    Hello everybody!

    I have a very strange problem right now... i guess it all started
    when I tried to upgrade the php to version 5.3.x and i had to unistall
    the php-mhash. But to do this i had to uninstall phpmyadmin first and re-install it later... and redo the changes in the perfect setup guide (cookies -> http)... anyway I also updated to the latest version of ispconfig 3.

    1) Can't connect via FTP, it accepts my login but refuses to download the file/folder list and gives me a timeout message.
    2) No one of the sites i have work, they all show the default ispconfig "welcome to your website" file.

    I dont think its a DNS problem, coz the mail works on all accounts... but I just cant seem to figure out whats wrong... plz help.

    1) Enable logging in pure-ftpd and then check the errors in the syslog file.
    2) Login to ispconfig, go to system > server IP, select a ip and disable the "namevirtulahost" checkbox and save. Then enable the checkbox again and save. Wait a few minutes to see if the sites work again.

    Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

    Same problem

    Hi everyone,

    I have the same problem, hosting around 13 sites and all of them are pointing to the default website, also the redirectors (subdomains) are pointing to the default website/ipaddres

    In the first place i did a update of the OS (debian 5.0.x)

    >> Update status from of the other ISP config server
    Reading package lists...
    Building dependency tree...
    Reading state information...
    The following packages will be upgraded:
    dhcp3-client dhcp3-common
    2 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Inst dhcp3-client [3.1.1-6+lenny4] (3.1.1-6+lenny5 Debian-Security:5.0/oldstable) []
    Inst dhcp3-common [3.1.1-6+lenny4] (3.1.1-6+lenny5 Debian-Security:5.0/oldstable)
    Conf dhcp3-common (3.1.1-6+lenny5 Debian-Security:5.0/oldstable)
    Conf dhcp3-client (3.1.1-6+lenny5 Debian-Security:5.0/oldstable)

    When finished I did a reboot and afterwards the update of ISPConfig to version (The version installed was

    The update ran without problems but after the reboot (I always do when updating) the problem occurs, I do not have the FTP problems mentioned above.

    It looks like the Virtual Host file is not loaded.

    I Have 2 other servers and I don't want to run into the same problems.
    Any suggestions?


    I found this in /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log:

    [Fri Apr 15 14:19:10 2011] [warn] VirtualHost overlaps with VirtualHost, the first has precedence, perhaps you need a NameVirtualHost directive

    Problem solved (for me)

    What I did:

    I opened the 1st domain in the list: ISPconfig->Sites->Website and changed the PHP option from CGI to Fast-CGI, saved and the problems are gone!
    It also keeps working with the option back to CGI.

    However, it works fine now, the only question is: what caused the problem and why is this the (or a) solution???

    Does anybody have an answer?

    I amso tried that now, but no change at all... i can even go to system/server ip config and disable the whole ip... no change :(

    can someone post their httpd.conf file or some other relevant config file, i think i haveto start all over and go trough them all line by line to see where it fails... time is running out :(

    Have you selected * or the IP address in the websites? If you selected *, try to use the IP instaed. be aware that * and IP can not be mixed on a server.

    yes tried that too... no change
    i have about 80 sites hosted right now... all of them are showing the same page and my phone are starting to bug me so i pulled the plug for now
  14. Member

    Till, that can be a solution, my websites are all on the IP, not on the *

    regarding the httpd.conf, it's empty, in the apache.conf are these lines:

    # Include module configuration:
    Include /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/*.load
    Include /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/*.conf

    # Include all the user configurations:
    Include /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

    # Include ports listing
    Include /etc/apache2/ports.conf

    can you take a look if they are there?

    Changing the config can take a while...
