first of all, big props to Josh for making this.
I have the following setup - one server dedicated to mail-in-a-box and another server for a website (wordpress). I did the setup by the instructions, and it’s working perfectly (only thing I changed is that the mail-in-a-box server is named mail.mydomain.com)
Reverse DNS is setup with the ISP, I’ve obtain an SSL certificate, everything working fine.
The only problem I have is that mydomain.com is now pointing to the IP address of the mail-in-a-box server, while mail.mydomain.com works as it should.
Can I install Webmin on the mail-in-a-box machine to make changes in BIND, so mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com point to the correct IP address and nameservers or can I manually change BIND configuration inside of the mail-in-a-box machine?
Thanks in advance.
You are thinking too hard. There is a section in the control panel (/admin page) called Custom DNS where you can override DNS records.
Hi Josh, sorry for bothering you again.
I’ve added two A records in the Custom DNS option:
mydomain.com A ip_of_the_server
www.mydomain.com A ip_of_the_server
Now, when I try to access mydomain.com, or www.mydomain.com, I get a ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED.
Status check for mydomain.com says:
Nameservers are set correctly at registrar. [ns1.mail.mydomain.com; ns2.mail.mydomain.com]
which is correct, but I’ve also set-up ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com as nameservers at GoDaddy for the specific domain, so it has total of 4: ns1, ns2, ns1.mail and ns2.mail.
Is it a propagation issue or something else?
Thanks in advance.
Check out what mxtoolbox.com is saying about your a Record
mxtoolbox search for a: mydomain.com is pointing me to the correct IP address, meaning, the web server
But, when I try to access mydomain.com, the browser redirects to www.mydomain.com, and throws the ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED.
Domain.com A IP
Www.domain.com CNAME Domain.com
The Other Thing: wait some Hours (days) until DNS Updates are sucessfully
You’re welcome Please give me some Feedback Wether it runs (After You have ist :D)
Yeah, no, tough luck
mydomain.com now redirects to www.mydomain.com which throws a DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.
Can I bother you with a personal message, or something, to give you the actual settings?
Yes. Just send me an pm and i will look on it
