    New clients do not work

    I installed ISPconfig3 on CentOS 5.3 with most recent howto on howto forge. Most seems to work, except the following:

    When I add a new client, the client is made in ISPConfig.
    Then I login with the credentials of this new user, and add an FTP user in order to start FTP'ing to the website.

    FTP user credentials are not accepted however...
    When I look into phpmyadmin i see the following path for client and client's FTP user:
    Documentroot: /var/www/clients/client2/web2

    When I SSH to the server and look in the www area i find no folder like clients. So I expect this to be the error.
    Why is the user not created correctly on the server? or is something else wrong?

    thanks for any help!

    Take a look at the syslog in the monitor to check if there are any errors.

    Please post the output of:

    ls -la /var/www

    does this entry go away after a few minutes and what is the status of this entry?

    jobque entry stays there, i noticed there are many entries still in the jobque, they don't go away (oldest is 3 days old)
    I just realize that jobQUE means all these actions are on que still??

    Yes, this explains your problem as there are just no FTP accounts and websites yet. This means that there must be an fatal error which stops the processing.

    Please run the folowing commands on the shell as root user and post the output:

    rm -f /usr/local/ispconfig/server/temp/.ispconfig_lock
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/server.sh

    Jobque is empty now, and folders with client1 an client2 are created now.
    client1 is empty (but i deleted that one earlier) and folder client 2 seems to be completely set-up now..
    For the learning process, what went wrong in the installation procedure?

    Edit: FTP works fine now as well!

    Looks as if your server is not executing any cronjobs. Cron is normally installed on all linux systems by default, maybe it is not installed on your server?

    The CentOS 5.3 on my vps did not have crontabs installed indeed!!
    fixed it now!
