    I'm thinking that a fresh install of fedora will solve some of my problems, so I'll reprort back if this issue still persists.

    Okay So I decided to go with what I know, so now I am running an Ubuntu server. The same problem persists.

    I set up all the hostnames and everything properly this time, and I only have one site created. I am now sure that port forwarding and everything on the router end is set for the server's static IP ( I checked on the server, and there is a web1 folder in my /var/www/ and also a www.winrowinc.com folder in /var/www which links to it. The nameservers are correct with the domain, and the user web1_admin has administrator preferences. Ubuntu doesn't have a firewall so nothing is blocking it. It seems as though I've done everything imaginable for this to work, yet it still doesn't.
    So once again I am trying to access it from my local network.

    In dreamweaver I should be able to type in "" as my ftp host right? Not my public IP because that would only be for out of the network correct? Should I try like ftp.thesitename.com or something?
    "Web1_admin" and my password should be the ones I use...
    The host directory should be /var/www/web1

    I've tried it with and without passive ftp
    ISPConfig says all services are up and running, and Ubuntu does as well. I can access the site from ISPConfig's Web-ftp and see the folders.

    What could the problem possibly be?

    You can use any hostname or IP address that is pointing to the server. If you've created a DNS record for ftp.thesitename.com, you can use that.

    Turned out to be a silly mistake like I thought. All the ftp stuff worked, it was just the folder should have been just / since it was already directed to /var/www/ when I put in that user and pass. Thanks for all the help.
