Nice features, especially the multi server support!

Question, is it possible to create a wizard with a few steps:

1. Create customer + contact person
2. Create website + dns
3. Create mail user + alias
4. Create ftp user
5. Create database user

Thumbs up Suggestions

Hello,
I have installed ispconfig 3 beta on Ububtu 8.04 (for virtual users/domains support) and...
I have some suggestions to make:

- when you add some sites, you must restart apache for the settings to have effect - some script needed for this

- the documentation for the install "forgets" there are more packages to install (courier-imap-ssl and courier-pop-ssl comes in my mind now, about 4 extra if I remember, for the clean sistem I used) - needs some attention here

- the documentation does not explain that you need to use mydns already configured, and the install.php is trying to start "sh /etc/init.d/mydns" (hope I remember corectly this) a file which does not exist (for my Ubuntu sistem at least) - needs some clarification here

- This seems to be a very good software which solves all my needs and I hope will work well for me

- Keep up the good work!

ISP CP interface installed, next question on the box that will serve as www server do i have to install the same applications or just apache? Try to install Expert mode but every time that enter the MySQL IP for the data base getting error. Do I have to have MySQL installed on the www box?


Best regards

I know I'm going to be hanged for this but you know what they say...
(***replace with your favorite saying***)

I was thinking if the ISPConfig admin interface could be ported to Joomla...
(No tomatoes or stones please, at least not in the face.)

Some of the reasons behind my outrageous idea are these...

1) Joomla has HUGE coder base. The biggest Open Source Content Management System project in the world.

2) If the admin interface was a Joomla CMS based - ISPConfig coders could delegate that part of the "update/upgrade/security work" to Joomla coders.

3) Joomla has an outstanding modular "plugin" system that allows the easy installation of "Components, modules, etc." This would allow easy ISPConfig plugins (like languages, webmail systems, etc.)

4) Joomla comes with optional "authentication systems" that include at this moment - Joomlas own MySQL based auth, (and connectors for...) LDAP, Gmail, and the coming attraction OpenID.

5) Joomla comes with a really good ready made installation package.
(This will help ISPConfig coders to no end. Delegate, delegate, delegate.)

5) At some point in the distant future there will come a need to integrate ISPConfig with a CRM system like vTiger (All hail vTiger, its not crap anymore, except the pdf invoices... but that is another story) and vTiger with shopping cart system like Virtuemart (one of thousands of Joomla components.) If ISPConfig was a "Component" of Joomla this would be so easy.


Ok. You can start laughing now.

agreed.

As you might know, I'am doing systema dministration for al lot of clients. Most servers that I recovered from a hack in the last time had been hacked trough a jommla system. Personally I really do not want to rely on this security wise for administering my server.

ISPConfig has a modular plugin system and event system too, so no need for that.

This might be a point, at least ldap authentication. But you forget that the joomla auth sytsmes just cover 5 or 10% of the need of ispconfig as it is made for a completely different type of software. Joomly is just a CMS and ISPConfig 3 is a multi server control panel.

5) Joomla comes with a really good ready made installation package.
(This will help ISPConfig coders to no end. Delegate, delegate, delegate.)
This installer does not really help us. It is webbased, but ISPConfig needs a shell based installer that runs as root and does system configuration tasks.

If ISPConfig was a "Component" of Joomla this would be so easy.
There should be no problem to write addons that integrate e.g. the client management with a crm system in ISPConfig 3.

To sum it up, I do not see any benefits in such a merge. ISPConfig and joomla are two absolutely different software projects, it would be the same as if you want to merge the apache webserver with your homebanking application.

Yup. Not gonna be easy and your right about the "security" aspect. PHP is leaking like a sieve. But there is the CRM aspect of this, granted that nether the CRM or CMS is not "critical" for this type of system.

I do hope, that ISPConfig will not be ported to Joomla or any similar "CRM" things, most likely with the same arguments till mentioned.
(Maybe something like the remoting framework would be interestng, so others could develop a joomla based panel, that uses the remoting framework as core).

More than this it'd be a fine idea to have the panel coded with Zend Framework, so in the end build as MVC-App.

The ISPConfig 3 design follows in general the MVC pattern and also event based. I reviewed all frameworks and none of the frameworks that were available at the time the development of ISPConfig 3 started matched all criterias for this project.
