    I can't access ISPConfig via browser. I think i followed the Perfect setup guide exactly but aparently not. I don't know what information would be useful to diagnose this problem so if you need more info just ask. If I type in http://[myip]:81 it says "Bad Request
    Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
    Reason: You're speaking plain HTTP to an SSL-enabled server port.
    Instead use the HTTPS scheme to access this URL, please." So then I try https://[myip]:81 and I get "The page cannot be displayed." I have no idea what I did wrong.

    I was reading one of those threads you suggested and it mentioned ISPConfig installs a firewall that should be disabled.. how do I do this?

    Also when I try to

    vim /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

    I get this warning

    Found a swap file by the name "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/"
              owned by: root   dated: Sat Nov 12 14:22:09 2005
             file name: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/
              modified: YES
             user name: root   host name: server1.[URL=""][/URL]
            process ID: 5723
    While opening file "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/"

          NEWER than swap file!
    (1) Another program may be editing the same file.
        If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
        different instances of the same file when making changes.
        Quit, or continue with caution.
    (2) An edit session for this file crashed.
        If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/"
        to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
        If you did this already, delete the swap file "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/"
        to avoid this message.
    Swap file "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/" already exists!
    Is ISPConfig causing this warning? Should I stop ISPConfig before editing this file?

    To stop the firewall execute this command on the shell:

    /etc/init.d/bastille_firewall stop

    Thsi error is not caused by ISPCOnfig. It seems that you have opened the file with e.g. vim and vim was not closed correctly. To get rid of the error, execute:

    rm -f /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/
