    Hello everyone!
    Right now im running Ubuntu 9.04 with Lighttpd (+Virtual Hosts) and ProFTPD (+TLS).
    Everything runs very well. But I just wanted to turn my kinda boring server into something more usefull and also offer mail services.
    I checked out your tutorials / guides and found myself with a little problem. I already tryed to fix it myself but... I wouldnt be here if I made it....

    I come directly from Windows Hosting, so Linux is kinda new to me. Even though I already learned alot from your guides and the big, wise, google.

    Is there any reason to take a specific distri? Cus I just cant decide between any...

    But thats not my only problem. When I follow your tutorial I come to a specific point where you install / set-up quotas. (Example)

    My fstab file is always completely empty. How do I find out what to write in there? I already googled but was not able to do it myself...
    And I wanted to ask if this guides also work if I have more then one domain (cus my customers most likely have... I got 2 right now to manage but the third will come next week. Drivingstar.de, Polarwolf.eu) So that my customers can mail with their domains as well and such...

    Thanks alot already...

    Im usinh Ubuntu 9.04 aswell, here you go, heres my fstab

    GNU nano 2.0.9 File: /etc/fstab

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation

    Thanks but how did you find the:
    UUID=e284a12b-b559-4ff1-8a7f-0f9618658260 ?

    I dont know how to list my HDDs / Storages...
    So you have this in you file?:

    # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
    UUID=e284a12b-b559-4ff1-8a7f-0f9618658260 / ext3 relatime,erro$
    # /home was on /dev/sda3 during installation
    UUID=091376e6-763c-4860-afce-7911a0677c19 /home ext3 relatime $
    # swap was on /dev/sda2 during installation
    UUID=36e93d16-3fca-46eb-84d2-9dbc5837ded7 none swap sw $
    /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0


    If yes, how did you find that out? :(

    I didnt need to, thats how my fstab was automatically setup, I didnt change anything.
    I just type sudo nano /etc/fstab and my fstab opens up like I showed you

    Thats very strange how you dont have an fstab file already, I have tried it numerous times with several different Ubuntu versions and they all had fstab already configured.

    Try setting up the server again from nothing and see if the fstab file is created properly, unless of course thats a huge hassle, then you would maybe need to re-design the server on a backup first

    It says:

    # UNCONFIGURED FSTAB FOR BASE SYSTEM


    Nothing more, nothing less...

    You obviously didnt click on the links then because if you did you would have realised that they were 2 completely different links, so yeh I didnt double post at all, I was showing you to different Google searches I tried for you

    They are different

    Ahhh a Vserver, well yeh thats kinda different, good luck with that, thats not something I have tried to set a server up on, I doubt its something I would try either :(

    That's how it's supposed to be on OpenVZ.
