Default ISPConfig 3.0.0.5 Beta Released

The second Beta version of ISPconfig 3 is available for download. This release is
for testing only, it is not for production use.

ISPConfig 3 is a new Hosting Control Panel written from scratch. ISPConfig 3
is not a direct update for ISPConfig 2. DO not install it on a ISPConfig 2 server.


Features of ISPConfig 3 compared to ISPConfig 2
-----------------------------------------------------

- Support for virtual mail users
- Support for virtual FTP Users
- Support for multiple Servers
- Support for splitting of services to multiple servers
(Database, web, FTP and DNS can be on different servers).


Download
-----------------------------------------------------

The software itself can be downloaded here:

http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/I....5-beta.tar.gz

ISPConfig 3.0.0.5 Beta is also available as ready to run VMWare virtual
machine based on Debian Linux.

Download of the VMWare image:

http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/I...ebian_etch.zip (approx. 600 MB)

When you run the vmware image the first time you will be asked to keep
or create a MAC address. Select "keep", otherwise the networking wont work.

The root password of the VM is set to "ispconfig", the IP address is
192.168.0.105 and has to be reconfigured in /etc/network/interfaces
to meet your network requirements. The ISPconfig Interface login is:

http://192.168.0.105:8080/

User = admin
Password = admin.


Changes:
--------------------------------------


- Added graphical icons for active / inactive rows in lists and a graphical delete button.
- Added mailbox statistics in the interface.
- Made headers clickable in the menu on the left side.
- Added a function to let new servers join existing ispconfig 3 installations in expert installation mode.
- Added support for php fcgi.
- Added support for jailkit.

- Many bugs were fixed, see bugtracker:

http://bugtracker.ispconfig.org/inde...roject=3&due=8


And many bugs have been fixed.

BUG Reporting
--------------------------------------

This is a Beta release and we invite everone to report bugs. Bugs can be either reported
in the ispconfig forum (preferaböe to this forum thread) or you sign up for a account
in the ISPConfig bugtracking system and sent a email to dev[at]ispconfig[dot]org with your

we had to dectivate the automatic activation of bugtracker accounts.


Supported Linux Distributions
-----------------------------
- Debian Etch (4.0).
- Ubuntu 7.10

More Linux Distributions will be supported soon.


Installation
--------------------

The installation instructions for ISPConfig on Debian and Ubuntu can be found

I cannot create DNS records with empty or @ name like NS or similar. Is that normal and I'm missing something or not?

btw "Cancel" button on "add record" page returns you to list of zones, not list of records

"delete zone" button does not delete its records, is that normal behaviour?

Hey Till,
I was looking but can not find what packages are needed for other servers "services" so that they can be controlled via isp3 control panel. like additional http, dns, and mail servers. Maybe I just missed something but could you enlighten me please.

When you install ispconfig 3 on a new server that shall be part of a existing ispconfig 3 installation, select expert installation mode, enter the database details of the remote ispconfig 3 installation that you want to join and select that you do not want to install a controlpanel frontend on the local server.

Ok Thanks Till,
I guess I can just install the pakages needed for say a http server and then install the ispconfig 3 in expert mode or do I have to install all packages mail,dns,http, ect on each server even though each server will have specific roles?

On each server, you will have to install the php packages (except the mod_php package, which is only needed if apache is installed too), as ISPConfig requires them for local processing. Then install only the services that you want on the server. The server can be divided in the following parts:

1) Mailserver: Install the postfix, amavisd and clamav packages.
2) DNS Server: Install mydns
3) Webserver: Install apache, vlogger and pureftpd packages
4) DB server: Not really useful yet, as the current beta lacks support for user databases.
