    Ok, i have change the server IP in so I can access ISPConfig withouth any trouble. I changed the server IP in

    Go to Management -> Server -> Settings

    And then I went to mysql and changed all the old IPs to the new one. Then I went to the accounts and re-saved. Then to the DNS Manager and re-saved. The problem is that no configuration has changed in the bind directory... so, what should I do now?

    Ok, I've modified the files by hand. I have a question though.
    Do i have to go to NIC and configure all my different domains to point out to the new IP for the DNS server?? I mean, I have only two domains, but what if I had 100??? :mad: :p

    Yes, you will have to change the IP address for all of your domains, or at least the IP address of the domain that points to your nameserver and then change the IP addresses in your nameserver.

    If you have several hundred domains, you can do it with an SQL update in the ISPConfig database and not the interface :)

    Hi Till:

    Yes I knew that, but I was refering to something else. For example, when I bought some X domain I had to go to There I configured the DNS (domain and IP) for the domain I had bought. If I bought another domain and wanted to use the same DNS server, then I had to go to NIC and configure the domain and IP of the DNS server I wanted to use for that other specific domain.

    So if my DNS server was and I had bought, I had to go a configure in
    DNS server:
    IP: 200.104.XX.XX

    for the domain

    Then as my IP has changed, I would have to go to and update the changed IP? So that was my concern if I had 100 domains, I would have to update 100 times?

    Anyway, I did not update it in one domain I have, and it worked anyway, so I guess it is not *so* important? Maybe is more importante de domain than the IP in the nic configuration. Do you have to make this type of configurations when you bye a domain?
    Thanks Till.
