    I've installed ispconfig on a centos 4.4 server several months ago, at first no problem in using "Management " ,recently I re-enter the ispconfig with admin,
    but found that when selecting "Management", the right tree did not work, then google the keywords found the same problem :
    on the bottom of this thread a guy nicknamed "cpcpy" , he said no problem when using firefox, so I dl the firefox, it works under firefox, anyone can help ? TIA

    Which browser do you use to access the tree menu that did not work for you?

    HI,till :
    thank you for your attention, I use IE 6.0 , as I said in my post , I downloaded firefox 2.0 & found that "Management Tab" can work under Firefox, all that before (I mean before I found the problem using IE) I had changed the mysql root's password to a new one, and found all went wrong opening, lots of errors ! so I changed MySQL root's back to its old one, then can reopen the main admin page, but I didn't notice if Management tab is Ok using IE, so I google to find a thread which has the same problem as mine, becoz I don't want to reinstall ISPconfig ,so I download a Firefox ,and try to access the admin page of ispconfig, As you can see,Firefox can open the management tab normaly! I didn't changed anything but modified the MySQL's root password.
    Hope you guys understand what I typed,my home language is Chinese. :)

    Recently I found another problem regarding changing a DNS record using ISPconfig's DNS tab, for example, if I create a dns record previously, and now We want to changed the dns name to another , click save, but have no effect in Vhost.conf, the old dns vhost is still there.

    I'm not sure why this happens... :(

    What exactly did you do? Change an IP address?

    maybe what I explained confuses all of you, the problem occurs when changing an existing DNS A record using the DNS management tab, for example, step 1: create a new A record "", then,step 2: change "abcdefg" to a short one "abc", ISPconfig do save that change, but it doesn't change the virtual host settings in the included Vhost_config file.

    You mix up DNS and webserver. Dns Records are stored in the DNS Server (BIND) and not the webserver (apache). So changing a DNS-A Record never changes the webserver configuration file (Vhost_ispconfig.conf).

    If you want to change the webserver, you must edit the co-domain or hostname of the website and not a A-Record in the DNS-Manager.
