    I've got some ISPConfig newbie questions. I can post these questions in
    separate threads if I should... if it would be more helpful for the list.
    I sure would appreciate the benefit of your knowledge!

    Section 1.2 of the admin manual claims that I should have an "ISP Invoice"
    section, but I don't see that on my installation. I don't need an Invoice
    section, but is something broken?

    When I click Management->Server->Settings, I get the error message,
    "The following error occurred: The requested document type does not exist."
    This happened as a result of trying to fix a problem for a reseller: he could
    not empty his recycle bin. Neither could I through ISPConfig. I searched
    though the ISPConfig tables and deleted all occurances of "systems" (as I recall)
    because that was a part of his domain name. Stupid on my part, obviously.
    Is there SQL I can use to repair this?

    Backup ZIP files don't want to unzip.

    How can I use Bastille to DROP a given IP address?

    In my ISP Manager->Reseller Name->Statistics, I see no Traffic Overview.

    If I ping one of the hosted domains (ping, each reply
    comes back from a different domain that had been setup in ISPConfig.

    It seems that I must have multiple IP addresses to host multiple SSL sites
    with ISPConfig. For name-based hosting, my pre-ISPConfig custom has been
    to keep many SSL sites on one IP address, each with a separate, non-default
    port for each site. For example, I could use
    instead of the default 443, which needs no port specification. This way I
    can stack many secure web sites on one IP address. How can I use a specific
    port for SSL, not just the default of 443?

    The compilation of stats do not seem to be working.

    Thank you for any help!

    No, there's no invoice module in ISPConfig; it's part of the commercial 42goISP, but somehow it must have made it into the manuel...:eek:

    :eek: :eek: Never (as in never) edit ISPConfig tables manually!!!
    The best thing now is to uninstall ISPConfig (run
    ) and install it again.

    Do you have the latest ISPConfig version (2.1.1) installed?

    You can do this manually by running
    /sbin/route add -host <ip_address> reject
    You can't.
