    What is this about? I get this on Page 4 Step 14 from ispconfig3 ubuntu 12.10 tut.

    Step 14:
    apt-get install apache2 apache2.2-common apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libexpat1 ssl-cert libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-common php5-gd php5-mysql php5-imap phpmyadmin php5-cli php5-cgi libapache2-mod-fcgid apache2-suexec php-pear php-auth php5-mcrypt mcrypt php5-imagick imagemagick libapache2-mod-suphp libruby libapache2-mod-ruby libapache2-mod-python

    The result is this:

    W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/quantal-security/Release.gpg Temporary failure resolving 'security.ubuntu.com'

    thanks

    After I posted I did start to think about my dns settings and checked my resolv.conf and it looks strange.. in that my other server has the dns of my isp and this one has something else. My other server is running an older version os ubuntu so I wondered if this was normal...then I checked and found I couldn't hit anything outside. Maybe i should manually enter my resolv.conf file? It states not to do that when I read the resolv.conf file...thanks


    added note: here is the message within the resolv file:

    # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
    # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN

    I forgot to add this line

    Forgot the bold line:

    address 192.168.0.100
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.0.0
    broadcast 192.168.0.255
    gateway 192.168.0.1
    dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4

    Now all is good. :)

    New Problem

    I get this message when I run: apt-get upgrade

    Get:1 Changelog for python3-distupgrade (http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/change...der/ubuntu-release-upgrader_0.190.4/changelog) [247 kB]
    ubuntu-release-upgrader (1:0.190.4) quantal-proposed; urgency=low

    * Fix command line invocation of "./do-release-upgrade -d"
    LP: #1076186
    * debian/rules: setup.py is only compatible with Python 3, but the
    dh_auto_* commands don't know how to invoke Python 3 yet. So
    disable the up-calls in override_dh_auto_{build,install} since
    they aren't needed, and provide the explicit call for
    override_dh_auto_clean.

    I'm having the same failure resolving problem. My resolv.conf file is
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 8.8.4.4

    Look here>

    Code:
    vi /etc/network/interfaces
    And change the DNS to your DNS:

    Code:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
            address 192.168.0.100
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            network 192.168.0.0
            broadcast 192.168.0.255
            gateway 192.168.0.1

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I am a total newbie at this so can you tell me how I determine my dns-nameservers?
    Thanks

    Richard, I can tell you how I've found my DNS but it depends on where your server resides. If you are running this server out of your local ISP, meaning using your Internet connection from home [i.e. comcast, verizon, AT&T] then you can do one of the following:

    1. From Windows OS, open CMD and run
    Code:
    C:\> ipconfig /all 
    (look for your DNS server) OR
    2. Log into your router and the setting should be there on the main page. OR
    3. Call your ISP and ask them. OR
    4. if you are running it from outside of your ISP (i.e godaddy) then you can get that from their documentation or call them.

    I hope this helps....
