Posted August 19, 2014 3.9k views

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?
