Version 1.3 of the ISPConfig 3 Manual is finally available!
Version 1.3 of the ISPConfig 3 Manual is finally available (in PDF format)!
On more than 300 pages, it covers the concept behind ISPConfig (admin, resellers, clients), explains how to install and update ISPConfig 3, includes a reference for all forms and form fields in ISPConfig together with examples of valid inputs, and provides tutorials for the most common tasks in ISPConfig 3. It also lines out how to make your server more secure and comes with a troubleshooting section at the end.
Version 1.3 for ISPConfig 3.0.4 (Date: 10/25/2011)
Author: Falko Timme <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The manual can be downloaded from these two links:
* Added documentation for nginx.
* Added documentation for the virtualization module.
* Added documentation for Mailman mailing lists.
* Added documentation for folder protection (basic http authentication).
* Added documentation for accessing SquirrelMail and phpMyAdmin.
* Added various new fields to the reference.
* Updated screenshots and added new screenshots.
Now the bad news: we can’t offer it for free. But it will be available for as low as 5 EUR per copy – we think this price is more than fair for a manual with more than 300 pages.
Why Do We Charge For The ISPConfig 3 Manual?
We hope that this will allow us to employ an additional full-time ISPConfig developer who can disburden the core team. This would accelerate ISPConfig development a lot and also allow us to provide more support for ISPConfig users.
Will ISPConfig 3 Continue To be Free?
What Does the ISPConfig 3 Manual Cost?
You can download it either through an active HowtoForge subscription, or you can buy a single copy.
Downloading through a HowtoForge subscription has the advantage that you get updates of the manual for free as long as you are a subscriber, while if you buy a single copy, no updates are included (i.e., you would have to pay again for new versions of the manual).
A HowtoForge subscription costs 5 EUR for one month or 25 EUR for six months.
If you want to download a single copy of the ISPConfig 3 manual, this costs you 5 EUR which is equal to buying a one-month HowtoForge subscription.

Top job. Your efforts much appreciated.
Proper 300 page manual is a big achievement!
Looking forward to reading it, i'm ordering my copy on the hope that is speeds up Ispconfig 3 development!
Looking at the features in 3.0.3 put a smile on my face and can't hardly wait to upgrade!
Already purchased my copy. The cost is a small price to ask to support such a fantastic project.
How many people are using their ispconfig3 server for paying customers?
If you use it and like it, give a little back!
PayPal without Credit-Card
I'd like to pay for the Manual, but unfortunately I don't own a Credit-Card. I use PayPal only with my german debit account. Is there any way to offer a possiblity to german PayPal-User to pay per direct debit, since Projektfarm is registered in Germany?
Thanks is advance
Just purchased the manual, tnx!
I'm going to take a copy with my association too, but I have to wait to validate my paypal account...
I was wondering about a french version. Is it made ?
Till & Falko, I'm actually in "sick leave", so I have some time... Do you want me to begin a translation in french ? Is someone have begin this work ?
I wait for your answer.
