What's Up with This? I deleted the (2) required dirs again and will now run a fresh install. I'm not mad or anything just a little lost as always. I am behind a linksys router and have a WAN static IP from my provider 216.X.X.X The linksys is the gateways with an ip of 192.168.1.x and the debain box with ISPconfig installed is behind it also on a 192.168.1.x address (these are also static LANS), able to get online ping IP's the whole works. The ports that need forwarding are doing so with no issues. I also have two registered domains fakedomaint.net and fakedomainp.ca I also have a primary name server glued by easydns.com using my static IP however after a new install nslookup cannot see it ns1.fakedomaint.net, however since easydns.com does secondary dns I'm able to load the page. I follow (no webalizer install) the steps located at falktotimme.com for the debian 3.1 setup. In the dir called admin I do the following. tar xvfz ISPConfig*.tar.gz cd install_ispconfig ./setup This part works great. I go through the certification process on the command line and in steps 7 & 8 I say no. I go through the "standard" setup saying yes to postfix and proftp. Please enter your MySQL server: localhost Please enter your MySQL user: etc etc .......then it goes to Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: Do I add my WAN static IP from my provider or my router 192.168.1.x IP and if I make a mistake where do I change it?For the sake of this long question I put in my router assigned address 192.168.1.x, the same address I have in /etc/network/interfaces. (there is no second IP installed there) Please enter the host name (e.g. www):www Please enter the domain: fakedomaint.net I pick https and it says I have connected to MYSQL server, restarts postfix. I get the Congrats screen and it's ready for me to login to https://www.fakedomaint.net:81 I login change my password and am ready to "try" to make some sites. The actual tool is pretty fast I don't have to wait 30 to 60 seconds more like 5-10. My tree looks like this. admin Reseller Clients Sites Recycle Bin The first thing I do is click "New Client" since I want the basics first (Not New Reseller). Group: admin Title: Fakedomaint.net Client Folder: admin, Reseller, Clients, Sites (I leave it as admin) I fill out the information needed in Master Data. I then click SAVE for the purpose of explanation. The tree now looks like this: admin Reseller Clients Sites Recycle Bin fakedomaint.net Client I click "fakedomaint.net Client" in the tree so that I can click the "Site Management" tab. I click the New button Reseller: admin Customer: fakedomaint.net Client Hostingplan: Individual Settings NEXT>>> ISP SITE>>BASIS Group: admin Title: fakedomaint.net Site Folder: admin, Reseller, Clients, Sites (I leave it as admin again) Server: Server 1 Hostname: www Domain: fakedomaint.net IP Address: 192.168.1.x Create DNS: CHECKED Space MB: -1 Traffic MB: -1 Traffic Exceedance: No Action Max.

I click on that IP address then "USER and EMAIL" tab and begin to make an email account.

I click "Save" and now in "USER and EMAIL" I see User Surname Email Admin CatchAll web1_myname my name myname 1 0 NOTE: FOR some reason it had a co-domain listed with the same IP, I deleted that. I also click the "OPTIONS TAB" and mail server says "Local Mail Server" Logsize: 30% DirectoryIndex: index.html index.htm index.php index.php5 index.php4 index.php3 index.shtml index.cgi The SSL tab is also blank just so you know.
