just installed 3.0.5 in nginx debian cluster with unison
looks fantastic. but aps installer has problems.
tried with a basic wordpress site works great even though on the control panel it said installation error.
the real problem is you cant delete the app installation after it just sits there.

Thats a known problem and described in the bugtracker.

Here's another feature that isn't listed above:

- You can now send emails to all customers or to groups of customers (called "circles").

It sounds really well, it will be really interesting to use ISPConfiq 3.0.5- alpha 1 for the purpose of testing... going to download this app that is really looking full of new features.

1) in 3.0.5. alpha is possible create MySQL DB without User - it is confusing for the client.

2) it would be good to action create a DB user as in same dialog of the create DB , same as 3.0.4. version ( because I mean for to many clients will not understand they must first establish a user in step 1 and in step 2 create the database ).
