    how can I browse a site that I created under a reseller account? I'm new to linux and just installed this app to see its features and got my site setup but would like to be able to browse to it with the ip, its on a private network. I've tried and it didn't work but if I browse using the dns I setup in the wizard I can see the default page. Thanks

    You cannot use IP addresses because ISPConfig configures name-based virtual hosts, so you must always use the appropriate FQDN to browse the web site. If you're in a LAN, you can either set up a DNS server, create DNS records for your domains on it, and configure your client PCs to use it as the primary DNS server, or you change your client PCs' hosts file: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=432&highlight=hosts+file+windows
