    Hi everyone,

    This is my 3rd or 4th try at this installation and i get all confused for what to put for the following information, i tried it once but nothing was written to the database.

    Please enter your MySQL server: E.G. localhost
    Please enter your MySQL user: E.G. root
    Please enter your MySQL password: Your MySQL password
    Please enter a name for the ISPConfig database: E.g. ispconfigdb
    Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: E.g.
    Please enter the host name: E.g. www
    Please enter the domain: E.g.
    Please select the protocol (http or https (SSL encryption)) to use to access the ISPConfig system: If you want to use your control panel with SSL, select 1. You can then access it under If you want to access it under, choose 2.

    Okay, I believe that the mysql server would be localhost, username i have set up as root, and the password. The database i have created is ispconfigdb. I do not know what to put for the ip address. All of the computers on my network start with and the ip address of my server is, but i'm not sure if its talking about the public ip address (which changes cause of dynamic). The host name i put was www and the domain is The protocol i chose was https

    So what am i doing wrong? Thanks

    I think you'll have to put in the internal IP. In case of a static IP the internal will be the same as the external. Then configure your router to forward the external request to the internal IP.

    The other settings you described should be fine this way.

    Did you check if you can reach the server with the IP rather than the domain name?
