    Hello, Im new at this but getting there i think.

    Im using ubuntu 8.10 desktop and followed these instructions:

    all seem to go well so far but i wanted to install the ispconfig. I dl it to the /var/www/ dir and ran the set up command.... so it started the install again im following the instructions of the url i gave here. when it gets to the point of need information:

    it accepts all the way til i try to input the www
    then the url and it doesnt like it.

    How can i get thru this?

    Note FYI Im running a home based server here

    I can access it didnt get fully installed because inputing the information wasnt accepted

    Please enter your MySQL server: E.G. localhost
    this worked
    Please enter your MySQL user: E.G. root
    this worked
    Please enter your MySQL password: Your MySQL password
    this worked
    Please enter a name for the ISPConfig database: E.g. ispconfigdb
    this worked
    Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: E.g.
    What ip do i put here? IP of the machine or IP of domain
    Please enter the host name: E.g. www
    it will take www
    Please enter the domain: E.g.
    when i put the url here it comes back with url not found
    then repeats the asking for www and url

    I do have a pointed to this machine.

    Please select the protocol (http or https (SSL encryption)) to use to access the ISPConfig system: If you want to use your control panel with SSL, select 1. You can then access it under If you want to access it under, choose 2.

    If you have pointed to this machine (without www), leave the host name empty and just fill in the domain.

    this is what i did and it seemed to work

    in the setup, were u tryed to inter www, enter the name u gave ur server. i e.... server1 or maybe server2. whatever the name or ur server is at then u can log into that at http://server1(or server2, or whatever u named yours)

    hope this helps.
