I decided to try out Plesk 7 on my SM box but I am having a suprisingly difficult time in getting my webpages displayed, possibly due to the DNS setup. I've read the Plesk documentation a couple times and for some reason still having difficulty, any help would be great.
My first question is when you're in the DNS settings for a particluar domain does one need to "switch" and add the server matrix DNS address as the master since that is the DNS address my registar has for my domain?
Secondly, are the HTML files placed in the domains "HTTPDocs" folder and they are ready to be browsed, or is there something else that needs to be done before they can be viewed?
We have been using plesk 7 with no issues, once domain is created, if DNS are resolving fine, it should display default page from plesk, nothing else to do.
You have 2 options for DNS :
1. use external name servers and point to your server ip
2. configure your own name server at plesk, like ns.yourdomain.com . you need to create this entry also in yourdomain.com registrar . Once created, then you can assign all your domains with those name servers
