Hello everyone !
I’m web developer from Russia. (and server administrator from a little time)
I’ve just bought a new server in datacentre.
I had a clear CentOS 5.3 installed on it.
I’ve got ip for it (example x.x.x.x further) and a hostname (x.x.x.x.colo.static.dc.domain.tld)
First, i’ve added string to /etc/hosts like:
after that command hostname -f prints x.x.x.x.colo.static.dc.domain.tld
Then i set up dns. I registered domain (example: site.com) and created to subdomains: ns1 and ns2 and set IPs for them (for ns1 = ip of this server, for ns2 = ip of my another server with virtualmin).
I added Virtual Server for this domain (site.com) and in dns settings for it i set nameservers ns1.site.com and ns2.site.com. In Address part i’ve also added records
Then, i’ve downloaded virtualmin install script and installed it…
All works fine, but some problems:
- I’m trying to add simply another Virtual Server (first i added site.com, as i wrote before) and i get such error: “Failed to create virtual server : A ProFTPd virtual server with the same IP address already exists”.
My ProFtpd config : (generated by virtualmin)
ServerName “ProFTPD server”
ServerIdent on “FTP Server ready.”
AccessGrantMsg “User %u logged in.”
Use this to excude users from the chroot
DefaultRoot ~ !adm
Use pam to authenticate (default) and be authoritative
AuthOrder mod_auth_pam.c* mod_auth_unix.c
Default to show dot files in directory listings
Allow to resume not only the downloads but the uploads too
Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
Disable sendfile by default since it breaks displaying the download speeds in
ftptop and ftpwho
This is where we want to put the pid file
Normally, we want users to do a few things.
Define the log formats
LogFormat default “%h %l %u %t “%r” %s %b”
LogFormat auth “%v [%P] %h %t “%r” %s”
UserAlias anonymous ftp
I want an ability to login to Virtual Server’s ftp through a domain like ftp.site.com, ftp.site2.com, ftp.site3.com etc.
- I’m trying to add server in DNS Cluster Slave Server i got error “Failed to connect to fastrpc.cgi : Failed to connect to x.x.x.x:10003 : No route to host”
Friends! Help me plz !
Best Regards, Konstantyn
ohh, config commented lines became big letters !!
“Failed to connect to fastrpc.cgi : Failed to connect to x.x.x.x:10003 : No route to host”
you have to open ports in your firewall: 10000 - 10100
connecting to ftp can be done by site.com; site2.com etc.
ronald, Thanks !
I’ll try your advice.
And what about ftp ? When i’m trying to add a new one Virtual Server, i get error:
“Failed to create virtual server : A ProFTPd virtual server with the same IP address already exists”
I listed proftpd config before.
Help me plz
Did you try to create a different domainname or a subserver like sub.site.com? Did you do a Re-Check Config under Virtualmin- System Settings?
i made recheck and got:
" The Suexec command on your system is configured to only run scripts under /home, but the Virtualmin base directory is /opt/sites. CGI and PHP scripts run as domain owners will not be executed.
… your system is not ready for use by Virtualmin."
How to configure Suexec to run scripts in other directory ? (i need other directory, cause more disk space on /opt)
I dont know exactly, but it seems you need to recompile suexec pointing to /opt/sites instead of the default /home
also Im not sure this will work with virtualmin, can you mount /opt to /home instead?
how to do that ? how to mount /opt to /home ??
or how to recompile Suexec ?
You can download the apache source for your servers OS.
compile it with: ./configure --enable-suexec --with-suexec-docroot=/opt/sites --with-suexec-userdir=public_html --with-suexec-caller=apache --with-suexec-logfile=/var/log/httpd/suexec.log
Then run a make, and use the copy in support/suexec.
while doing a ./configure, make sure the line and paths are correct for your system.
you can als try to symlink opt to home, but Im not sure virtualmin likes it that way. You’ll need a second opinion
so, i don’t need to delete apache that is working now ?
i can simply dowload the last version and compile it ?
i’ve fixed problem with suexec.
I rechecked virtualmin’s config. All works fine!
But i can’t create more than 1 virtual server !!! I always get error ““Failed to create virtual server : A ProFTPd virtual server with the same IP address already exists””
help me plz !!!
Hey i start to say i like this control panel very much but i also have problem with proftp, “A ProFTPd virtual server with the same IP address already exists”
cmon can some one please help? i use the free version but once i know all is working fine i will defently buy this for my server.
Are you enabling the “IP-based virtual FTP enabled” feature?
That’s not the same as plain old FTP – you wouldn’t want to enable that unless you have a dedicated IP for each Virtual Server.
