    Hi all,

    Last week I installed ISPConfig (v. 2.2.3) as I had problems with the latest version, I followed the Perfect Setup tutorial on the HowToForge site and all seemed to work fine - Thanks Falko :)

    However today, I got a company (Cybernetic-Servers) to colocate my server in Telehouse (london) and I seem to have problems with pointing my other domains to the server.

    I have sorted out the primary domain 'www.urbanapp.com' to point to the server and am using ns1.urbanapp.com and ns2.urbanapp.com as my name servers for other domains that I want to point to the server.

    Heres the problem...

    www.urbanapp.com works fine and points to the server perfectly. Now when I try to point other domains I own for example bnasystems.co.uk it does not want to know, If I ping bnasystems.co.uk it pings on the servers IP address which is right, However if I try to type: http://www.bnasystems.co.uk into the browser nothing happens it trys to load data from the servers IP address but does not display the website, I have added the site and have Created DNS Records and DNS-MX records in the DNS Manager but nothing seems to work.

    Obviously the IP Address of the server has been changed in:

    /etc/network/interfaces and I have added the host name in /etc/hosts

    But is still isn't working.

    I have also ammended the IP address list in the 'Server Settings' in ISPConfig but no luck!

    edit: I have also checked the VHOST's configuration and the sites have been successfully added to: /etc/apache2/vhosts/vhosts_ispconfig.conf. So I suppose the problem must lie within the DNS Server settings or ISPConfig configuration settings??

    Anyone have any ideas??

    Please help... My server is useless at the moment :(

    Thanks in advance,

    Bobby

    Did you create a promary DNS record for bnasystems.co.uk in the ISPConfig DNS manager with a A-Record for www pointing to your server IP ?

    Yes mate, I believe so!

    If you want I could give you the admin password (will send it in a PM) and your welcome to have a look??

    I would be really greatful!

    If not, Do you reckon it would be best if I just reinstalled ISPConfig? If so what is the command?

    Thanks Till,

    Your domain doesn't look too good:

    No A records, no NS records,...
    Did you take a look at this tutorial? http://www.howtoforge.com/ispconfig_dns_godaddy

    Apart from the Godaddy stuff it shows you how to create records in ISPConfig.

    It's not necessary to reinstall ISPConfig. What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /root/ispconfig
    ? Which distribution do you use?
