    I have selected choice (1) that is to use:
    Code:
     https://
    
    Prior to that;

    My host name:
    Code:
    www
    
    Code:
    Domain: futurewealth.com.my
    
    It went on without error...ending..

    Code:
    Server www.futurewealth.com.my:81 (RSA)
    
    ...and message said my ISPConfig is up and running..

    I can access my ISPConfig2 at

    Code:
    https://192.168.0.100:81
    
    But what is the purpose for

    Code:
    www.futurewealth.com.my:81
    
    ?

    Tried entering that domain but went to error not found page..

    By the way my domain www.futurewealth.com.my is hosted in an external server which I have no access of.

    My essential goal is to be able to host a website in

    Code:
    server1.futurewealth.com.my 
    
    which can only be accessed in my house. Any pointers for me would be deeply appreciated.

    Thank you.

    If www.futurewealth.com.my is pointing to another, then of course https://www.futurewealth.com.my:81 cannot work.

    If server1.futurewealth.com.my is pointing to your server, you can use https://server1.futurewealth.com.my :81 to access ISPConfig.

    Is there a way now that I get a new domain and point it to my server? Just worried that since I have set up my server's URL as www.futurewealth.com.my and I have no way out now?

    Read another thread from your forum, he got a domain from DynDNS and it worked for him after pointing to his server. I am not sure if I really have to use DynDNS..

    If I do the same, it will mean that I am able to access ISPConfig2 now at

    Code:
    https://leow.ath.cx:81
    
    yes, I registered the domain leow.ath.cx already.
    
    Am I right? But how do I check where the folder which I want to put all the website files is?

    Is it here

    Code:
    var/www
    
    ?

    Or I just use my existing domain i.e. www.futurewealth.com.my and point it to my server's ip? and I will have access to https://www.futurewealth.com.my:81 as my ISPConfig..?



    Thank you.

    I can access my ISPConfig at
    Code:
    https://leow.ath.cx:81
    
    my server is off now..
    
    Tried downloading and unzipping Drupal in my newly created folder in

    Code:
    /var/www/drupal
    
    I can access the folder in

    Code:
    http://leow.ath.cx/drupal
    
    But, the unzipped folder just - as I opened it from my web browser it didn't show all the files - instead just some php codes plainly written on the web browser..

    Can I just start to run the installation from there?

    *I know this is downright newbie. Any help to just host a site onto my new server I would be really happy enough and grateful enough. Thanks.

    Did you create a web site for leow.ath.cx in ISPConfig, and did you enable PHP for it?

    I had to send my other computer for repair. I will come back to this later, probably after reading all about ISPConfig 2.

    Thanks, Falko.
