    Might have been a temporary DNS problem or a connectivity problem somewhere...

    I cant believe it...

    i cant believe you use THIS as a real server... i cant believe how can I use it as a webserver.. good luck im running linux over a virtual machine over a real operative system, i had to restore an image from sunday, my only hope is that it doesnt fall again thurday o friday...

    There is no solution to this problem over the entire Internet, now i can see why, there is no solution !! everybody tired enough reinstall linux, i was lucky today.. ill keep my virual machine images update fron now on..

    Please, do some upgrade over ispconfig to fix all the postfix/apache/spamas.. /named bugs

    There is no bug in ISPConfig. If you broke your installation, this does not mean that there is a bug in ISPConfig.

    misspelled, sorry, im a spanish speaker :eek:) i mean if you can do "something" to avoid linux to broke himself. i didnt touch anything, sometime in the night (may be a 6/6/6 bug?? jeje) postfix couldnt get access to certain folders so it stop to process emails... i was sleeping, so i didnt notice till 6 am :p thanks to a bad purchased motherboard, linux was running under a virtual machine and, after 5 hours trying to recover postfix, i had to recover a security snapshot...

    Linux doesn't break itself. Maybe there was a cron job, a hacker, etc. that did this (there are millions of possible reasons). How can you expect ISPConfig to take care of this?

    A cron job to backup config files on other server maybe? a backup copy of postfix/apache/php/etc .conf files? i dont know.. something like that...

    You can check your cron jobs with
    crontab -l
    and by checking out /etc/cron.daily, /etc/cron.weekly, ...
