    Alright, before I begin; I'd like to thank the creators of HowToForge and ISPConfig3 - Your guides have allowed me to create a great intranet server that I can now use to do securely do development of my site. Since my site is non-profit and a hobby; finding an easy to use and comprehensive tutorial for setup that did not cost me an arm and a leg to get access to was crucial. I have plans to become a subscriber as soon as I can, and have already bought the manual. However, still waiting for the link to come through.

    While I wait, I need to fill a few holes in my configuration. Everything seems to work with DNS, and my site is now loading with www.routh.home; client setup and subsites work as well, and I already have a user created called amateurwriting, and the site loads under amateurwriting.routh.home as expected as well.

    I have the following problems:

    1. Despite the obvious fact that apache is up and running (no errors or problems with it restarting); Monitor claims that apache is offline. I have noticed that apache is not listening on port 80, however I am uncertain if that can be true as it clearly is responding to http requests.

    2. The MySQL server is reporting as offline as well, and it is showing in netstat -tap.

    3. When I create clients, their default account does not seem to have proper FTP access enabled. FTP recognizes the user, but rejects login with error 503.
    When a new user is created (amateurwriting-ftp for example) - FTP works perfectly, and the user is chrooted (I chose to install JailBreak) as epected. However I would like the main account to have FTP access (amateurwriting)

    I followed: The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 10.10 [ISPConfig 3]
    The Following is my netstat -tap result:

    Additional Note

    I have notice that SSH access is not being enabled for clients either, like FTP a sub account must be created.

    1+2) Please check the /etc/hopsts file and ensure that it contains a vlaid line for "localhost"

    3) There is no such thing as a defualt FTP user in ispconfig 3. FTP users are virtual users in mysql only. You seem to mix up SSH users with FTP users here.
