    Looks as though i did follow too much to the letter - my apologies, i have removed [....] the said

    and carried out the following, results below:-

    xxxxx:~ # telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 xxxxxx.example.com ESMTP Postfix

    quit
    221 2.0.0 Bye
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    Only got as far as the this

    220 xxxxxx.example.com ESMTP Postfix

    and it just seems to hang there - so i exited
    Any thing more that i can do?

    Progressing on from the above:-

    I have carried out the following and have ran in to this error, is it ok? I have checked the line one issue but did not see anything that might result in an error.

    xxxxxx:/tmp # /etc/init.d/proftpd start
    /etc/init.d/proftpd: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `c'
    /etc/init.d/proftpd: line 1: `opyright (c) 2000-2001 SuSE GmbH Nuernberg, Germany.'

    It looks as if there is an issue or something may have been broken.

    xxxxxx:/tmp # /etc/init.d/proftpd restart
    /etc/init.d/proftpd: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `c'
    /etc/init.d/proftpd: line 1: `opyright (c) 2000-2001 SuSE GmbH Nuernberg, Germany.'

    Thanks

    This is where you have to enter
    Code:
    ehlo localhost
    What's in /etc/init.d/proftpd?

    Hi Falko
    Thanks i have now changed the first and second line as advised

    However upon exit of vi the following messaged is shown:-
    xxxxxx:~ # vi /etc/init.d/proftpd vi
    2 files to edit

    I have progress to stage 17 of your post and ran into the following when installing ISPconfg can you help with this?
    I have read the install docs.

    English is Chosen 2
    Do you want to continue with the installation? [y/n]y
    Do you accept the licence? [y/n]y
    1) standard
    2) expert
    Your Choice: 1
    Checking for MTA...
    /usr/sbin/postfix
    OK

    ISPConfig found the following MTA:
    postfix
    Is this correct? [y/n]y
    Check ftp [y/n] y
    STEP 0: Decide the signature algorithm used for certificates
    The generated X.509 certificates can contain either
    RSA or DSA based ingredients. Select the one you want to use.
    Signature Algorithm ((R)SA or (D)SA) [R]:R
    STEP 2: Generating X.509 certificate signing request for CA [ca.csr]
    You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
    into your certificate request.
    What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
    There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
    For some fields there will be a default value,
    If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
    -----
    1. Country Name (2 letter code) [XY]:UK
    2. State or Province Name (full name) [Snake Desert]:.
    3. Locality Name (eg, city) [Snake Town]:XXXXXX
    4. Organization Name (eg, company) [Snake Oil, Ltd]:XX
    5. Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) [Certificate Authority]:.
    6. Common Name (eg, CA name) [Snake Oil CA]:.
    7. Email Address (eg, [email protected]) [[email protected]]:.
    8. Certificate Validity (days) [365]:365
    STEP 3: Generating X.509 certificate for CA signed by itself [ca.crt]
    Certificate Version (1 or 3) [3]:3
    STEP 5: Generating X.509 certificate signing request for SERVER [server.csr]
    You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
    into your certificate request.
    What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.

    You should've used localhost here.

    Please try
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    afterwards?

    At what point is is best to do an update download for the system or not ?
    I assume once a decision is made on the domain name it is poss to make the relevant changes with little effort?
    Thanks again.

    Hi Falko

    In addition to my earlier post i have encounter the following issue:-

    Have a lot of fun...
    xxxxxx:~ # /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin
    xxxxxx:~ # /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin
    ^C
    xxxxxx:~ # /home/admispconfig/ispconfig
    -bash: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig: is a directory

    the command seems to hang.

    Update
    I have now re-ran the ip adders after rebooting in the browser and was able to get an error reply.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php on line 104

    londonman New Member

    Hi Falko
    carried out the following command :-

    vi /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php

    and found and removed the following:
    type'; // 'filter' = set PHP filters, 'addtype' = Set PHP addtype or 'both' = Set Filter + Addtype, suphp = SuPHP wrapper enabled, 'addhandler' = Set PHP AddHandler (nescessary for SuSE 10.2)

    YES! YES! we have lift off
    Access granted

    Now all that is left is to set up a web page and upload it to test the system.

    Any tips? - Don't forget this is new to me, but i am learning fast.
    What are the prerequisites to install on the system?
    Sorry for the trouble thus far and Thank you.
