Installed Perfect Server for Hardy Heron 8.04 from this guide: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu8.04-lts Installed ISP Config from this guide: http://www.ispconfig.org/manual_installation.htm Now when I access the ISPConfig page from 192.168.2.11:81 i can't get past the login page without a "ERROR 101: wrong username or password." when I try to enter the default admin admin Same thing from localhost:81 I can't access the page with the recommended http://www.xyz.de:81 (which is the default host name and domain used for the install). I have tried to reinstall over the initial installation which only made it worse because then I couldn't even browse to the login page. I uninstalled ISPConfig and reinstalled with the original resulting error message. The only thing I know I missed is in the last section of the ISPConfig guide when it advises the proper course of action for dealing with quota, the referenced "/home" file does not exist in my copy of /etc/fstab so I am not able to apply the advised edit. netstat -tap output [email protected] Active Internet connections (servers and established) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 6930/mysqld tcp 0 0 *:www *:* LISTEN 6005/apache2 tcp 0 0 *:81 *:* LISTEN 29675/ispconfig_htt tcp 0 0 server1.example.:domain *:* LISTEN 5101/named tcp 0 0 localhost.locald:domain *:* LISTEN 5101/named tcp 0 0 localhost.localdoma:ipp *:* LISTEN 5456/cupsd tcp 0 0 *:smtp *:* LISTEN 29579/master tcp 0 0 localhost.localdoma:953 *:* LISTEN 5101/named tcp 0 0 *:https *:* LISTEN 6005/apache2 tcp 0 0 server1.example.com:81 server1.example.c:39316 TIME_WAIT - tcp6 0 0 [::]:imaps [::]:* LISTEN 5389/couriertcpd tcp6 0 0 [::]op3s [::]:* LISTEN 5429/couriertcpd tcp6 0 0 [::]op3 [::]:* LISTEN 5406/couriertcpd tcp6 0 0 [::]:imap2 [::]:* LISTEN 5365/couriertcpd tcp6 0 0 [::]:ftp [::]:* LISTEN 29622/proftpd: (acc tcp6 0 0 [::]:domain [::]:* LISTEN 5101/named tcp6 0 0 [::]:ssh [::]:* LISTEN 5126/sshd tcp6 0 0 [::]:smtp [::]:* LISTEN 29579/master tcp6 0 0 ip6-localhost:953 [::]:* LISTEN 5101/named [email protected] I checked my config.inc.php file but don't see anything obvious in there. hosts file: 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 192.168.2.11 server1.example.com server1 # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters ff02::3 ip6-allhosts I'm almost positive that something of this nature must be a simple fix - something I've missed along the way. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'm on a very steep learning curve here.
