    I followed the [url="]perfect setup for Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron[/url] and managed to set everything up ok as far as i know...

    When reaching the end i then went on to install ISPConfig, everything in the setup went ok until the end when i got this error:

    httpd: bad user name ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
    Does anyone know what this could be or how i could fix the problem?

    I'm completely new to all this and it's just a learning project for me so please give a detailed answer if you can.

    Any help is greatly appreciated :)

    Looks like i solved my problem :) I was looking for the httpd.conf when what i needed to edit was in the apache2.conf :)

    Did you install the latest ISPConfig version (2.2.23)? This shouldn't happen then...

    It was the latest .23 version i installed, i simply changed the "APACHE_RUN_USER" to User www-data and Group www-data and then it worked :)
