    Hello all,

    Having a problem with the apache server on ISPConfig 3.

    Before everything was working but now ...


    When executing this same command as part of a PHP file on the SAME host as part of an PHP file

    I get errors...

    access log:
    error log:
    According to the error message, it could not connect to the host - but - then why does something like this:
    work on the same server when entered in the browser???

    Also, here is a sample from nslookup on the problem host:

    Again, the code being executed (on the host zazu) is:
    It seems like there is something strange with the php. Can someone provide some tips on how to troubleshoot?

    Hello again,

    Moved items to a Windows machine with XAMPP and all is working fine. But still need to know why it was not working under ISPConfig with CentOS6

    Might be a firewall issue and not a PHP problem. If you run a firewall, then ensure that port 7100 is open.

    Till, your response (above) is 2 years old but I am having this problem (today) too. Is your 'port 7100' advice still accurate?

    I am using ISPConfig3 ( and the SoapClient specifically addresses to port 8080 in your documentation. I have port 8080 open and I am accessing the ISPConfig interface at

    Any attempt to connect via SOAP is met with:
    My SOAP code:
    I think I may have screwed this up by changing the permissions of either the 'remote/index.php' file or the 'lib/classes/' file. The ISPConfig3 download shows them as 'homeuser:www-data' ownership but I believe jailkit changes that to 'ispconfig:ispconfig'. I installed everything perfectly using this tutorial:

    Can you confirm what the ownership of those two files should be and - if ispconfig:ispconfig is good - what could be the reason for not being able to login using the above code?

    And THANK YOU for providing such an excellent ISP configuration tool! I have added the billing module and am looking forward to using it!

    Till, the issue is with the 'Additional PHP Versions' of ISPConfig. I have a 'Default' PHP version using php-fpm to listen on the port. This is my default OS php installation (i.e.: /etc/php5). I have a multitude of other PHP versions listening on sockets within their respective directories (i.e.: /opt/php/5.5/, /opt/php/5.6, etc). ISPConfig registers these versions and I can point any website to use any version using the ISPConfig interface.

    Present status:
    ISPConfig has 'fastcgi_pass unix:/var/lib/php5-fpm/ispconfig.sock;' in the sites-enabled > 000-ispconfig.vhost. That socket is set in the /etc/php5/pool.d/ispconfig.conf file, the default php version.

    The trouble:
    If my site is not using the default php version, then any ISPConfig remoting I try to do fails.
    I have not tried, but I am pretty certain I could change the ispconfig.vhost to listen on the same PHP version socket as my vhost and all would be well. But - apart from that possible solution - is there a way to make it work as I have described?
    I thought I would ask you first since your mind is wrapped around this code.

    Please help/advise.
