    hi,

    i'm evaluating Plesk on Debian 3.1. Did a fresh install of Debian, did not install any software other than the base OS. Downloaded the Plesk autoinstaller for Debian and allowed it to do its thing.

    It finished and I can access the default homepage for my domains and such, but when I try to go to the control panel on port 8443, it immediately tries to connect to "localhost.localdomain" and the connection is refused.

    I've edited /etc/hosts and all of the config files in /etc/apache2 looking for this localhost.localdomain entry but I can't find it anywhere...

    Can someone please help me with this?

    General things (never used Debian):

    1. Have you tried access the Plesk interface by browsing to the IP instead of using the domain name?

    2. I always make sure the /etc/hosts has the following (as a minimum): (assuming my server is www.example.com)
    Code:
    # cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1            localhost.localdomain  localhost www [url]www.example.com[/url]
    my.ip.add.ress       [url]www.example.com[/url]

    Yes, I edited my /etc/hosts file to include my primary domain. I also edited every apache config file that the default/generic information in it.

    Plesk is doing the right thing when I simply visit a domain that I'm hosting. I get the default page, which is fine. The problem is when I try to access the control panel on 8443. If it was a general DNS resolving issue it would also not resolve correctly when I visit a normal domain. But it is.

    I know this has to be in a Plesk config file somewhere that I can't find. But what surprises me is that I searched and searched and searched the Forums and the Knowledgebase and there is not a single mention of this problem. I find it very hard to believe I'm the first person this has happened to.

    Anyway, where are the Plesk configuration files located? I checked /etc and there's nothing there for plesk...

    Another thing that is frustrating me about this is I installed Plesk on a test server and it worked surprisingly well. So I built a new production server and installed Plesk on it which is failing with this stupid error.

    You know, the only thing different that I'm aware of between the test server I installed Plesk on and the new production server is this: the test server was already a working Debian test box that I had installed VHCS on in the past. The new production server was a brand-spanking new fresh ftp install of Debian with no other software installed other than the base OS.

    When installing Debian to use as a Plesk server, when it gets to the point where you tell the install program which servers to install, should I go ahead and choose all of the server packages?? I saw that the Plesk autoinstaller does all of that for me anyway.

    This error is frustrating me. I'm going to try a different OS tonight if I can't get this resolved... :(
