    Hi all!

    I just have a few questions about ISPConfig setup :)

    1. How do i access the files where the "Shared Ip" pages is when i Go sraight to my site. I want to put my hosting website there running on port 80 can the be managed in ispconfig somehow?

    here is my domain: http://www.khost.co.nz

    2.
    How do i set up dns records so i have:

    pop.khost.co.nz (E-mail Inboxes)
    smtp.khost.co.nz (E-Mail sending service)

    3.
    How do i do about getting all my users to have their own website where they have a dns record so they have the domain (name).khost.co.nz

    Finally getting my domain to properly go to my static IP address (Name servers...HUH?)

    Thanks
    Tim.

    The folder is /var/www/sharedip/

    2) Add a A-Record for pop and another A-Record for smtp pointing to the IP of your server.

    3) Create a website for every user with:

    hostname: name
    domain: khost.co.nz

    and enable the create dns checkbox.

    You must create a DNS record for the domain. To find out which name server is responsible for your domain, run
    Code:
    dig ns yourdomain.com

    to create e record for the domain do i go onto my "Manage my domain" place where i set the dns settings? Or is this ISPConfig?

    I guess you do not run your own nameservers, so you will have to add this record in the domain management system of your internet provider.

    yes! i am using my domain provider's name servers pointing to my ip on an A record but none of my subdomains work would this be because i need to have DNS port 53 forwarded and bind9 online?

    In this case you must create DNS records for the subdomains on your registrar's name servers as well.

    Some dns provider due allow you to "glue" your dns servers to their. But you will have to check with your dns provider.

    depends on the dns provider. I know that dyndns has it built in to their web interface. Contact support at your dns provider.
