    I'm building a server to host both my sites. I know that getting a hosting package would be easier, but I'm not interested in easy, I want to learn.
    I've created zones for both sites, but when I open the Sites tab, I can't create a new site. There's nothing showing up in the domain drop down, and anything I type in that field disappears when I save. I'm pretty sure there's a step I'm missing, but I don't have the documentation and can't get it just now, so I've no idea what I'm doing wrong.
    The zone files were generated by ISPConfig, so I'm pretty sure they're right,
    Here's the zone file for one of the domains:
    ; Zone file for
    @ 100 IN SOA (
    2014011503 ; serial, todays date+todays
    28800 ; refresh, seconds
    7200 ; retry, seconds
    360000 ; expire, seconds
    86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

    ; DEFINE NS RECORDS 100 IN A 100 IN A 100 IN NS 100 IN NS

    ; A RECORDS 100 IN A 100 IN A 100 IN A

    ; MX RECORDS 100 IN MX 0

    imap 100 IN CNAME
    smtp 100 IN CNAME
    www 100 IN CNAME

    ; TXT/SPF RECORDS 14000 IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx ~all" 14000 IN SPF "v=spf1 a mx ~all" 14000 IN TXT "google-site-verification=[google sv key]
    mail._domainkey 14000 IN TXT ( "v=DKIM1; k=rsa; " p="[mail key]"

    zone files are different from websites. You may want to host dns zone files on the server but not hosting websites there... or vice versa.

    In the "Domain" field just enter the domain name or fqdn that you wanna have there. E.g. if you want to host "www.domain.tld" then just put in "domain.tld" select as auto-subdomain "www".

    However if you want to host another subdomain in a different vhost, the add a new site and add as domain name something like "blog.domain.tld"

    Thanks for the reply. When I type the domain into that space and click Save it returns errors saying "Domain is empty." There's a drop down menu there but it's empty

    You can disable the domain-module (main-config/domains) or create the domain on client/domains. afterwards you can create the web- and maildomain

    Thanks Florian! I added myself as a client and was able to add the domains through the domains link on the client page. I feel silly having missed that when I was poking around. Problem solved. Thanks again.
