ISPconfig & Digital Ocean DNS managememt

  • Posted August 19, 2014

I am moving my websites from my old webhoster to my droplet I have installed debian-wheezy-nginx-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3 I first create a site in ispconfig after that in isp config i add the domains to dns reatimng the following records A [my.ip.add.ress.] 0 3600 A mail [my.ip.add.ress.] 0 3600 A www [my.ip.add.ress.] 0 3600 MX mail.mydomain. 10 3600 NS 0 3600 NS 0 3600

But this doesnt seem to work Should i create a DNS entry first at digitaloceans DNS tool do i have to set them both in ISPconfig and the DNS tool or only at the Digital Oceans DNS tool?
