Hey, First of all a big thanx fo Falko for making all those wonderful howto articles but i'm not making a topic here to say that alone in this forum section. While i was walking through the howto and landed on Page4 i run into problems.. Firstly i found out that this command: Code: yum install quota wasn't needed for me because somethings seemed to have it installed. i installed a MINIMAL fedora through text mode and turned off nearly everything. Second issue: /etc/init.d/named start When that command is executed i'm getting this error: Code: [[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/named start Locating /var/named/chroot//etc/named.conf failed. I can't find any configuration file. You can create it by system-config-bind or install caching-nameserver. [FAILED] [[email protected] ~]# a locate on named.conf return this: Code: [[email protected] ~]# locate named.conf /etc/dbus-1/system.d/named.conf /usr/share/doc/bind-9.4.1/sample/etc/named.conf /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/services/named.conf /usr/share/man/man5/named.conf.5.gz [[email protected] ~]# Installing system-config-bind won't do anything usefull because that needs a graphical environment. And a few lines further you say: Code: I will use ISPConfig to configure BIND (zones, etc.). so i just continued there and assumed that ISPconfig will fix the issue once a named.conf has been made. And a little later on the page (at the end) you say: Code: mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword i recommend to avoid using passwords in the console!!!! it is all being logged and although it's highly unlikely that someone gets on your computer as root it's still possible. (it's all written by humans afterall) so you can better replace that by: Code: mysql -u root -p SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('MyNewPassword'); \q mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root -p (or what works here) No issues for the rest. Now i downloaded and installed ISPconfig and i wonder why it compiled apache (1.3.xx) and php (5.2.3) and not used the apache and php that was installed with the guide... :S i don't really want to have 2 apache's running... (1 for ispconfig and one for the rest) is there any possible solution for this? Thanx, Mark.
