    I am trying to setup and restore a PHPLD directory database. I created a site, created the database (and user), but when I click on the little db icon to the right of the database - the rollover says ""- I get the Firefox default

    Server not found
    Firefox can't find the server at

    BTW, My port is set to 8088 to stop conflicts with my router, and in this case I am logging in as a customer by going to, if that matters

    Thanks for any insight

    Please set the correct URL to your phpmyadmin installation in ispconfig under system > interface config. The URL is normally something like:

    without a port and use the IP and not the server URL.

    Do I use an internal or external ip? Neither seems to work. When I change the ip in interface config, log out, log back in as customer, the icon (left of the wrench) rollover still shows the external ip and port (http://68.113.x.x:8088/sites/database_phpmyadmin.php?id=6) no matter which Ip I entered into the interface config. And clicking gives a timeout or server not found error.

    Do I need to restart the system after entering the changes (throwback to Windows). Am I attempting to get to PHPMyAdmin incorrectly? I have deleted and recreated the db each time I changed the ip address.

    ** new info: Even though the rollover shows the URL above, when I have the internal IP in interface config, the bottom of the browser bar says "connecting to 192.168.1...." before timing out.

    More info

    Still having issues with this. I may have a little more info.

    I checked my /etc/hosts files and see this: localhost.localdomain localhost server1

    Shouldn't that second line have something else? 192.168.1.x or something?

    The URL looks wrong to me - should be instead of

    You can try that.

    My mistake


    You are correct on the url. That was a typo on my part. I will try altering the hosts file.

    Still no luck

    Any other ideas? I'm stumped. But then that's not hard.

    Can you tell me where to look to investigate the problem? A PhpMyAdmin config file somewhere?

    I looked in /etc/dbconfig-common/phpmyadmin.conf and can't see anything that might help

    Maybe an idea

    When I looked in


    it has dbc_user='phpmyadmin'

    But in


    it shows a clientbd_user = 'root'

    Could this be the issue?

    Which distribution do you use? Which guide (URL) did you use to set up the system?

    Any ideas?

    I haven't heard a response in a while. I really don't want to start over if I can help it.

    Well, I'm running out of ideas... :(

    Reinstall PhpMyadmin?

    Do you think a reinstall of PHPMyadmin might fix things? Or make more problems?

    I think this is a PHPMyadmin issue alone.

    Another possible clue

    When I go to (external ip address)

    I get a 404 error.

    When I go to just:

    I get the home page of a website, actually the only website, that I set up through ISPConfig.

    Should it not be some sort of default ISPconfig page on the ip?

    Perhaps one more clue

    Sorry for the multiple posts.

    I restarted Apache and got this:

    [warn] NameVirtualHost has no VirtualHosts

    Have I stumped the experts?

    I don't know whether to be proud or ashamed. I really don't want to start from scratch if I can help it. I can't understand how I could have screwed this up seeing as how I copied and pasted the majority of it.

    Here may be one more clue.

    I walked through the setup ( visually and came across the line on page 4 where it says to run

    netstat -tap | grep mysql

    The results are supposed to look like this:

    tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 8474/mysqld

    Mine looks similar except for the last segment:

    tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN -

    Does that spark any ideas? I really do appreciate the time you guys put in here.
