Hi!

I'm a linux newbie, and have had great luck setting up Debian. I stumbled on to your site and decided to set up my server as your "Perfect Setup" instructs. I am curious about something though...

There is a section in the document where during the Apache setup, the document instructs the reader to comment out all the "AddApplication" lines that reference PHP documents, as shown below:

Edit /etc/mime.types and comment out the following lines:

#application/x-httpd-php phtml pht php
#application/x-httpd-php-source phps
#application/x-httpd-php3 php3
#application/x-httpd-php3-preprocessed php3p
#application/x-httpd-php4 php4

When I do this, none of these document types are handled properly, they are just spit out in the browser without being processed by PHP. By uncommenting the lines, they work as I would expect.

Why would you want to comment out these lines? Maybe I'm missing something... please let me know.

In addition to that, I am wondering if it would be possible to document what all the lines setting up Postfix are doing. There's a good chunk of commands that are fed to it without explaining what they are for.

Thanks! Other than that, that's a great document!

Hi Jeff,

the Howtos a prepared for the installation of the OpenSource ISP Controlpanel ISPConfig. ISPConfig configures the document types on a per site / domain basis. If they are not commented out, ISPConfig will not be able to turn them on in the vHosts.

Excellent, makes sense. I look forward to installing ISPConfig.

Thanks!
