Default Hints installing ISPc3 on a vhost / virtuahost at s4y


i just installed ISPCONFIG 3 ( on a vhost ( with debian etch standard installation according to the documentation.

As this is a virtual host it might be the reason why some things didn't work as expected. So I decided to write a few hints how I solved it.

1. the pure-ftp problem.

issue: pure-ftpd not starting - syslog: [ERROR] Unable to switch capabilities : Operation not permitted

solved by: compiling pure-ftpd without capabilities.
I know there are ready compiled deb i386 packets to download anywhere, but I needed it for amd64. So I compiled by myself.
You can download it here:
Install it with
dpkg -i paketname.deb
2. I don't know why, but SMTP, let's say Authentication SASL didnt work for me. I noticed that there were some differences in the /etc/default/saslauthd
So I did:
vi /etc/default/saslauthd

and changed these parameters:

OPTIONS="-c -m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"
3. My mailrules didn't work
I tried many things. At the end this resolved the problem:
I comented out that optin in postfix

receive_override_options = no_address_mappings
So perhaps some have similar problems, and this might help.

By the way I migrated from ISPc2 to a ISPc3 system.
A smooth way to transfer the web data from one to another server was lftp(apt-get install lftp):

lftp -u web12_admin,ftppassword -e "set ftp:list-options "-a" && mirror --allow-chown /web /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web && bye"
Using that command I moved successfully some joomla and wordpress sites.

Of course additinally you have to export/import the SQL tables...
