    I have read that nice article made by tado.

    Now I have some questions.

    The VMware I think this is a partition already on the Harddisk ?.

    I can see, that tado only is using one NIC.

    Is he then using a hardware router in the front of his server ?

    Thanks in advance for replies.

    No. VMWare is the name of the harddisk. I used the VMWare virtualisation software to write the howto. In your case, the harrdisk may ba nemaed seagate, quanrum, maxtor or any other harddisk manufacturer.

    I used a hardware router, but this does not matter. This is not a dialup setup, it is a setup that you may use either with a hardware router or with a server in a datacenter that is directly connected to the internet.

    Hi till.

    Thanks for a fast comming back with reply to my queries.

    Ok about the VMWare being the name of the harddisk.

    And then it is confirmed that you use a router. At the start of reading your setup tool, I had the idea, that you would use 2 NIC's. The reason for that is, that I do it myself yet on a Clarkconnect server, that I want to close, and install a SuSE 10.0 using your advice.

    I had not the idea about a dialup setup.

    I'm on DSL here 2048/512.

    If using 2 NIC's instead of a router, what if anything should then be changed with reference to your server setup article.

    Thanks again

    What do you want to do with your two network cards?

    I want to have the one for the WLAN, and the other one for LAN.

    But why don't you use your router for it? It should have a built-in switch.

    You are quite right, and now I have the router connected :)

    Works excellent, and I'm setting up the server at the present.

    I have reached the Apache section, but as I should run SuSEconfig, there is a claim, and I'm sure that's because I have modified the by hand. My experience is, that it gives that sort of problems.

    Shall I start another thread to show what I mean ?

    SuSEconfig is always complaining about /etc/postfix/ You can ignore it.

    I know, and thanks for that.

    I have the server up running now, but I have to examine why I cannot calle it by

    Hello again.

    Now I'm having a problem.

    After the install of ISPConfig, I rebooted as mentioned in the online manual.
    Alslo I ran the quotacheck:



    quotaon -avug

    (should that be done after each restart ?.)

    Now after the reboot, I cannot call the ISPConfig.

    Before I could do it using the https:ip.for.mydomain:81

    I could not use the, as I had the idea that I could, as I have set www during the install.

    Nor could I find a logfile where I could see what happens when I call ISPConfig.

    Is there a logfile for it, and where is it placed ?.

    Do anyone else have ideas to solve the problem ?

    Thanks in advance.

    The ISPConfig server did not ran.

    I found the command here in this forum:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

    Telle me please how many services do i have to manually start up after a boot, as I have at least encoutered 3-4 or so ?

    chkconfig --add ispconfig_server
    to make ISPConfig start at boot time.

    No, just once.

    What do you think is the reason, that I can call ISPConfig using the server's IP, but not with it's url ?

  17. falko

    falko Super Moderator Howtoforge Staff

    I guess it's a wrong or non-existing DNS record.

    Can you post the IP address and the URL you're trying to use to connect to ISPConfig?
