    I managed to properly install The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server and ISPConfig properly and got it running for the first time. I used to login at my ISPConfig using successfully. But after a reboot of my server and my router I could no longer login at, please help.

    Plus when I type it shows:

    Index of /
    Icon  Name                    Last modified      Size  Description[DIR] apache2-default/        17-Aug-2007 06:30    -

    is this good or what?

    Please run:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start

    If you want to access a website created in ISPConfig, please use the domain name to connect and not the IP address.

    thanks. it's working now, I can't use the domain name though, because if I type in the domain name I'm redirected to my router's configuration interface, I believe I'm experiencing loop back, I don't know how to fix it. please help.

    yes I have forwarded all the ports properly, here is the screenshot of what I did on my router config:


    but when I type nothing comes out and when I type the configuration panel of my hosting comes out. Please help.

    By the way my network setup is I have 2 PC's behind a router, the linux server is using internal IP and my other PC connected to the router is running windows XP with internal IP 192.168.100, I'm using it for browsing.

    Please make sure that is pointing to your router's public IP address, that your ISP doesn't block port 81, and that your router supports loopbacks.

    yes is pointing to my router's external IP, I was told that my ISP does not block any port and not sure if my router supports loopback. but when I type the login panel for the ISPConfig comes out, what can I do so that when I type the login panel for the ISPConfig also comes out?

    Let's assume that my machine's host name is

    This depends on the fact if you correctly configured the dns records for to point to your server IP.
