Default New to Linux - need help downloading ISPConfig

I'm new to Linux and command lines. I followed the instructions in the howto "The Perfect Server - Fedora 7" and have reached the point to install ISPConfig. But, I can't find instructions on how to download ISPConfig using a command line. Please help!

You can use the wget Linux command.

syntax: wget <URL>

In order the download and get the program ready:

1) Move to which ever directory you want to download to

2) Type:
wget http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/s...-2.2.xx.tar.gz

Replacing XX with the latest stable release.

3) Once the file has been downloaded type:
tar -xvzf ISPConfig-2.2.xx.tar.gz

this will uncompress the files

4) Move into the directory and install.

That should get you setup.

Yep. Thanks to advice I've downloaded and unzipped the file to a /download directory that I created specially. And yes, when I look, lo and behold ls /download/install_ispconfig/ reveals that there is a file called setup. Excellent.

As I have never run anything like this before please, how do I actually install ISPConfig from the files I have got and what directory should I put the installation into, or does it do it 'all on its own'?

Example shown below is with verion ISPConfig 2.2.15.

1) go to the /tmp dir
cd /tmp
2) download the file (with wget)
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ispconfig/ISPConfig-2.2.15.tar.gz?download
3) unpack the file
tar xvfz ISPConfig-2.2.15.tar.gz
4) step into the directory that the ISPConfig-2.2.15.tar.gz is unpacked in
cd install_ispconfig
5) run setup
ISPconfig will create all the needed directories.

Make sure that you are root when doing all this.
Login with your username, and type
It will now ask for the root password.

More info here: http://www.ispconfig.org/manual_installation.htm (scroll down about 1/2 a page, and you will see the install info)
Never execute code written on a Friday or a Monday.

Thank you Edge. That all worked perfectly.

Only one thing though. At the final questions section I entered the host name as 'www' which I believe is ok - it shows that in the installation instructions you sent the link for - but, and here's my mistake I think, for the next question, 'Please enter the domain' I entered the name of my current website (xxxxxxxxxxx.com). That does not work of course as that is already being hosted by a commercial company. The problem is that I now cannot log in to my ISPConfig control panel. I presume that there is a configuration file somewhere where I can edit out my mistake and replace it with something else. Can you point me to where please, and does the 'something else have to be entirely fictitious or one that is registered. I have an unused (not hosted anywhere) .co.uk name that I could use if necessary.

Sorry for being so stupid
