Default multiserver setup

I am writing out a multiserver setup with ispconfig3 and I am trying to grasp the concept. I plan to use the recommended Debian Linux distro.

My goal is:

1. master ISPconfig
2. mysql database server
3. mailserver
4. one or more webservers

By digging through tons of forumposts and documentation I managed to find out for the slave setups I need to connect the database to the master. The Howtoforge OEL 5.4 setup answered more or less the greatest mystery I couldn't find this anywere else: on the database server, the mailserver and the webserver I only need to perform a limited install as compared to the Howtoforge Perfect Server Setup for Debian 5.0.

So in this installation tutorial one finds a total of 18 steps to perform, the first 3 considdering the installation of Debian Lenny. Step 18 I need to perform on all servers, for the master in standard mode, for the others in EXPERT mode. So far so understood.

But step 4 to 17 in my belief now only need to be performed on certain servers I plan to setup. Has anybody managed to install working nodes more or less like this setup and which of the following installs did he put on which node (mail, database, webserver, ispconfig master) ? Although some, like the setting the clock, very obvious need to be performed on all of them, also others are not so clear. Anybody? I typed out the steps so you can easily copy and write after them on which node they need to be installed.

4. SSH
5. Vim-Nox
6. Configure the network
7. Update Debian
8. Synchronize the clock
9. Install Postfix, Courier, Saslauthd, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, rkhunter, binutils
10. Install Amavisd-new, SpamAssassin, And Clamav
11. Install Apache2, PHP5, phpMyAdmin, FCGI, suExec, Pear, And mcrypt
12 Install PureFTPd And Quota
13 Install MyDNS
14 Install Vlogger And Webalizer
15 Install Jailkit
16 Install fail2ban
17 Install SquirrelMail

Also this question keeps me busy. Does every webserver need a public IP or is this managed and routed by ISP3?

Every server that shall be accessible from the internet needs one or more public IP addresses.

But if the masterserver in this setup which holds ISPconfig is accessible by a unique public IP, does it route traffic for every site to the corresponding webserver (which in my question does not have a public IP) in the local net or does every slave webserver also need a unique PUBLIC ip?

Could you please advise me on my other question to set up the slaves?

Answered in post 2: yes, you need a public ip address for every server, slave or master. Think of it like this, ispconfig3 cannot tell the world your mail server ip if it's an internal one.

Unless you're comfortable with the install process, you could install as per the guide and then switch off the services you don't want from the control panel.

Default so the multiserver trick with 1 ip is....

@Toucan: tnxs very much sir for you clear answer!


So in IPSconfig 3 the trick for multiserver with 1 ip is the next I guess?

Soon I will get a cable connection with 5 ip's at my home. I will move 47 domains from Strato dedicated server to here.

Planned setup
: I connect the first public IP to a node with a Smoothwall installation followed by a router. The router is connected to the master and the slaves and the portforwarding in Smoothwall for Ispconfig, mail, mysql, dns and web is set to the local ip of the corresponding master/slave node. This should have the system work on ONE ip?

If this works could there also be a way to have more then one webserver under this type of installation with one IP? Since I only can forward port 80 once. In other words can Apache serve namebased hosts on different nodes in the local net. Anybody done that before?

Not as much with the install process. This truly magnificant system is rather undocumented for mulltiserver setup. E.G. quota handling in multiserver setup unfortunately can only be described as black hole. First security will be taken care off by Smoothwall but I guess individual nodes will need individual measures for security like portsentry?

This wil bring a lot of redundant processing I am guessing?

You need a dedicated IP for every server that shall be accessible from the internet. It does not matter if you use ispconfig or not.
