I have maybe one little bug.
If you one client installs 2 apps over apps installer, and after one of them remove over button delete app , this action destroy both apps.

tested on Debian 6, ISPConfig 3.0.5 Beta 1

thanks for great work!

Sorry, all look OK, because the problem is only when they are both apps in one VirtualHost (eg, )

Hello, new ispconfig look good. I am on SVN last month.

I have few notes:

Separating DBs and DB users is fine, but you should add option to create user with same name as DB in DB add form. Because now I have to go create user in one form and next create db.

Apache plugin:
I use apache and nginx as reverse proxy. I have to change every time port 80 to 82 in apache-plugin.php. Will be good, if You add some option to define default ports. Method with creating custom VHOST template is working, but it isnt clean, because in apache-plugin is code, which checking if apache is running, but if apache runs on :82 script is think that apache is stoped:


//* Test if apache starts with the new configuration file
$apache_online_status_before_restart = $this->_checkTcp('localhost',82);
//* Check if apache restarted successfully if it was online before
$apache_online_status_after_restart = $this->_checkTcp('localhost',82);

I dont know if it was "my fault"/ my system but the installer did not create the sql table "directive_snippets" in the db -> error in the websites module.

till 5th November 2012 12:18

Was this a update or fresh install and if it was a update, was the alpha installed on the system first?

cfoe 5th November 2012 12:22

It was a clean functioning updated to 3.0.5 Beta 1 via cmd

cfoe 5th November 2012 12:25

The update did not process the /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/sql/incremental/upd_0040.sql !
Thereby not adding the table. Might be the position to fix it.

till 5th November 2012 12:30

Did you get any sql errors during update?
