    Hi Guys + Gals,

    I'm trying to setup ISPConfig 3 with two machines thus (Both RHEL5):

    Server 1
    DB Server (only)

    Server 2
    Web server
    File server
    ISPConfig front end server

    I setup Server 1 with MySQL server and installed ISPConfig with the expert option thus:

    Except I said no to:

    Shall this server join an existing ISPConfig multiserver setup (y,n) [n]: <-- y
    and setup all of that stuff.

    Then I setup Server 2 and went through the same thing but I said yes to join current setup, gave it the db details and it connected ok. The DB users have been created on server1 so I guess it's all good.

    When I connect to server 2's ispconfig front end (port 8080 one..) then I can see all the stuff for server 1 but there's no mention of server 1...

    If you look in the server table in the database there's a line for each server so i'm a bit puzzled.

    Another thing is our antivirus listens on port 8081 so I changed the config in /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/000-apps.vhost to 8082 - Does this need updating anywhere in the db?

    Server 2 may not run a interface. Only the master server has a interface and can control all slave servers. Please do not login to the interface on server two as this will destroy the replication.

    If you set server 2 to be a mirror of server one, then ispconfig will mirror all configuration automatically to server 2. The interface on server 2 has to be removed by deleting the ispconfig.vhost file and the /var/www/ispconfig link.

    Ahh ok. I'll remove everything and give it another bash with that setup. Thankyou for your help!

    Just to say thankyou very much for that.

    I set it up again so that server 1 also has apache installed and has the WI installed. All working perfectly now.

    I also changed the port for the apps bit in the servers DB table.
