    Good Morning... I have searched the forum for an answer, but being a newbie, I must be missing something. I am setting up a server to host my personal page and act as a picture server for my many family members. Since May, I have set up and rebuilt this server several times using the same settings and steps as I 'play' around with the settings. In the past I haven't had the current problem defined below.

    I have set up an ubuntu (12.04) server with ispconfig3 using the perfect server instructions using

    During the install I received no error messages. I created a new client using my domain registrars dns &

    The problem I have is that when I try to access, it displays the squirrelmail log in and not the default ispconfig3 web page.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    My apologies for not being clear. I can access the ispconf control panel, I cannot access the web page for the client site. I expect to see the default congratulations this is your web page screen, but I get squirrelmail log in instead. This is a clean install, and I have only one client, me. I am accessing the webpage and control panel from outside the local network that hosts the server. I found one similar issue in the forums, but the solution was not the one I need.

    Do you use * or a specific IP address for the website in ISPConfig? If you use *, please try a specific IP.

    My ispconfig set up for looks like this:
    mail A record A record
    www A record MX record NS record NS record

    I have tried different combinations of using the local address 192.168.0.xx using the server address and still no success. the address is the wan address given by my modem.

    I did a fresh install yesterday and still get the same results. I noticed that I had actually had posted the same issue in March 2012 ( and you asked for the output of the document roots ls -la. Here it is:
    [email protected]:/var/www/ ls -la

    Hope this helps

    I'm not talking about DNS, I mean the website settings (the IPv4 drop-down).

    sorry, my misunderstanding. I use the * and tried the specific ip that did the trick. Thanks again falko for the help. This forum and the How To's are a huge help to us who are looking for guidance while learning Linux
