    Hi,
    Am new at using ISPConfig.... I followed one of the tutes and installed it on an ubuntu droplet as well as created digitalocean vanity nameservers using a registered domain. I've created dns zones for my domains and no idea why they are not working.... searched through and read several sites for two days now can't figure out head ...... Anyone who could guide step by step ....

    Thank you.

    When you use the nameservers from Digitalocean for your domain, then you don't have to add a DNS zone in ISPConfig. A DNS tone in ISPConfig is only required when you run your own name servers. You can test the DNS setup of your domain e.g. at intodns.com

    Does that mean...
    1. Create the vanity servers of DO and add the vanity nameservers in the registered domain
    2. Login to ISPCofig and create client + site
    3. Ignore dns zones
    4. Try to browse website

    Thanks
    I decided to rebuild using this tute https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/ispconfig-install-script-debian/
    I've managed to get it going but stuck on emails I cannot reach mydomai.com/webmail but i can see mydomain.com on the browser. I cannot login also vip https://{IP ADDRESS}/webmail though roundcube login shows up. Am using full email as username and its respective password.
    Do I need to ask in new thread or hijack this one.....

    Which error messages do you get in the /var/log/mail.log file when you try to login to RoundCube?

    Ok, that's just the login error. You created a mailbox in ISPConfig in the mail module and you are sure that you use the email address of that mailbox and the correct password? With your new server install, you started from a fresh and empty (minimal) server installation?

    I started with minimal and then ran the auto install script....
    Well I refreshed the passwords and the login worked... do the basic domain dns settings allow one to recieve emails or there are some further configurations?

    Am not also able to access the url mydomain.com/webmail...

    Did you test your DNS tone at intodns.com like I suggested? Does it show any errors?

    I've created several domain on one VPS using Ispconfig --- I can send and recieve internal from all but i don't recieve from external plus i cant do mydomain.com/webmail
    Got errors back ...
    1. ERROR: Some of your DNS servers do not have A records at all. I could not find any A records for the following DNS servers:
    2. WARNING: One or more of your nameservers did not return any of your NS records.
    3. ERROR: Looks like you have less than 2 nameservers. According to RFC2182 section 5 you must have at least 3 nameservers, and no more than 7. Having 2 nameservers is also ok by me.
    4. You should already know that your NS records at your nameservers are missing, so here it is again:
    5. No valid SOA record came back!
    6. Oh well, I did not detect any MX records so you probably don't have any and if you know you should have then they may be missing at your nameservers!
    7. ERROR: I could not get any A records for www.xxxxx.com! --- Added www A record like 3 days ago

    here are the dns zone records

    In your PM you asked me to
    There you write dns zones are not working. But last message on this tread you write
    Which problem is it? Or is it both?
    Anyway, did you read the tutorial on name service setup I gave link to in message #4? There is info on how to check if zone is working.

    I went through the name service set up tute --- the domains are now working i can access on them browser except for one which I ran dns test as asked by Till and posted the results above. From the result I couldn't get why the errors because i'd followed the same steps for the one that are working.
    The other issue is that I cannot access the webmail via alias i.e. mydomain.tld/webmail

    Thank you.

    You are supposed to repair the errors intodns shows. Have you done that?
    I run two commands on my ISPConfig host, what do you get for these commands?
    Code:
    [email protected]:~# grep webmail /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/roundcube.conf
    Alias /webmail /var/lib/roundcube

    So you have the webmail alias twice in that file? Maybe that is the problem?

    One alias is in the config for virtual host listening on port 80 and the other is for port 443.... would that bring issues ...
    Am also still working out the dns errors from above
