Default Problem installing ISPconfig on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

Hi There,

I'm trying to install ISPConfig 2.2.17 stable on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.

I followed the exact instructions from: www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06

when I run setup from this dir
$:/root/dowloads/install_ispconfig/

./setup

I get a lot of questions:

ISPConfig found the following MTA:
postfix
Is this correct? [y/n]: y

Virtusertable-File: /etc/postfix/virtusertable
Is this correct? [y/n]:y

there is no file named /etc/postfix/virtusertable so I made it with;

$touch /etc/postfix/virtusertable

same here:
Local-Host-Names-File: /etc/postfix/local-host-names
Is this correct? [y/n]y

the file /etc/postfix/local-host-names
does not exist so i made it with:

$touch /etc/postfix/local-host-names

but in the end I always get:

########## FTP SERVER ##########

Checking if an FTP server is installed...
ERROR: Your system configuration is not compatible with ISPConfig! The installation routine stops here!
I thought maybe the upgrade which I ran:

$apt-get update
$apt-get upgrade

might have screwed things up, but I'm not sure.

also I noticed that the program was looking for /etc/proftpd.conf
but proftpd.conf is in /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf so I made a softlink like this:

$ln -s /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf /etc/proftpd.conf



should I make changes to the dist.txt file? If so what changes?

Anybody with the same problem? or any ideas how to fix this???

Help would be much appreciated ;-)

gr,

E.

You where asked by the installer for the number of days that the cert should be valid and you entered a dot instaed of a number, so the installer stopped.

3650 is ok, but you should press enter for all other questions to make sure you don't enter anything invalid.
