    This is my first post so I hope I do this right. I followed the perfect setup for Ubuntu Breezy a while back with GREAT success and I'm a big fan if ISPConfig. Even though I've taken every class on linux my community college has, I still consider myself a linux noob.

    I recently wanted to upgrade to a webserver and decided on Dapper Drake with ISPConfig. The only problem I had during installation was a problem I've seen on the boards with the second mysqladmin command:

    mysqladmin -h -u root password yourrootsqlpassword

    which had to be run from in order to be successful, possibly because my router was still pointing to the old server for the domain.

    When I attempted to login to (after repointing the router) there was no website IE could find. I attempted to connect via the local IP and that wasn't successful that way either. When I go directly to the machine's IP, I get the following:


    and attempts to go to the ISPConfig admin page are unsuccessful. I hope I've given enough detail to be of some help. I'd really love to get this machine online... :)

    The ISPC server is listening oke.
    Are you sure your router forwards port 81 to you server (behind the NAT)? It should be
    but I assume this is a typo in the posting on the forum.
    What should work is
    There's no need to obfuscate 192.168 addresses, as these addresses are not reachable from the Internet anyway. The image you attached when you go directly to the machine IP is the regular webserver for your websites and is complete independent from the ISPConfig webserver.

    Yes, that was a typo. Sorry.

    I tried the direct IP address also. My old machine served up the "shared IP" page when I typed in the direct IP address and properly sends me to ISPConfig's admin area when I typed This machine doesn't. They are not sending me to the same directory.

    Have you configured a firewall on the machine that doesn't work? What's the output of
    iptables -L

    Here is the output:

    iptables -L

    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    I can't believe I didn't try this... I'm such a dweeb. :eek: The ISPConfig site answers at: rather than at https, which is how I intended to set it up. Is there a way to change this setting so the ISPConfig tools come up on https instead? Or do I need to reinstall?
