Double entries in FTP and periods in DNS

    richcor New Member almost 2 months of attempting to set up a web server with the help of various web sites and forums, I found; 'The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 14.04 (Apache2, PHP, MySQL, PureFTPD, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)'.
    Aside from a few items being out of sequence(minor), following the script was simple and error free.:)
    Setting up the PureFTPD users in ISPConfig 3 was a little problematic. I was unable to connect to my FTP site when I realized the name I was using was not what the PureFTPD was expecting. The client username was added as a prefix to the name I entered as FTP user. When I duplicated the error in the username I was able to connect and upload my files.

    Setting up the 'name servers' had a similar problem. after saving the new setup, a period was added to several names, and the '@' was replaced by a 'period' in the email address.

    I deleted each of the entries and tried several times. This is the second server and this problem also occurred in the first build.

    I browsed the downloaded manual and apparently the FTP username is doing as it was designed. The only issue now is the '@' in the name server setup.

    There is no @ in SOA entries.
    The @ in soa contact mail address is always replaced by .
    [email protected] is

    Hostnames need a dot added.
    E. g.: in a DNS of domain would lead to instead of the intended. is correct.
