ISPConfig RC2 released
ISPConfig RC2 is available for download. This release is
the first release candidate for the upcoming ISPConfig 3.0.1 final.

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 rc2 is also available as ready to run VMWare virtual
machine based on Debian 5.0.

Download of the VMWare image: (approx. 650 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.

- Support for multiple Servers ?

Is it possible to move a customer (with all his og her sites) to a different server og just a site from one server to another ?

till 16th February 2009 16:10

No, you can not move sites from one server to another in the current releases.

Maybe 2 stupid questions

- Support for virtual mail users
- Support for virtual FTP Users

Doesn't ISPconfig2 already have the options to create ftp users and mailusers? :P

Second; does anyone have a screenshot or working demo for ISPconfig3?

ISPConfig 2 uses linux system users for email and ftp and not virtual users.

Update v2 to v3
I've choice ISPConfig to manage my server but I'm in front of a big question, I can't stand for a version 3 stable and version 2 is good but I wanna keep my server up to date to newest thing you'll develop. Can you confirm to me an update to switch from v2 to v3 final release in the futur?


till 23rd February 2009 11:19

ISPConfig 2 and not be updated to ispconfig 3, even in future because they have totatlly different system requirements. But there might be a migration script available later, but this will not be an update, its a script to migrate to a new server.

For now it's not a good idea to switch from old ispconfig 2 to 3, cuz 3 has many bugs. Many things dont work as should, or are questionable. Not to mention crashes of control panel becouse of ajax etc... so it's not a good idea to switch for now. But yeah virtualisation is one of major improovements, since old fashion adding of users is like centuries old... nobody does that in such way anymore.
