  • Error messages during installation

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 0

    During the installation process I get the following error messages though the respective programs are installed on the server: iptables: command not found httpd: command not found useradd: command not found apachectl: command not found This means that the programs mentioned are not in the path of your Linux installation. Please type echo $PATH on your command line, and make symbolic links to the programs in one of the directories that is in the path. For example, you can create a symbolic link to the program /path/to/apachectl in the directory /usr/bin by going into the directory /usr/bin and typing the following:

  • How will my existing Apache installation be influenced by the installation of ISPConfig 2?

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 0

    The ISPConfig 2 Apche webserver is installed in parallel with your existing Apache installation. The ISPConfig 2 apache is only used for the controlpanel. The hosted webpages are served by the Apache that ships with your linux distribution. This means you do not have to compile special modules into your Apache in order to work with ISPConfig 2. You can compile Apache and PHP the way you like. The ISPConfig 2 installer comments out the PHP settings in your httpd.conf. PHP can be later enabled for each web separately in the ISPConfig 2 web interface.

  • Error messages during uninstall

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 0

    shell-init: could not get current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory This is normal. The program /root/ispconfig/uninstall deletes its own parent directory (/root/ispconfig) and thus cannot find it anymore. Nevertheless the uninstall will be completed. Just ignore the error message.

  • What does the mailscanner do to email attachments?

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 1

    Attachments with suspicious file extensions (e.g. exe) will be renamed automatically: e.g., USELESS_EYE_CANDY.EXE would be renamed to USELESS_EYE_CANDY.DEFANGED12345-EXE, so that one cannot open the attachment thoughtlessly by double-clicking. The attachment first has to be saved to the hard disk and to be renamed to USELESS_EYE_CANDY.EXE before it can be opened. Note: The mailscanner feature is not the same as the antivirus.

  • What is the difference between complete and partial deinstallation of the ISPConfig 2 system?

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 0

    Partial deinstallation means that only the ISPConfig 2 system itself will be uninstalled, not the objects created by it (web sites, users, DNS records, etc.). On complete deinstallation also the objects created by the systems (web sites, users, DNS records, etc.) will be uninstalled. Thus, the server is reset to its original state.

  • I cannot reach the ISPConfig 2 system on port 81.

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 0

    Please check if you have tried to reach the system over the right protocol (https or http). If this is the case please verify that the ISPConfig 2 system started before (with ps aux on the command line, or just restart the ISPConfig 2 system: /etc/rc.d/init.d/ispconfig_server restart (RedHat/Mandrake) respectively /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart (SuSE)). If this still does not work, then most probably your firewall (iptables or ipchains) is blocking port 81.

  • What are Co-Domains?

    apache Author: tillTags: Comments: 0

    Under "Co-Domains" you can enter subdomains or even total different domains that should point to that web. Example: If you can reach your web by www.xyz.tld then you could enter the subdomain www2.xyz.tld under "Co-Domains". You could also enter the new domain abc.tld (e.g. with the host www, so that www.abc.tld points to your web www.xyz.tld).
