Adding IP's to Virtualwin

Ok,

I just moved from a shared to a dedicated. Setting up VirtaulWin required fixing a few things, but now I’m headed in the right direction.

I’m trying to move things from the old host to the new one. I was given a single IP at first which they set up one domain on, and I’ve just added a second domain to it.

Now I’m ready to start moving my ‘big’ site, and they gave me two additional IP’s which I get with my plan. They made some config changes and restarted my box and now these IP’s are ‘available to me.’

What do I need to do to add these IP’s to virtualwin?

Hey Rob,

You don’t need to do anything to make them available. You can now just assign the IPs to new sites on creation (in earlier versions of Virtualmin, if the IP was already running, Virtualmin would refuse to use it on the assumption that you’d brought it up for a reason–but it’s so common for service providers to pre-allocate and setup the addresses that it made sense to make Virtualmin less clever in this regard).

So, when you fill out the form to create the domain, just give it the IP you want the new domain to live on.
