ISPConfig Beta released
ISPConfig Beta is available for download. This release is
for testing only, it is not for production use.

ISPConfig 3 is a new Hosting Control Panel rewritten from scratch. ISPConfig 3
is not a direct update for ISPConfig 2. Do not install it on a ISPConfig 2 server.

Features of ISPConfig 3 compared to ISPConfig 2

- Support for virtual mail users
- Support for virtual FTP Users
- Support for multiple Servers
- Support for splitting of services to multiple servers
(Database, web, FTP and DNS can be on different servers).


The software itself can be downloaded here:

ISPConfig Beta is also available as ready to run VMWare virtual
machine based on Debian Linux.

Download of the VMWare image: (approx. 600 MB)

When you run the vmware image the first time you will be asked to keep
or create a MAC address. Select "keep", otherwise the networking wont work.

The root password of the VM is set to "ispconfig", the IP address is and has to be reconfigured in /etc/network/interfaces
to meet your network requirements. The ISPconfig Interface login is:

User = admin
Password = admin.


- Individual Email filtering rules for mailboxes.
- Added editor for the server config ini.
- Create MySQL databases for websites.
- Simple firewall configuration form.
- Many bugs were fixed, see bugtracker:

97% CPU on Clamav

I like the new Gui =)

I just did a fresh install of ISPConfig latest, all works fine but i got 97% CPU on Clamav, i just reboot my server, vmware ESX 3.0.2 om Quad Core with 16GB (nothing to do at work =) )

Is it possible to use loadbalancer (like )for NFS and mysql cluster in this new ispconfig ?

I notise that after logon timeout som error "LOGIN_REDIRECT:/index.php" and i can get back to login screen whit pressing F5

My configuration will be as follow:

ISPConfig server IP xx.xx.xx.xa
WEB Server IP xx.xx.xx.xb
DNS server IP xx.xx.xx.xc
MySQL, E-mail, secondary DNS servers xx.xx.xx.xd

Do I have to install all services on the ISPConfig box, or just php5-cli?

Best regards

You will have to install at least apache, mysql and mod_php and php5-cli on the ispcoinfig server to run the interface.

I don´t know if it is a bug ore if i done someting wrong, but i get a error msg when try to read the log files

cut from Gui below.

- No Refresh -2510153060

Unable to read /var/log/mail.log


till 21st July 2008 16:24

Thats not a bug, you will have to make the mail log files readable for the user of the webserver by executing:

chmod +r /var/log/mail.log

This is done once by the installer, but it may be changed back by e.g. linux system updates.
