Default Newb: What will 'work' with ISPc3?

Hi,

I quite often see posts like " Will application X work Ok with ISPc3?"
or "Will X conflict with my ISPc3 installation?"

What is the rule of thumb here?

Is it basically to avoid installs which mess with Postfix/Courier/Apache/php config files? How do I know if they do?

Avoid anything which installs another mail server, such as Zimbra?

Would be good to know

I'd love some comments here as well if you have a minute...

Thanks!

Slowhand

Everything will work as long as it does not try to configure services that are configured by ispconfig.

Till,

So as long as the new installation doesn't configure anything to do with
Postfix
Courier
Bastille
Apache
PHP
ClamAV
Spamassassin
?
I can safely go for it?

I can tell from the application's documentation if it will try to configure the above?

Can something like Zimbra co-exist on my server as it seems to have its own mail system? I guess I would have to use different ports...?

Zimbra is an email management system that configures postfix and so it conflicts with ISPConfig.

I thought it was a self-contained system... Good to know I need to stay clear of it.

End even if it was. You can never install two services for the same thing on the same server. so you can not install two different email servers on the same server as only one service can listen on port 25 at the same time.
