    ok, i am waving the white flag! i have reloaded from scratch, everything 4 times and i get the same problem each time...i am running suse11.1 on an ESX server
    i build everything, and its up and running...i go to the ispconfig control panel and log in, no problem...but when i go to services,(inside the ispconf control panel) it says that the proftpd is offline.....i go into yast....system services...and check....it has proftpd running with no errors! but what is really wierd...it says the ispconfig is NOT running...and yet...it is...any ideas on this?

    Make sure that proftpd listens also on localhost.

    proftp still offline

    i ran a netstat and this is what i have....

    # netstat -apn |grep ":21"
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:21 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 11932/proftpd: (acc


    also i noticed on the end of the install:

    Connected successfully to MySQL server
    ls: cannot access /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf: No such file or directory
    ls: cannot access /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf: No such file or directory
    no crontab for root

    i found an empty vhosts_ispconfig.conf inside the /etc/apache2/vhosts/ file, but there are no .conf files inside the vhosts.d folder, just a couple of template files....
    hope that might help trouble shoot some....

    any ideas as to what i should do?
    thanks,

    Did you disable AppArmor?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apache2/vhosts/
    ?

    yes i did disable the AppArmor and here is the output...


    # ls -la /etc/apache2/vhosts
    total 16
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2009-02-25 10:39 .
    drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 4096 2009-02-24 12:55 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2854 2009-02-25 12:15 Vhosts_ispconfig.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2854 2009-02-25 12:15 Vhosts_ispconfig.conf~

    Why do you say there's no conf file in /etc/apache2/vhosts?

    actually i said i did find one there, i opened it up and its empty, but its there...what i said in my earlier question was: at the end of installing ISPConfig that it had this message...

    ls: cannot access /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf: No such file or directory
    ls: cannot access /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf: No such file or directory
    no crontab for root


    so i didn't know why it was looking for a *.conf file there

    i am running ISPConfig on another machine with suse 10.3 and having no problems with it....i was just hopeing to be able to set it up in a virtual server

    ISPConfig does not use a folder called vhosts.d, the folder ispconfig uses is named vhosts and it contains the correct files.

    Please take a look in the ispconfig.log file and search for errors.

    But it's not empty:


    You can ignore this, it's just a warning. The installer reads the APache configuration, and in the Apache configuration the empty directory /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/ is included, so the installer tries to find files in that directory. Nothing to worry about.

    i just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the help in this learning curve, but i think for now i am going to go ahead and trash this install and just leave my ISPConfig that is running on SuSe 10.3 on a stand alone server running...i was really hopeing to move this into a virtual server configuration but i can only handle smacking myself in the forhead and saying DOH so many times :).....it looks like there are some very cool things just around the corner...virtualzion AND cluster fail over...so i think i'll wait for a little more...it will be worth it!:D
