    how does ispconfig bind Vhosts_ispconfig.conf_date into apache?
    In the apache2.conf is only a line

    Include /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf
    Therefore I miss an include to Vhosts_ispconfig.conf_01-09-07_13-36-14

    Vhosts_ispconfig.conf_date is not bind in apache, it is created in case of a configuration error as apache will not start if you use the configuration file Vhosts_ispconfig.conf_date.

    To fix this, make a backup of Vhosts_ispconfig.conf, then rename Vhosts_ispconfig.conf_date to Vhosts_ispconfig.conf

    and then run:

    httpd -t

    to get the error message.

    thx u till.

    Does this mean, that I can leave Vhosts_ispconfig.conf_date after renaming to Vhosts_ispconfig.conf without having trouble in the future?
    For instance: Will new changes within the ispc web control panel be proceeded correctly?

    Please do what I posted above, otherwiese you will not find the problem and without solving the problem, ISPConfig will not write changes to your apache configuration.

    There was one problem which I solved. What is the next step?

    If you solved the problem in ISPConfig or in the apache conf file (not by editing Vhost_ispconfig.conf manually) there is nothing more to do.

    That's the crux of the matter :)

    Did you run
    httpd -t
    after renaming the file? What's the output?
