <VirtualHost _default_:80>

    Web-Server: Offline error or BUG?

    ERROR: @ Monitor/Server State/Show Services....
    Server: server.webserver.com
    State: error

    so I restarted the services:

    SMTP-Server: Online
    after /etc/init.d/postfix restart

    Web-Server: Offline
    after /etc/init.d/httpd restart

    I checked and the apache server is online...
    [[email protected] ~]$ su root
    Password: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    [[email protected] user]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
    Stopping httpd: [ OK ]
    Starting httpd: [ OK ]
    [[email protected] user]# exit

    Any clues way ISPCONFIG can not detect that the apache server is online??
    Thanks in advance

    I did what you wrote and it works for the apache server problem not starting up. But also the problem is that i am unable to find if ISPConfig 3 is running or not, i tried connecting to the port i choosed when installing it but it doesn't come up in my browser.

    Please make sure that you are not running any firewals that block this port.

    i am not running any firewalls. (system-config-securitylevel disabled)

    I followed the guide http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-5.2-ispconfig-3-p6 and installed every packages listed there besides PureFTPd. I disabled the firewall at the beginning of the tutorial and rebooted the system. But like before, ISPConfig 3 tells me it has been installed successfully but yet i cannot see any login page from the port i choosed in installation.

    I noticed this Apache error
    from fedora.lib.php the line contains the following
                foreach($records as $rec) {
            // copy('tpl/apache_ispconfig.conf.master',$vhost_conf_dir.'/ispconfig.conf');
    $content rf("tpl/apache_ispconfig.conf.master");
    $records $this->db->queryAllRecords("SELECT * FROM server_ip WHERE server_id = ".$conf["server_id"]." AND virtualhost = 'y'");
    count($records) > 0) {
    $records as $rec) {
    $content .= "NameVirtualHost ".$rec["ip_address"].":80\n";
    $content .= "NameVirtualHost ".$rec["ip_address"].":443\n";
    my httpd.conf contains the following at the end
    any ideas ?


    i added the following to the end of my httpd.conf file
    and now when i try to access ISPConfig login page using the domain name i choosed, internet explorer downloads a file named my domain.name[1] and inside that file i have this:

    i think apache isn't loading PHP scripts properly... i just checked phpmyadmin and it gives me a text page instead of the index page coded in php.
