    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum.

    I was intending to use ISPConfig and did a test install on my home machine.

    Problem ISPConfig was a test and after I installed it and decided I wouldn't use it, I uninstalled it, only now I cant run my old webserver.
    How can i get webserver back?
    i have tried to unistall apache2 and reinstall but i get the same error message "The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost."

    Or How can i completely remove apache to do a fresh re-install?

    Help plz

    regards,

    chloe

    Do you see error messages in the logs in /var/log/apache/?
    To completely uninstall Apache, I'd run
    Code:
    apt-get remove apache2
    and the move the configuration files under /etc/apache2 somewhere else.
    Then do
    Code:
    apt-get install apache2
    But I haven't tested this, do this at your own risk!

    There are lots of errors about connection, port and I think firewall. I’m not at my machine at the moment.

    If I can remove apache completely, I should be able to get back the web server.
    But when I tried yesterday it kept on using existing configuration files.

    How can I remove all ISPConfig configuration files & directory from my machine?
    I think ISPConfig firewall might be interfering with my system.

    As I said:
    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    iptables -L
    ?

    Can you post the output of
    Code:

    iptables -L

    output: Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Ok, your firewall is off, so it's not interfering.
