    I set up centos 5 and installed ISPConfig from the shell using ssh. I did not know how to launch the browser so I installed the xwindows and KDE. I tried to launch the ISPConfig. (https://www.my domain.com:81) it just sits there and then times out. I am able to get the apache manual up.http://www.may domain.com. or (http://localhost) I have port 81 off on my router. also I am in the process of transferring my domain. Dose that have something to do with it. I am a bit new and am trying to understand. Thanks for the help. I am learning. Thanks to your site here.

    That is generally not recommended for a server. You should have just launched the browser on you workstation and not on the server.

    You can not connect if your domain is not transferred yet. Use the IP instead of the domain to connect to ISPConfig.

    connection with ssh

    I am using my laptop with putty. I am at the shell command line. How do I launch a browser in the ssh session?

    You don't need to launch a browser in the ssh session.You can connect to the ISPConfig thru a browser on another computer connected to the network like LAN or the Internet.

    You can use ssh to administrate the server with the shell.
    Read here for more information:

    I wouldn't use xwindows on a remote server because of data load.

    You might also want to edit /etc/resolv.conf
    vi /etc/resolv.conf
    There should be nameserver entries. For example:
    Without them your server can't resolve internet addresses.

    Hope this helps.

    PS. You might want to reinstall CentOS to get a clean install without KDE etc.

    name server dns are in

    I reinstalled the os and installed ispconfig. wow this is a geat program. Can I administer most everything from my laptop? I brought it up already and changed password. I will take a look at the shell hyperlink as well. I am starting to feel there is hope for running my server. I have been trying for a long time now to get it up and running. I was not able to find any info online, intill I found this site. What do I use to modify my script once I get it installed? I am going to sighn up with paid support soon. Thanks for all the help from ALL.. Cruz

    Yes. Either trough the ISPConfig interface or upload files with any FTP client or login to the Shell with a SSH client like putty.

    About what kind of script are you talking?

    You can use any text editor to modify PHP scripts.

    I'd use a editor with syntax highlighting. Makes editing much easier.
    For example:
