Hello, I've installed webmin and virtualmin and didn't run into any problems. Webmin and virtualmin both work fine and I can login at https://serverip:10000. Apache, BIND DNS, Postfix, Dovecot, ProFTPd, and MySQL are all running.
Note: domainexample.com is just an example domain
I registered a domain (domainexample.com). I created a virtual server for my domain in virtualmin and that went smoothly. I also created ns1.domainexample.com and ns1.domainexample.com with my domain registrar (namecheap.com) and pointed them to my server ip. Then I made sure the nameservers associated with domainexample.com were ns1.domainexample.com and ns2.domainexample.com. It has been 24 hours since I did this.
My question is, domainexample.com is not resolving and I was wondering if there is some steps I may have missed when setting this up? Is there anywhere I can look to help diagnose this problem? For example, in virtualmin -> services -> DNS Domain, domainexample.com has it’s address set to 127.0.0.1. Is this correct? Or should it be pointing to my server’s ip?
In Webmin -> Servers -> Apache Webserver, I see Default Server with address "Any", where as the Virtual Server (domainexample.com) has the address "127.0.0.1".
Thanks a bunch
I’ll go back to here. First, read other posts on nameservers. Don’t try to run multiple nameservers on the same box.
If you use ifconfig -a all the NICs should show up, if one doesn’t then you have a hardware problem and your NIC isn’t installed.
You can’t even find the NIC assigned the IP, so some basic helpdesk questions. Is your server even connected to the fast ethernet, or even plugged in at all (check your cable, see if a connection light is on). I always recommend trying to make an intenet connection from the base server (nslookup, ping yahoo, something internet related) before complaining about VM.It looks very much like the IP address you’re trying to use isn’t even turned on or assigned. If you can access the internet then use Webmin to fix the assignments.
If you can access VM then go to webmin, then network, then network config and start at the beginning to make sure that your IP and correct hostname and addresses are there. You will find the network configuration all there. If you don’t find your IP listed then it’s not going to bring up on the interface. Correctly fill in the blanks. Reboot the computer. Your interface should show your IP now and shared should also show it.
hope that helps,
