    I have just installed CentOS as well as ISPConfig. I am trying to upload my website for the mail site ISPConfig is installed under. So after installing CentOS and ISP config I created an account for my main website (the website I will be hosting all domains under) and then logged into FTP using the username and password for that account. However, I replaced the index.html file under the WEB directory and it still shows the default index.html file for new accounts. Also, I am unsure as to how to access the webmail for ISPConfig. I have read all over but cant seem to find the answers to either of these questions. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You have to give the user administrative rights within ISPConfig, on the moment that you create the user. If you don't give the user administrative rights, you've uploaded the site within the directory of the user, which is: http://www.yourdomain.tld/~loginname.

    Thanks for the reply, I am still a little confused though.

    I have installed the webmail addon but NONE of the clients/sites are able to log in.

    I am going to MYDOMAIN.COM:81/WEBMAIL but no users can log in.

    Also, if i create a directory and go to MYDOMAIN.COM/FOLDER it comes up with a 403-Forbidden error even though I have set that user as ADMIN.

    *EDIT* I have installed the squirrel mail addon and can log in. But the account can not send/receive emails (but displays NO errors during either process).

    Im trying my best to figure it out with no luck. Any other ideas ?

    Thanks for the support I appreciate it.

    Did you enable maildir under management > server > settings?

    Indeed I did. Also, when i navigate to a directory within the website:


    it comes up as 403 forbidden for folders

    This is some weird stuff....

    To be honest with you im a n00b at this so im not sure how to find out. Also in using the guide for CentOS 4.6 and ISPConfig I skipped step 10.1 MAILDIR because I was under the impression that this is for people who DONT want to install ISPConfig. Am i correct in this ? or should I complete this step ?

    *Article I was referring to http://www.howtoforge.com/centos-4.6-server-lamp-email-dns-ftp-ispconfig*

    EDIT: During a reinstall i completed step 10.1 MAILDIR

    Also, I have gone to the SSL section of a site I created and "created" an ssl, but when I point to https://mysite.tld it comes up as not found. Im loving ISPConfig for basic website creation but am running into a lot of problems with configuring settings for the websites i have created. Once again, any help is GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thank you everyone.

    EDIT 2: I have a feeling port blocking may be the issue for my email server. Can someone let me know what ports are used by the applications listed in the guide I used (noted above) or more importantly the ports used by the email server.

    Thanks again.

    UPDATE: I have opened ports 110 and 25 with no luck in sending or receiving emails. Have tried both UebiMiau and SquirrelMail

    I am now starting to think I should not have completed step 10.1 MailDir in the guide. Is there anyway to reverse this process so it can be used with ISPConfig ?

    No, that step is fine. :)

    What are the outputs of
    netstat -tap
    iptables -L
    , and
    ? What's in /etc/httpd/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf?
