Default ISPConfig Beta released

ISPConfig Beta is available for download. This release is
for testing only, it is not for production use.

ISPConfig 3 is a new Hosting Control Panel rewritten from scratch. ISPConfig 3
is not a direct update for ISPConfig 2. Do not install it on a ISPConfig 2 server.

Features of ISPConfig 3 compared to ISPConfig 2

- Support for virtual mail users
- Support for virtual FTP Users
- Support for multiple Servers
- Support for splitting of services to multiple servers
(Database, web, FTP and DNS can be on different servers).


The software itself can be downloaded here:

ISPConfig Beta is also available as ready to run VMWare virtual
machine based on Ubuntu 8.04 (Jeos).

Download of the VMWare image: (approx. 600 MB)

When you run the vmware image the first time you will be asked to keep
or create a MAC address. Select "keep", otherwise the networking wont work.

The root password of the VM is set to "ispconfig", the IP address is and has to be reconfigured in /etc/network/interfaces
to meet your network requirements. The ISPconfig Interface login is:

User = admin
Password = admin.


- Added support for openSUSE 11.0
- Added support for Fedora 9
- Added support for CentOS 5.2
- Added russian translation.
- Updated Dutch language files. Many thanks to Hans for the translation.
- Addad a function to disable poip3 and imap per user account.
- Disabled spam and virus notifications for the admin user. Can be overridden by the policies in mysql.
- Added a keepalive script to keep the session alive as long as the browser window is open.
- Added a tools module.
- Added a form to change the language and password of the current user.
- Added translation functions for the tabs of forms.
- Network Configuration through the ISPConfig interface for debian and compatible linux distributions.
- Disabled suphp_UserGroup directive by default to make the setup compatible with the suphp compile options from most linux distributions. If you want some extra security, enable this directive again and recompile mod_suphp with the the option --with-setid-mode=paranoid
- Users can reset their login password now. The password is sent by email to the email address listed in the client account settings.
