    So I install ISPconfig and it istalls perfectly...yeahhh....then I realizes that I made a stupid mistake....I did not chose expert mode and did not change the www folders to /var/www....is there a way to do this at this point? or do I have to remove/reinstall? If I do, how do I do this.

    Also, once I get it up and running the way I want it...do I need to put the information of the virtual hosts in the httpd.conf file, or does ISPconfig do that?

    Open /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php, the ISPConfig database (especially the table isp_server) and replace /home/www with /var/www everywhere. Also do it in the ISPConfig web interface. Restart ISPConfig afterwards:
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
    This is handled by ISPConfig. Otherwise you wouldn't need a control panel, if you had to do this manually.;)

    I opend up both of those files and for the root documents there was:

    DocumentRoot "/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web"
    So I changed that to:

    How do I do that?

    Please undo that! :eek: I said you should replace /home/www with /var/www, not replace /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web with /var/www!

    You could use phpMyAdmin for that, or you do it on the command line which can be a bit complicated.
