    Hi,
    I am running ISPConfig 2.2.29 on Fedora 9
    Everything is working great sites, mail, ftp.
    This is what I did that caused the login problem.
    I checked the "maildir" box on the general tab in the panel but didn't check it on any of the sites.
    Now when I go to https://cns1.myserver.com:81 I get the logon screen, I put in admin and pass and it seems to just reload the login panel, I get no errors for wrong pass or password it just doesn't load into the application.
    My hope is that you could tell me what line instruction I can alter to uncheck that panel and get me back in.
    Thank you

    The maildir checkbox is not related to the ispconfig login, so that could not have caused the problem. Did you change anything else outside of ispconfig like the mysql root password?

    Thank you Till,

    Password is still the same and I have actually checked all that, all logins even for sites do not work either.
    This is the other thing I did, "now that I think about it".

    {{{ "(COPY AND PASTED FROM "HOW TO FORGE") After you have installed ISPConfig, you must modify the template file for /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf which is called /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.master, because otherwise the users that you create with ISPConfig won't be able to log in using FTP. Instead of modifying /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.master (which gets overwritten each time you update ISPConfig) we copy /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.master to /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/ and modify that one. If ISPConfig finds a template in /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/, it will use that one instead of the default template in /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/. Templates in /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/ don't get overwritten when you update ISPConfig.

    cp /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.master /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/

    Now open /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.master and comment out the DefaultAddress 127.0.0.1 line:

    vi /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.master"}}}

    I did the copy and commented out the Local?

    I did this after adding my sites though?

    Thank you

    Changing this template should not be nescesary normally. When you remove it, webftp will fail. You should remove the customized template.

    To the ispconfig login problem: Please post the output of:

    netstat -tap

    Thats ok so far.

    Please try to login to mysql with the command:

    mysql -h localhost -u root -p

    and then enter the mysql root password when requested.

    Thank you Till
    my login seems to work fine for MySQL
    I said in my firstpost that ftp work's ok but thats not entirely true, ftp is working but I am not able to log on with user and pass only anonamous.
    I get a 530 user incorrect, I was on these sites prior to this problem uploading via ftp so I know they did work?

    Should I just reinstall ISPConfig at this point, I'm pretty fast at it by this point, Lol. A yum update wouldn't have been a cause would it?
    I appologize for the obvious Nubi Linux Questions
    I always use vi for editing and can not recall any editing except the work done, during install, this was a 3 day old install. From what I remember I only used the panel for any changes?.
    I appreciate the help and unless you think further post may benefit others I don't mind reloading.
    Let me know what log if any may tell me why login seems to just kick me back to login without any error?

    Thank you

    A yum update can cause this, if yum overrides or destrois some existing configuration, but normally yum does not harm anything except the bind configuration. The easiest solution might be a reinstall.
