    I am new to Linux and have always done Windows Serves. This has been a learning curve for me over the past few weeks. I am getting closer now.
    Here is my problem I have Debian installed and I am using Ispconfig3. I have started to FTP files up to see if I had it working correctly and found I do not. Here is the problem. If you go to the site you see what I uploaded using FTP, however if you go to or you see "It Works" this is telling me I have something wrong pointing to the wrong file area but can not seem to find out what is wrong. Can ne1 help out a nub with this one.:confused:

    Being new to this and after several attempts by reintalling the software It seems like the problem may have to do with a config file for the apache2 server. I have not found the file yet but I think there is a file that must tell the systhem that is in say /dir/dir1 and telling the system is in /dir/dir2
    I am not shure but I thougt that ispconfig handled the pointing of the file locations. This is like when I first started learning CP/M years ago :)
    If ne1 can point me in a direction it would help.

    Did you select www as auto-subdomain for the web site in ISPConfig?
    Did you select a specific IP, or did you select *?

    I did try the auto-subdomain but the only ip it shows is the *

    Right now the is pointing to the /var/www/
    and the and are pointing to /var/www/web

    I have tried it with ubuntu, centos and with debian. Right now I have it up with debian for about my seventh time.

    Found how to put in the IP instead of the * and it was working or seened to be. Next thing I know now i can not access the site at all :( I am getting an error 403

    Now that is wierd, my index.html was removed some how. All other files where there but it was gone.

    Well Seem to have everything working except one thing. The Email. I thought it was working because outlook checks it ok but I can not send to it or from it. If I try to send to it like [email protected] I get a message back from the server saying no such user yet if I go to ispconfig the user is there and outlook checks the mail for that user ok. If I change the password to the user when i run outlook it chalanges me to the new password so it is partly working. Has any one seen this before? Please help.

    OK Wierd I can send from the address just not send to it. <[email protected]>: unknown user: "info"

    Can not recieve email

    Him not sure if this is part of the problem. I can send but can not recieve email from my server. I also just noticed that if i do that I get an error 404. Not sure if Ispconfig is creating all the correct directories or not when I setup my server.

    Here is the error I get back when I try to sent to that address:
    Reporting-MTA: dns;
    X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 34AAC1FC4CF
    X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822; [email protected]
    Arrival-Date: Fri, 5 Nov 2010 08:41:13 -0400 (EDT)

    Final-Recipient: rfc822; [email protected]
    Original-Recipient: rfc822;[email protected]
    Action: failed
    Status: 5.1.1
    Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; unknown user: "info"

    Being new to this linix I was woundering should is be looking for the user "info" or "[email protected]" ? Maybe a config file is not right. Everything is working fine I just can not recieve email or use the webmail, but I never need that anyway.

    Ok, the problem is that the server thinks that [email protected] is a system user account instead of a virtual account because you have in /etc/mailname and in mydestination in /etc/postfix/ You should change this (e.g. use another domain or something like in /etc/mailname and the mydestination line).

    I will see if I can figure out what to do. I am new to linix and this is my first time using it. I have been a few weeks learning but getting there. I could not get things to work right like when I installed it I could not get the DNS to work so I just kept playing with setting untill everything seemed to work. Now everything seems to work except the email. I can not recieve and I can not access it with webmail but I do not really care about that otion. I will see if I can figure out what you are saying and edit the files. Thanks for the help.

    Just tried that and so far it looks like it is working. I'll have to check things out a little better to make sure things like the catchall and so on are working but seems to be working now. THANKS :)
