Install Jailkit after ISPConfig

I have ISPConfig 3.0.3 installed but Jailkit is not installed.
I see the feature when adding SSH users in ISPConfig but it does not have any effect.
I read somewhere Jailkit must be installed prior to ISPConfig. :confused:
Is that true ?
What can I do ?

Thank you,

What can I do ?
Install jailkit, then download the ispconfig tar.gz and run the update.php script and select to reconfigure services during update.

Thank you Till, I'll do that since I have no choice.
There are some websites configured on the server.
Will I loose anything after this update ?

I have installed jailkit using your procedure on the ISPConfig manual (changed jailkit-2.5 by jailkit-2.13, and automake1.9 by automake1.10).

I did and update of ISPConfig from 3.0.3 to using the script by reconfiguring the services.

Now I do

ks33054:~# jk_list
Pid    User    Jail              Command                                 
25201  postfix /var/spool/postfix /usr/lib/postfix/pickup -l -t fifo -u -c
26361  postfix /var/spool/postfix /usr/lib/postfix/tlsmgr -l -t unix -u -c
27779  postfix /var/spool/postfix /usr/lib/postfix/anvil -l -t unix -u -c 
ks33054:~# jailkit
-bash: jailkit: command not found

But If I setup a shell user with Chroot Shell from None to Jailkit, then when I connect to the server by ssh with this user, it can still browse all the directories.

Do I need to configure something in command line ?

Thank you,
