Question CentOS 5.1 Server Setup: LAMP, Email, DNS, FTP, ISPConfig (a.k.a. The Perfect Server)

Hi,

Ive following the guide and eventually figured out how to download ISPconfig using Wget, running the installation of ispconfig and it's failed, but I think I know why

I don't recall seeing anywhere in the guide about changeing/specifying repositories and im assuming it's using the default which is the DVD?

I noticed that when trying to install several things, like PHP, it comes back with nothing to do

Also in the guide when it comes to the encryption keys for the web part, the way i read the guide last night is that you can just enter nothing and continue, but it seems to be mandatory information of which i didnt really have anything to enter..

At the moment my server is accessible via the internet and im trying to install this via Putty.

Any suggestions/help?

Thanks

Andy

You don't have to set up any repositories - just try to follow the guide.

This means that the packages are already installed.

Hi Falko,

In the section "Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS"

you get to the section about creating certificates

mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024

chmod 600 smtpd.key
openssl req -new -key smtpd.key -out smtpd.csr

openssl x509 -req -days 3650 -in smtpd.csr -signkey smtpd.key -out smtpd.crt

openssl rsa -in smtpd.key -out smtpd.key.unencrypted

mv -f smtpd.key.unencrypted smtpd.key
openssl req -new -x509 -extensions v3_ca -keyout cakey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 3650

I entered all of that in Putty and it ran it, but then it asked for the usual create a certificate details (used to this from 2003 server)

Im wondering as i tried to fill it in, the ISPconfig failed?

update, this is as far as it gets, if I don't enter anything but just a dot . then it fails

If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.

Please accept the default values, i.e., just press ENTER instead of a dot.
