    Hi Everyone,
    Can any one shed some light on this problem.
    I have an ispconfig system ip on a DMZ network.
    Access between normal network 192.168.1.x and the DMZ works fine. I have created a website - enabled php + mysql (not php safe mode) and all works fine. I have installed squirrelmail 1.4.5 which work fine both internal (I set my windows hosts file to point to the domain name and not the ip address e.g and from the web. (outside my network)
    I also installed uebimiau mail as well (2.7.2) now this works fine internally, but when trying it from the web, for example trying to read an email it times out.
    Also I installed Xoops 2.2.3a again this works fine from inside my network, but I see funny things happen outside, for example I can login as admin, but cannot get to the admin page, it times out, and also I get a mysql error at the bottom of the page (Warning [Xoops]: Smarty error: unable to read resource: "db:system_block_online.html" in file class/smarty/Smarty.class.php line 1084) but I dont get any errors and can see the admin page from the internal network.
    I checked the apache logs and the only message I could find was this : [error] an unknown filter was not added: PHP

    I don't understand why it all works from the lan to the DMZ but from the outside world to the webservers it's not working.
    I should also mention here I'm using centos 4.2 which comes supplied with php4 and not 5, but I set the /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.ini as according to instructions on the FC4 build.

    Suggestions please?

    Have you setup ISPConfig with an Domain or only with an IP?

    $go_info["server"]["server_url"] = "";

    Server hostname is webserver and my domain name is :

    There's an A record for, and if your IP address is then it's correct.
    Did you forward port 81 from your router to your ISPConfig server? Because I can't connect to it, too.

    no i didn't forward port 81. I can enable it but thought I would be more secure during testing without. I've enabled it now, can you try it ?

    Not sure why this would affect normal traffic on port 80 ?

    Still not working.

    It doesn't affect traffic on port 80, but ISPConfig's Uebimiau package is running on port 81.

    However, I can see the "Shared IP" page on

    I setup https last night and for some reason Uebimiau mail now works fine, I can read my mail it does not time out :)
    I installed my own copy of Uebimiau mail because port 81 is blocked from work.
    I will also test xoops and report back.
