    Hi there, After perform a ISPConfig install, everything is working now I went to register one domain as an official nameserver and and added the ip's for each nameserver.

    Then I went to create a site and added a domain for that customer, I did that on friday but is monday and site is not running.

    On my server I did: dig and I got:
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    and then when I use dig
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    I got same thing, but when I check on Godaddy's record is pointing to with ip

    Kind of lost!!!

    Did you create DNS records for your domain?
    What are the authoritative name servers for your domain?

    You can not browse websites in ISPConfig by IP. If you use the IP you will always get he shared IP page. You must use the domain of the web, e.g.

    Which nameservers do you use on your local computer? Maybe you should use different ones.
    If your server is in the same local network than your client PC, then it's possible that your router doesn't support loopbacks into your local network.

    Server is in: and 203 router is in 202 and other clients use Dynamic DHCP! It might affect??

    Also can you Install SquirreMail to be used with ISPConfig ?? and phpmyadmin how to integrate it?? I've check on manual and refers and but need some guidance before mess configuration up.

    You can use phpMyAdmin ( ) and Webmail ( ) from the ISPConfig web site and install them in ISPConfig using the Update function: Management -> Update Manager -> Update.
    But the webmail is Uebimiau, not Squirrelmail. If you want to use Squirrelmail, you can create a web site in ISPConfig for it and then install Squirrelmail in that web site.
    Or you install it in a new folder in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web, then it will be served by ISPConfig's Apache on port 81.

    Well I must said that am happy now, I've seen webmail and phpmyadmin installed as simple as a three clicks.

    What happen if I create a database for one of my users directly on phpmyadmin, rather than use what ISPConfig suggest me.
    ie. DB Name: web10_db4 DB User: web10_u2
    db name: site00_mambo user: site00_adm

    Can that work for several sites being site00, site01, site02, etc.

    Also what will be the proper Pop3 and smtp settings for email clients? and ??

    You can use the ISPCOnfig functions to create mySQL datanbases or PHPMyadmin. Just use the interface you prefer :)

    That depends on your DNS settings. You can use any domain that oints zo the IP of your server, you can even use the IP itself.

    If you create A-Records or Cname-Records for and in the authoritive nameserver for hat point to your server, you can use and as pop3 and smtp server for your clients.

    If I got it right when I create an new site I need to check DNS and DNS-MX then I can use pop: and smtp:

    Thank you

    1) You server has to be authoritive for the domain
    2) If 1 is true, you will have to create the A-Records for pop and smtp in the ISPConfig DNS-Manager.

    Checking the create DNS and DNS MX checkboxes creates only a SOA record and an MX record.

    So I need to add a A-record from a record, but what am concern is I was looking on Godaddy on Domain Host Summary and there is no place to add A or MX Records??

    Should I remove from domain set to and Nameservers and see if there will exist A and MX records without causing to be down??

    Thank you

    Is godaddy the authoritive nameserver for your domain or is your local server authoritive?

    Humm am kind of confused, let me break it down:
    I own 3 domains for asesoriasit. the .info is set as official nameserver and is - and - I never add A or Mx record to any domain because I use previously cpanel webhost manager, now that I move out to ISPConfig want it to know what to do to be able to set email clients as cpanel did for incoming and outgoing.

    I hope that it makes more clear my question.

    You must create an A record for that points to your ISPConfig system, then your users can use as incoming and outgoing mail server.
