Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It can be funny but I cannot ping the IP address, I checked the interfaces and there are no IP aliases there (though additional IPs have been added via WHM). After the server reboot, interfaces appeared. ifconfig shows the following output now:

eth0:cp2  Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:16:3E:04:95:DB  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

The problem is that IP is not working. Type it in the browser to check. Apache is working fine and main IP address is available online.

Update - routing:

route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface UH    0      0        0 eth0 UH    0      0        0 eth0   U     0      0        0 eth0   U     0      0        0 eth0     U     0      0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0

Thank you.

are you dataceleris.com.? How do you do your routing? –  Bart De Vos Jul 27 '11 at 9:47
@TiZon main domain in the Apache config is webserver.mehlerinternational.com, I updated my post with routing, please check) –  Andrew Jul 27 '11 at 9:58
As far as I can check you don't own this IP. Where did you get it from? Who is your provider? –  Bart De Vos Jul 27 '11 at 11:13
@TiZon I am running a VPS server and this IP was provided by my VPS provider via the dashboard. Provider is vps.net –  Andrew Jul 27 '11 at 11:17
webserver.mehlerinternational.com doesn't resolve for me, I get NXDOMAIN, i.e. there is no DNS record. And your primary IP address resolves back to no-ptr.midphase.com. Is that you? –  wolfgangsz Jul 27 '11 at 13:07

Sometimes rebooting the virtual machine can make everything better.
