Default installing ISPconfig on an existing virtual server?

I was gifted with my very own VPS a month or so ago, and my benefactor put webadmin on it. It's running Debian.

Heretofore I have used commercial hosting with cpanel or plesk-- I want to switch to something a little bit more user friendly, such as ISPconfig.

It's scary enough learning to manage a server without having to learn something as geeky as webadmin!

Is this possible?

It is possible to install ispconfig on a server that runs webmin, but it will be easier if you install it on a clean server. Most vserver hosters offer free reinstallations, if thats the case at your hoster youshould consider to reinstall the vserver and choose a debian minimal image (if available) as that cleaner then starting with a lamp image.

With a debian minimal as starting point, follow this guide from chapter 5:

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
