    I ran apt-get install phpmyadmin, and when I try to go to, nothing happens. When I try to click the link on a client database to go to phpmyadmin, nothing happens either... Not sure what I did wrong this time.

    All services are now running now, woo hoo!
    I used this to set it up.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. :D

    EDIT: I uninstalled phpmyadmin, and reinstalled it and I'm not sure what happened, but I can't access anymore, nor can I access :(

    To access phpmyadmin, use the IP address or hostname od the server and not the domain of a website that you created in ispconfig.

    Restart apache on the shell. If that dont work, post the error messages that you get in the apache error.log and on the shell.

    I was using the hostname of my server to try to access phpmyadmin.

    It also keeps saying that some of my components are outdated, but im not sure why... when I run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade it says everything is up to date.

    It's also saying my ClamAV is out of date, how do I update that?

    Also, I ran apt-get upgrade and it seems to have upgraded the ftp-server and I thought I ran the commands to disable the upgrade process for that.

    Do you have the line
    deb lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
    in your /etc/apt/sources.list?

    It is now, thanks.

    to solve the FTP issue, should I uninstall the one I have? everything was working until I updated and it replaced the version that I have. :/

    Also, how do I fix the phpmyadmin? It never worked.

    Are you sure that when you removed phpmyadmin, you didn't remove a number of dependent packages on which phpmyadmin relied in the process?

    If that is in fact the case, you have a lot of clean-up work to do!

    I'm not sure where FTP came into the thread; I thought this was about phpmyadmin not working.

    When you state, "when I try to go to, nothing happens", that's not terribly helpful.

    If you see a blank page with no HTML output in the source, then Apache is responding to the request, in which case you should check the domain's log file at /var/www/domain.tld/log/error.log to see why Apache is complaining. It's probably an open_basedir restriction in PHP, or a permissions issue.

    It was about Phpmyadmin not working, but around the same time, that also broke. Why not hit 2 birds with one stone? :p

    I didn't really mean "nothing happens." I'm getting a 404 Error. Not sure why I worded it like that, but whatever.

    Any solutions?

    I would provide more information about what's wrong if I knew what to look for :/

    Sorry to post again, but I was wondering if there's anything else that I should try?
    I don't really know where to begin in troubleshooting the issue.

    Regarding phpmyadmin, please see my post #2. phpmyadmin is accessible trough the default vhost, which is only reachble when the IP is not assigned to a website. Do you select * or the IP address in your websites?
  11. Nolan

    Nolan Member

    * is the only option in there.

    My server was recently restarted, how do I get the MyDNS server back online?


  12. falko

    /etc/init.d/mydns start
  13. Nolan

    Nolan Member

    I don't think MyDNS started, Falko. the Services Status is still reporting it down as of a couple of minutes ago, and I did that command several minutes before that.
    Should I start another thread for the FTP issue? It kind of started around the same time, so I just grouped it into this one.

    Any errors in the logs when you run
    /etc/init.d/mydns restart

    That would be good.

    I'm still experiencing issues with this, so time to go back to this thread

    Okay, I followed the bind and dovecot way of installation this time, and the DNS server is now functioning correctly.

    However when I click the phpmyadmin button next to the database for my site it just says "Oops! This link appears to be broken." My website and ISPconfig are both on the same IP and domain.

    What should I do now?
  17. Nolan

    Nolan Member

    Problem Solved!

    I had to create a symlink so I just did
    cd /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web
    ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin 
    The client and web number may differ depending on which website you want phpmyadmin to load on.
