    I am having problems setting up ISPConfig. I am also very new to Linux.

    During setup it starts asking questions about the MySQL database and Domain. What should I be entering into these fields:
    I do not have any URL pointing to my server yet.

    Sorry if this seems like a very odd question.

    Also, is there a file I can manually edit to complete the setup since it seems like I am at the final step?

    Are you sure that's about your MySQL server? I believe ISPConfig is asking for the host.domainname.tld of where you're going to install ISPConfig.

    So, let's say your domain is In that case, you'd enter "www" for the first entry (unless you want to use an unusual host name), and then "" for the second prompt.

    Don't worry about it. The text for each of those prompts in that question-answer sequence is a little vague and non-descriptive.

    I was able to run ISPConfig again, this time I used the hostname that I provided with the Fedora Core 4 Perfect Setup. The problem is, I do not currently have a domain that points to my IP. The domain is currently hosted thru a vendor.

    Because of this, I am unable to access ISPConfig. Is there a way to access ISPConfig via an IP(ie I can't seem to make it work via IP.

    If you managed to install ISPConfig, then you can change the URL (and use an IP address in the URL) in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

    If you didn't succeed in installing ISPConfig, the next time you run the installer, when you are prompted for the host name, leave it empty, and as domain you enter your IP address.

    Do I need to restart ISPConfig after changing /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

    No, you don't have to restart ISPConfig.
