The perfect setup guides for ISPConfig 2 are not compatible with ISPConfig 3.
But isn't it possible to uninstall ISPConfig 2 first and then install ISPConfig 3? The server is able to run without ISPConfig so to uninstall it would not be a problem. Right?
I'm running ISPConfig 2 for a couple of weeks now and I really see the potential of the system. It works perfectly! Though, I am very interested in the new version to prevent the creation of real users. Virtual users will be better.
