    This looks all fine. Are you sure that your local dns server is authoritive for the domain? Also make sure, that you use external and not internal IP addresses in the dns settings.

    I'm having similar problems. I'm using an external IP Address though.

    How do you make your local dns server an authoritive for the domain? Not sure what you mean there.

    I used that guide step by step before setting up the perfect server set up with debian etch (which went very well as a copy and paste server set up) before setting up ispconfig and making a new site.

    Here are some debug outputs from my server:


    server1:/home/admispconfig/ispconfig# dig @localhost safetytg.com
    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> @localhost safetytg.com
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 40494
    ;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 1

    safetytg.com.           86400   IN      A
    safetytg.com.           86400   IN      NS      www.safetytg.com.

    I'm not sure what else I can check to get the site reached from outside. Thanks also

    When I check the site from outside my network I get http error 500

    The picture is of the godaddy's dns record for the site

    So what else can I do to test or what other files can I check? I'm still getting a http server error 500 when trying to see the site from outside the network. Thanks in advance for help :)

    It is the first time that you say that you get a 500 error. This error is not related with DNS in any way.

    Have a look in the error log of the website to get the detailed error message.

    That fixed it. I checked the website log under /var/www/www.safetytg.com/log/error.log and it was a huge blunder on my part on a misplaced .htaccess file. I moved that file to the right location and now all is well with reaching the site from outside the network. Now to start chipping away at that blasted mail server :)

    Much love man, thanks
