    Hi,
    My main problem is how do i use the same ip address of the machine that i've installed ISPCONFIG to host my website. The problem am facing now is that i get this message "Shared IP Address" when i try to access using its ip address after site setup.

    I really want to host a web locally as a test site using ISPCONFIG before making any future plan.

    I need to use the same ip for site setup and am new to ISPCONFIG.

    Any help?

    Thats not a problem, you can use the ame IP for ISPConfig and websites on the same server.

    For the shared IP error: Please search the forum for this error message. It is always caused by the same misconfiguration and I post always the same answer, but I refuse to post the answer more then once a day ;)

    May be i dont get clear. I have replaced index.html in sharedip folder with my contents contents but when i login with my user account in web ftp, i cant see my website contents.

    My aim is to administer my site through ISPCONFIG, but manual replacement of index.html with my site contents in SHAREDIP folder, doesn't seems to do the trick for me to access my site through ISPCONFIG.

    This is completely wrong. The shared IP folder is not for websites. Please remove your site from this folder.

    You must access the website that you created in ISPConfig by its domain name and not IP address. If the domain does not exist in DNS, you can add it in the hosts file of your workstatĂ­on.
