    so i followed the Perfect Debian Sarge install..
    no problem.. no errors

    So i install ISPC.. first time i make an Mysql username error. So i remove the install dir. and re-unpack. so i restart.. and this time it skipped the Mysql qeustions part! telling me set up was complete... and i cant seem to acess it ether.

    What should i do now? remove ISPConfig and try again? (link?)
    or rerun the setup? (possible, whats the cmd?)

    When you retry the installation, you have to remove the old install dir first (as you did), but you also have to remove /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig

    rm -fr /root/ispconfig
    rm -fr /home/admispconfig
    and possibly the ISPConfig MySQL database, if it exists.

    The uninstall script only works when ISPConfig was installed coirrectly. So please use the method falko suggested:

    rm -fr /root/ispconfig
    rm -fr /home/admispconfig[/CODE
    Then go to the directory /var/lib/mysql and delete the directory with the name of your ISPConfig database.
    [QUOTE]isnt there a config file which i can edit to chance the valeus which are given in step9, the one asking about mysql?
    No, you have to enter the values when the installer asks for them.

    That you used example com is a problem, thats why your controlpanel is so slow. It trys to load the images from example com and some part of the server config wont work at all.

    To solve this, open the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/ and replace in the URL variable for the controlpanel with your IP address.

    EDIT: somekey things are not loading i noticed:
    such as: management > server > settings
    i edited the $go_info["server"]["server_url"] = "";
    to $go_info["server"]["server_url"] = "";

    where is the network IP adress of my server

    the error i get when i want to see managemnt > server > settings

    The requested URL /admin/ was not found on this server.

    It must be
    $go_info["server"]["server_url"] = "[B][COLOR="Red"]https://[/COLOR][/B]";

    thank you once again :)
    that enabled it.

    and which mIRC server+room are you guys in?

    Now when i want to add a site,, its says The name is already in use by another site or domain. I got the domain via perhaps it is caused by that.

    We're in no IRC chat.

    Please check if is either used by some other web site you configured in ISPConfig (also check the Co-Domains), or if it is in any of the recycle bins. has nothing to do with this.

    ok.. well after i emptied the trashcans it did allouwed me to make the site.
    however i still see the page displayed as default by
    click to see what i mean. Registered and Parked with EuroDNS (see details)
    =[ and i cant seem to login to FTP ether.

    this makes me sad and feel unsuitable to do this :(

    You must tell the people to change the DNS records for so that they point to the IP address of your ISPConfig server. Maybe they even have a web interface where you can configure this yourself.

    i set the DNS crap to go to my IPadress where port 80 is forwarded to my server.

    if i cant get it up today i think i might have to ditch ispconfig and do it the normall way =[ which would sadden me lots

    That looks correct. But the DNS problems have nothing to do with ISPConfig. If you dont point your Domain to the correct IP, it wont work even if you configure everything manually :)

    At least now the default Apache placeholder page shows up now under

    Is Vhosts_ispconfig.conf included in your Apache configuration? What's in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf?

    i gave up on the pannel, ill just go ahead and do a clean debian netinstall then use the debian perfect setup guide to setup a nice apache2.

    BTW falko u wrote the pure-ftpd howto?
    it contains an error:

    INSERT INTO `ftpd` ( `User` , `status` , `Password` , `Uid` , `Gid` , `Dir` , `ULBandwidth` , `DLBandwidth` , `comment` , `ipaccess` , `QuotaSize` , `QuotaFiles` ) VALUES ( 'exampleuser' , '1' , MD5 ( 'secret' ) , '2001' , '2001' , '/home/' , '100' , '100' , '' , '*' , '50' , '0' ) ;

    This gives a 1604 error.. which i solved by making MD5( 'secret' )
    however this leads to other problems such as being unable to login with FTP deu to 530's cuz the password isnt accepted:

    [19:49:29] USER harm
    [19:49:29] 331 User harm OK. Password required
    [19:49:29] PASS (hidden)
    [19:49:32] 530 Authentication failed, sorry

    =[ again a nice tutorial which just fails at the very end

    I've never had any problems with this...

    Also, I've run the Debian Sarge Perfect Setup more than 50 times now, and never ever had difficulties with it.

    I've installed the debian perfect setup last week too on a server in a datacenter. I copied all the commands from the howto to my putty ssh client windiw without changing a single char and it worked out of the box.
