How stable/secure is the server after the Perfect Setup (Ubuntu 6.06) install?
 
Hello everybody this is my first post on howtoforge. I've been reading howtoforge.com for some time and I find it very usefull.

Anyway my first question is if the server after preforming the perfect setup (ubuntu 6.06) needs more configuration - security and optimization wise?

I don't need bleeding edge, I only need the software from the "perfect setup" howto + webmail.

I also wonder if and with what frequency should I update the system or I can set it once and forget it.

Best regards.

It's totally up to you. It's a good idea to turn on the ISPConfig firewall after you've installed ISPConfig. Also have a look at some HowtoForge tutorials: http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/3 and http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/9

It's also totally up to you. You might want to check for updates once a week or so:
Code:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Will istalling and tweaking other parametars of the system affect the ISPConfig configuration and work?

I would also like to install ClamAV for my mail server - can I just apt-get install clamav? Will that work for this setup?

cheers

It depends on what you want to tweak...

ISPConfig comes with ClamAV, so there's no need to install a second one.

What about SpamAssassin? Do I need to set something or it will work just fine the way it is?

thanks a lot for all the information.

I'd say it works fine as it is, but don't forget acitvating it for each emailaccount ;)

And set it to:
discard 3.0

Works (worked, now ISPConfig is broken...) fine for me!
