Problems installing ISPConfig Debian Sarge
 
I followed Falko's guide to the perfect debian sarge setup. No problems on that part. When I try to install ISPConfig and I get to that last part where you have to select the installation mode, I get the following error:

Checking for program httpd...
/usr/bin/httpd
OK
Checking the syntax of the httpd.conf...
Syntax error on line 7 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proftpd.conf:
Invalid command 'ServerType', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
ERROR: The syntax of your httpd.conf is not ok! Please correct the error. The installation routine stops here!

I examined the config file but can't find any invalid commands or syntax errors. Maybe I overlooked something or just made a mistake?

Can you post /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proftpd.conf here?

That looks like /etc/proftpd.conf. It's the Proftpd configuration file and has nothing to do with Apache. Did you accidentally copy it to /etc/apache2/mods-enabled? If /etc/proftpd.conf is existing, then delete /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proftpd.conf, otherwise move it to /etc.

You were right, I must have somehow copied the file to the mods-enabled directory.
Thanks for the help!

And btw I love your howtos, keep up the good work!
