Hi AcidKat,
you have to download so called Tarbal from
Tarbal is actualy compressed file containing whole software. You can uncompres it (depending on your operational system) in different ways.
If you'll download it onto Windows I will suggest to use 7zip, free compressing software available on Make sure that you will uncompress tarbal twice (first ISPConfig-2.2.21.tar.gz file and afterwards uncompress newly created ISPConfig-2.2.21.tar file) as it is compressed twice.
Alternatively you can download newest tarbal to Linux by using following command:
Make sure that you'll download right version of ISPconfig as it must be the same as you have installed on your server. If you did not upgraded to newest version go to and find file matching your installation.
Afterwards you can unpack it by using command:
tar xvfz ISPConfig-2.2.21.tar.gz
.Next continue with steps described above. When you finnish you can safely remove both, tarbal and unpacked files from your computer using commands
rm ISPConfig-2.2.21.tar.gz
rm -r install_ispconfig
Make sure that you will NOT download tarball to location where is your current installation as you can break it. All above written commands have to be issued from the same directory. You can use e.g.
cd /opt/
to go to opt directory and execute all commands from here.
I hope this help you.
Safe computer? Only when unplugged.
