    Hi all,
    I managed to install ISPConfig in my CentOs 5 machine based on "CentOs 5 perfect setup".
    NB: I installed centOs using text mode and not GUI
    However i'm facing two problems
    1. How do i resolve IP address with computer Name. I can only access my machine remotely through ip address and not computer name.
      Here is how i've set it up.
      Computer name: wserver
      Domain: dsm.or.tz

      but when i write http://wserver.dsm.or.tz page cannot be displayed. If i use its IP address http://192.168.0.20 things goes perfect.

      my /etc/hosts looks like this
      Code:
      # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
      # that require network functionality will fail.
      127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost
      192.168.0.20    wserver.dsm.or.tz wserver
      ::1     localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
      
      my resolv.conf looks like this...where .3 is my primary AD(windows 2003 Server) and .6 is my secondary AD(2003 server)
      Code:
      search dsm.or.tz
      nameserver 192.168.0.3
      nameserver 192.168.0.6
      
      my host.conf
      Code:
      order hosts,bind
      
      My /etc/sysconfig/network looks like this

      Code:
      NETWORKING=yes
      HOSTNAME=wserver
      
      The only problem is resolving name with IP.
      I am within my company network and am trying to test ISPCONFIG inside my company before i move any further. My network uses static IP.
    1. Second problem is how do i use the same ip address of the machine that i've installed ISPCONFIG to host my website. The problem am facing now is that i get this message "Shared IP Address" when i try to access using its ip address after site setup.

    Thanks in advance for any help from you?

    The problem is that the hostname doesn't exist in DNS:

    Code:
    server1:~# dig wserver.dsm.or.tz
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> wserver.dsm.or.tz
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:

    If you want to use this hostname in your LAN only, then you must create an A record (or CNAME) for it on your internal DNS server(s), and your clients must use this DNS server.

    What's in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf, and what's the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    ?
