    I have ISPConfig 2.0.9 and it works great though i have a few problems you might help me with:

    1. My clients are trying to log into the adminsitration page: ie http://www.theirdomain.com:81 ; the login page loads but the user cannot access the system. The password and username are refused each time! how can i solve this?

    2. Another problem is from the WebMail Client (UebiMiau). When the client/user tries to access the webmail via http://www.theirdomain.com:81/webamil the domain is resolved to the internal ip of the server (ie: and obviously nothing happens!

    Thanks for now!

    Are you sure you didn't mix up system users and ISPConfig users? System users have names like web<id>_<name>, whereas ISPConfig users usually have other usernames. You create ISPConfig users on the "Login Data" tab of the "ISP Client" form: http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/manual_en/manual_reseller_en_src.htm#3_2_1

    Make sure your users use the same URL that is in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php.

    Hi Falko,

    Thanks for the information, worked great!

    Just one question..why is there so many usernames and passwords..i mean if i set a user as being the adminsitrator why cannot he/she administer at least his own site?

    Thanks once again for valuable time

    Only linux system users can administer the site, because an Administrator needs FTP access. ISPConfig clients are simply a record in the database and Linux can not authenticate to them and thye do not have system UID's and GID's and quota.

    Because a client can have more than one web site. That's why there is a client login so that the client can manage all of his web sites.
    If you only needed the login of a web site administrator, then each administrator would be able to manage completely different web sites that belong to the same client.
