    Everything went well with the installation thank you.

    After starting using the system, I created some clients, sites, and some users for those clients, using Ispconfig. Everything seem to be well, until I rebooted!

    I had no login screen anymore! Apache is running, but Ispconfig does not work!This happend after creating users and rebooting.

    I need serious help. Ican't even login to my system through KDE! I can SSH to the system.

    I think is a problem with /etc/fstab! HELP! PLEASE!!!

    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?

    Restart ISPConfig like this:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
    Then add the appropriate system startup links so that ISPConfig is started at boot time:
    Code:
    chkconfig --levels 235 ispconfig_server on

    Ok, ISPConfig is running now.

    You might have to modify /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server so that its header resembles your other init scripts. Then chkconfig should work.

    Do you get any error messages?
    Make sure your firewall doesn't block port 81.

    I can't login into the system anymore! Fedora! Not Ispconfig!

    I can get Ispconfig through my laptop, and everything is working great!

    You can try to start KDE from the shell with this command:
    Code:
    startx

    xauth: creating new authority file /root/.Xauthority
    xauth: creating new authority file /root/.Xauthority

    Fatal server error:

    Can you kill the existing X processes and run
    Code:
    startx
    again?

    After I deleted the file above and entered:

    startx

    through SSH, it worked; back to normal! But when I close that session through the remote terminal, the xwindows session goes with it. How can I make it a permanent thing?

    Also, after I reboot the system, I still need to reboot ispconfig. What else can i do for this process to start automatically?

    Thanks Again

    This is the message I get every time!

    I still can't get startx at boot!

    You might have to adjust the header of ispconfig_server. Have a look at some other init scripts in /etc/init.d. There must be a section in the header that describes in which runlevels a service should be started. Copy that to ispconfig_server.

    Still No luck

    I can't boot to xwindows! The only way around this is if I logging through ssh on a remote computer and enter the command startx.

    But If I have no computer available, the only way to get to x windows is using the single user mode; otherwise I get a blue screen. No way to enter commands or anything.

    Please help, it's been a while and it is very inconvenient.

    Create an init script like this one (e.g. /etc/init.d/startx):
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    ## header copied from some other init script goes here ##
    
    startx
    Make it executable:
    Code:
    chmod 755 /etc/init.d/startx
    and use the chkconfig tool to make it start at boot.
    Please replace ## header copied from some other init script goes here ## with the header section from some other init script because otherwise chkconfig will fail.

    Please replace ## header copied from some other init script goes here ##

    I've tried to look at different scripts but they all look diffferent. I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to copy from the other scripts. Here is what I have so far, but I get an error saying:

    service startx does not support chkconfig


    Code:
     #!/bin/bash
    # chkconfig: 2345 11 92
    # Source function library.
    . /etc/init.d/functions
    
    
    
    # Source networking configuration
    . /etc/sysconfig/network
    
    # Check that networking is up.
    [ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] && exit 0

    I'm a rookie when it comes to scripting, so if you could be a little more specific it would hep.

    Thanks

    The # chkconfig: part at the top of the init scripts is important.
    I don't have a SuSE system at hand right now, so can you post the contents of another init script here so that I can tell you what you must put into the startx script?
