Newbie help with Centos 5.5 and ISPConfig 3


Hi All

I have just started my career in web based systems and though that I would start at the very beginning by firstly learning Linux and web server setup.

I have managed to install Centos 5.5 and it's various associations, php, proftpd, mysql, phpmyadmin, bind, dovecot, postfix etc.... and also ISPConfig 3.

After quite a few teething issues and bugs I have managed to get ISPConfig working (with a test site, client, ftp user etc... setup up within) and also phpmyadmin but I am still experiencing quite a few issues in the form of:

1 - When trying to connect to the test site setup in ISPConfig via Filezilla from another macnine on the network it appears to recognise the server and connect to it but the user credentials e.g. user name and password are not being accepted and all I get is a 530 error, even though I am using the correct credentials and also including the user name prefix in front it (of which I have tried all possible prefix possibilities)

2 - I respect to the DNS I am not 100% sure that I have configured this correctly. During Centos setup I assigned the server an IP address and also a domain name. I can access the server across the network via the IP address, but not by the domain name I have assigned to it which makes me think that I have not configured something correctly. I know this is a bit of a "how long is a piece of string question" but an idea of a starting point would be fantastic or if anyone has experienced this issue before and found a solution, any pointers would be wicked!!

Apologies for the length of the above questions and I hope that I have posted in the correct section ans in the correct manner!!

Look forward to any response, it will be very much appreciated!!

Many Thanks, Gardnico

Gardnico,

I do not use ISPConfig, so I cannot help you in that aspect. However, as far as the DNS problem, it appears that you've assigned an IP address and a hostname to your server statically. However, are you using that machine as your DNS server? If not, you need to be sure you add a DNS entry on whatever DNS server you're pointing your workstation to. Since you're not using DHCP in conjunction with DNS, your DNS server has no way of knowing what IP address or hostname you assigned to the server in question. The hostname that you gave the machine is kind of irrelevant from a network standpoint, because a hostname is really just a way to associate a work with an IP address so that you access devices via names instead of numbers, and if that information is not populated on your DNS server, the network has no way to associate the two.

HTH,

KaBar's Edge

There's been some recent threads about Filezilla, maybe search LQ and read those for clues, else start by testing if the connection works with any other FTP client and providing server and client-side configuration and logs of the session.
