How does "System -> Software Packages" work?
 
I'm trying to reinstall phpMyAdmin for ISPConfig 3.0.2.2, since it does not appear in "Tools". I've had no success using "System -> Software Packages", trying to download a phpMyAdmin package (*.deb) listed in http://packages.ubuntu.com . I get an error ("Ajax Request was not successful") for Packages when I enable http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu in Repositories.

Please, how does "System -> Software Packages" work? Thank you very much.

ISPConfig documentation
 
I've been unable to find this in the ISPConfig documentation. Of course, before asking here, I've looked for it in places like the following:

Also, I've searched this forum. The only related answers I've found are in the first link, specifically: Additional Software, and Update Manager. But this seems to be for ISPConfig 1. The version 3 I've installed is different, and those instructions don't seem to work for it.

Any help, or link to suitable documentation, would be very appreciated. Thank you.

No software packages for ISPConfig 3?
 
I'm very new to ISPConfig, and not sure if .deb packages (Debian, Ubuntu...) would be managed by ISPConfig, or only .pkg are accepted. Does anyone know about this?

I was trying to use a .deb package from Ubuntu to install phpMyAdmin, because I cannot find any .pkg sofware package for ISPConfig 3, but there are a number of them for the version 2.

I'm now thinking probably there are only .pkg packages for ISPConfig 2, and ISPConfig 3 is a new version not ready yet to install packages. Is that correct?

If this is so, then probably ISPConfig 3 is not ready yet for several other things. I'm now considering to downgrade to ISPConfig 2 for now, if anyone can confirm that ISPConfig 3 is in this early stage. Thank you.

ISPConfig 3 is NOT in this early stage. Its just not so often updating.
I think that this section (Software Packages) is still under construction.
You can install phpMyAdmin by apt-get install phpmyadmin.

Yes, I had installed phpMyAdmin already in this way (apt-get install phpmyadmin) before installing ISPConfig 3, which has recognized and integrated other well-known server software automatically, but not phpMyAdmin, at least in my case. Because of this, I was trying to reinstall it from within ISPConfig.

Symlink solution
 
I've just created a symlink /var/www/[new alias] pointing to the directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin (I prefer SFTP -WinSCP- rather than command line -PuTTY- to make symlinks). Now phpMyAdmin can be accessed with a browser from http://[IP number]/[new alias].

Since I would also like some integration of phpMyAdmin in ISPConfig, I've added this http://... address to System -> Interface Config -> Sites -> PHPMyAdmin URL. The Tools tab doesn't show phpMyAdmin yet, however when I add a database in Sites -> Database one of the icons that appear is linking correctly to phpMyAdmin.

So I guess this is it.

I'm just about to finish the ISPConfig 3 manual. It will be available in a few weeks. :)

I'm pleased to anounce that one of the first software packages for ISPConfig 3 will be a webmailer package including Roundcube and my Mailuser interface. Installed in just an instant^^

What I know the Software package part should be able to install it with the release of the ISPConfig 3.0.3, but no garantie on that and I only know that installing is yet in it, no remove or update.

Falko, thanks for the next ISPConfig 3 manual. Until then, I think I'm going to see if the administrator manual included in the ISPConfig 2 documentation can be partially used for ISPConfig 3. The ISPConfig3 Community User Manual is good but just for basic use, so a complete ISPConfig 3 manual is really needed.

Horfic, thanks as well for your note on the new webmailer package and the next ISPConfig 3.0.3 with package support.

No, this doesn't work, as ISPConfig 3 is totally different from ISPConfig 2.
