    I just installed everything tonight and i had ispconfig up and running. I changed the password and that was it (i think) then i closed the page and went and watched some tv. Now when i go to the same site as before ispconfig wont open up. The icon shows in the url so its making some kind of connection but the page cannot be displayed. Any ideas?

    Oh i forgot to mention:

    the server is running, and apache is running. I am new to everything but i know those to are working since i go to the test apache site that gets installed and it displays fine.

    I was using the internal ip to get to the site before but now thats not working. In the documentation it says to go to the website. But im just testing the site out right now, in fact i only have a dynamic ip from my isp. My website is being hosted at a real company. I would like to get it running at my house, then get a static ip from my isp, then move everything here and discontinue paying for the hosting at the current place its being hosted.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks again

    Please post the ouput of:

    netstat -tap | grep isp


    iptables -L

    Are you able to login again when you execute:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

    The first command gave me nothing the second gave me
    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

    Then i restarted and it appears to work....so what happend? Does it automatically like go insto sleep mode if its not being used? Was this a flook? Do i need to check something is set correctly?

    Thanks till though, Im glad its working again. Just a little concerned about future cases

    Looks like the ISPConfig Apache died somehow. Any errors in the error log in /root/ispconfig/httpd/log?

    Prolly not a good thing, but that log didnt exist. I haven't gotten any website set up yet. The documentation on the ispconfig website doesn't really go over configuring everything that much after its been installed.

    Does anyone know of a good how to on setting up all that stuff?

    Heres my situation: I have a dynamic ip, but will be getting static once i can verify this is working. I have 1 site hosted somewhere else already (my main one that i set up my server to use by default, was that the right thing to do?) , and 2 more that i purchased but arent being hosted by anyone yet. All three should be hosted at my house once i get a static ip.

    Does anyone have general recomendations for me? Should i use one of the other websites that isnt being used yet to setup the server. Can i test this before i get a static ip or do i need that before i can test if this is working?

    Thanks for the help so far

    This log is for the controlpanel server, not for hosted websites. Dont mix these two up, the webserver that comes with ISPConfig runs only the controlpanel on port 81.

    There are several posts about this here in the forum, but most poeple find it really slef explanatory:

    1) Create a client.
    2) Create a website.
    3) Crereate the email users you want to have.

    Thats all :)

    To test a server , you must have a domain pointing to your server IP. As you have a dynamic IP, you should consider to get a free domain from dyndny.org to test your server.

    The correct path to the log file is /root/ispconfig/httpd/logs/error_log.

    I was able to test the websites by using godaddys total dns. So now i have 2 sites up and running. Obviously i know this isnt good practice because when my ip changes ill lose all my websites but this is just for testing.

    I think i was just scared about setting it up and thats why i wanted a how to. What i was ultimately looking for was setting up your own name servers with go daddy and i found that how. Very interesting stuff.

    Thanks to all for the help.

    Ps that log that you refered to didnt say anything interesting. Ill mark it up as a flook until it happends again.
