    first i must say ispconfig is a very great piece of work !
    i'm just another noob on linux, spend a lot of time with bad manuals or how-tos... to bring my dedicated server to work without all that visas and confixx crap.

    since i found the how-to for SuSE 9.3 from falko the things get better day by day and i guess i'm now also infected with the linux virus ;)

    i wonder how i can change the default port 81 of ispconfig into another one after installation ?
    maybe i'm just blind but i don't find any informations on that...
    hope someone can help - thx

    After installation please do the following:

    Stop the ISPConfig system: /etc/rc.d/init.d/ispconfig_server stop (RedHat/Mandrake) or /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server stop (SuSE).

    Open the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/, look for the variable


    and change port 81 to your new port.

    Afterwards, edit the file /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and replace all occurrences of port 81 with your new port number. Then restart the
    ISPConfig system: /etc/rc.d/init.d/ispconfig_server start (RedHat/Mandrake) or /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start (SuSE).

    Dont forget to activate the new port in your firewall settings!

    One thing to add: Don't use port 80 or 443 for ISPConfig or any other port that's already in use on your system... ;)

    Of course, A Linux newb screws up his new ispconfig install by:

    Adding the frigging external ip address to the iplist in ISPConfig.

    Here's one for you Falko, How can I change the IPList back to default FROM OUTSIDE ISPConfig? Since I changed it, I can't access it anymore from

    I only got to look at it for like five mins :(

    thx tb

    Do you need an answer to your question or an answer from falko ;)

    Open the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/ and cahnge the line:

    $go_info["server"]["network_config"] = 1;


    $go_info["server"]["network_config"] = 0;

    Then restart your server and login to the ISPConfig controlpanel to change the IP's in the IPList.

    General remark: Please make a new thread in the Forum if your question is not related to the topic of the thread.

    Oops, sorry and sorry. I looked in so many forums, I forgot which one I was in.

    Any answer would do, I was just expecting Falko to find it first. :rolleyes:

    Actually it is sort of related (now) because my system keeps telling me that:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/ is a "new" file.

    Could that file have been created in another directory?

    Thanks for the response, I'll do better next time.

    No, if ISPConfig has been installed correctly the file must be in zhis location.

    Is thsi your first logib in the ISPConfig admin interface?

    Instructions still valid for ISPconfig2/IPcop?

    as a real newbie in this forum I must say, thank you, got a lot of help and hints from HowtoForge over some time.

    Just now I really need to know if the method given earlier in this thread is still valid.
    I just installed "perfect server ISPconfig2 on Ubuntu 9.10" and since before I am running
    IPcop as firewall to internet.
    As soon as I put ISPconfig on my DMZ and tried to reach it I realized IPcop is not
    allowing access via port 81.
    Is there new edits to make or do I just follow "all of the above"?

    Thanks and regards,

    Yes, it's still valid.
