Default ISPconfig 3 or 2?

Hi all,
it is quite generic question. I am using ISPconfig 2 for quite long time. I am happy with it. I know it and it covers my needs.

I have a new installation coming up and I was thinking to go for ISPconfig 3 (actually it is a consolidation of two servers to one).
Should I go?
For how long you will support version 2?
I know version 3 it is quite stable and I like the changes...
What is your opinion?



Thanks!

I always have a hard time with that statement. If ISPconfig 3 is new, why is it version 3... that happens when version 2 moves to the next iteration, does it move to version 4?

If the roadmap has changed, then fine. ISPconf3 is a good product and can stand on its own as a separate product ( I voted for it ) It is clearly taking a different path ( i.e no resellers etc.)

Documentation is a large problem at this point and if you do not have the chops to hunt down issues I would suggest sticking with version 2 for a while longer.

We have room for hundreds or thousands of versions behind 2.x.x

ISPConfig 3 has resellers. A client which has its own (sub) clients is a reseller.

Quite funny. And why there are hundreds of answers then here in the forums for questions about how to use and install ispconfig 3.

Till and I are only humans, and our days only have 24 hours. We're writing ISPConfig for free, we've answered thousands of questions for free in this forum, and we've written hundreds of tutorials for free. And we still got a life. I guess there are not that many people who have contributed that big to the open-source community. I'm sometimes missing some gratitude in this forum which is quite frustrating. Lots of people like to take, but only few try to give something back.

Thanks to you an Till for doing that great tool.
Again, I wrote that out of frustration, sorry.

If you look here http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35169
you'll see that I am trying to give something back, but there are 40 views and no reply.

I'll put something together at the end - probably I'll do it alone, as it seems - summarizing my steps to setup ISPConfig until having sites up and running.

You probably know that, but not having some basic docs explaining noobs what to do, damages your project.
Since I can't program well enough (for example for getting a cron interface up), I'll help with a how-to.

and honestly, I also cannot understand why only you and Till seem to give useful answers on this forum, with a few exceptions.

ISPConfig is such a great tool, it makes me sick to see so many threads collecting viewcount over viewcount but remaining without reply from other forum members.

What are all the ppl doing?
Aren't they using the tool too and know the answers?

Falko and Till feedbacks/comments are the only reason I like ISPconfig so much. I used it (ispconfig2-before and ispconfig 3-now) till this day for my websites and hosting needs. Anyways, there are so much information on this forum that you are bound to find a solution or a guide to the right direction on finding it.

I was using ISPconfig 2 for over a year and really liked it, but was lacking on things I really need. It's still a great system and I feel it leaned more toward domain hosters and resellers. I didn't have any use for that since I was the only admin for all my domains.

When ISPconfig 3 came along, I switched in a heartbeat. It had virtual email user capabilities (my favorite feature), replication, more database driven and less of the reseller stuff (forms). Monitoring emails and system from the UI is great! I use Fedora 10 myself and the guide by Falko was on the dot.
