    Hello,

    I try to set up a new ISPConfig system with Centos 5. After a normal install (first 2 pages of the perfect install) I tried to update the instalation with "yum update", but it look's like it's hanging on "setting up repositories".
    Off course I imported the rpm-gpg key. I also can ping outside the network and also can contact the server with putty.

    I never had this problem with my other Centos (4.3 and 4.4) Servers so maby it's a version 5 problem? They also run into aVMWare server enviremont.

    How long did you wait? It may take some time when the repositories are very busy.

    I waited about 30 minutes with this text as the result.

    ====
    [root@narcis ~]# yum update
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Update Process
    Setting up repositories
    Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=os error was
    [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (110, 'Connection timed out')>
    Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
    [root@narcis ~]#
    ====

    As I said before:

    - I can login with ssh
    - I can also ping outside the network, like for instance ispconfig.com

    I really don't have a clue what's wrong.

    I also tried to install CentOs 4.5 but also no go. After that I tried Debian Etch and everything went well.

    What's happened?????

    Please make sure that the nameservers listed in /etc/resolv.conf are reachable from your server.

    --15:53:23-- http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5
    Resolving mirrorlist.centos.org.. failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.

    I have checked my /etc/resolv.conf files and have even add both my route at 10.0.0.1 and my ISP's DNS Server's in their also.

    But still error's

    What should the ARCH setting in resolv.conf be.

    Mine was mad2.co.uk I am sure that is not correct

    I have it working now.

    Please try this in your /etc/resolv.conf:
    Code:
    nameserver 145.253.2.75
    nameserver 193.174.32.18
