    I followed the howto here

    have godaddy set up with ns1 and ns2.somedomain.com with the IP address, this domain does nothing but host the ns1 and ns2 entries, it's parked at godaddy exactly as the example is

    I set those as the DNS records for my server

    I created a master with those, along with the A records for www and mail, and the MX for mail.mydomain.com

    I created a site with the name mydomain.com and the user web8_mydomain

    the files for web8 are in /var/www/web8/web

    if I try to go to www.mydomain.com I get a 404 error, if I go to http://mydomain.net I get the

    This IP address is shared. For access to the web site which you look for, enter its address instead of its IP.
    For questions or problems please contact the server administrator.


    if I do
    dig www.mydomain.com I get

    all the IP's look correct to me, .142 and .143 are my nameservers and .142 is the IP for mysomain.net

    I have a feeling there is just some stupid little mistake I made, can anyone offer suggestions? (ignore the instances where I swap between .com and .net it means nothing)

    Did you create an A record for www.mydomain.net (please double-check)?

    What's the output of
    , and what's in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf?

    I did.

    I fiddled around with the server in a couple different configurations so I'm going to re-do the entire perfect setup on a clean install here in a minute and I'll let you know shortly.

    If you change something in DNS, it will take some time until the changes are propagated to the caching namservers. This may take up to 48 hours.

    Even locally? I figured the local stuff would change right away.

    Anyway, it's been running perfectly and I LOVE how the server has been running, added other domains and it's been just awesome.

    Yes, changes should take effect immediately locally.

    cool, thanks.

    I'm sure loving ISPConfig, really cool and easy to work with now that it's set up.
