Thumbs up

I also followed the "Perfect Server Debian Lenny with ISP Config 3" and have a functioning web server.....but I cannot figure out how to get the mail setup and functioning.

I have looked across multiple forums and have requests in to other Linux forums as well.

I really prefer howtoforge's work though, it always seems more in detail then some other sites I frequent.

Even a simple HOWTO on the email setup would be a HUGE, HUGE help to me. Wordpress etc... is nice too, but I think the bulk of this community want to see the email side of this server follow through!

-Love the site, love your work!

Default How to install WordPress.............

Hi I havent tried this my self, but most other web applications (such as whmcs etc) have words just fine, so i dont see why wordpress wont..

Create a new account in ispc3, that user needs access to ssh ftp and be able to create a database..

Then

1. Download and unzip the WordPress package.

2. Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.

3. Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.

4. Open wp-config.php in your favorite text editor and fill in your database details as explained in Editing wp-config.php to generate and use your secret key password.

5. Then via ftp, place the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server: (either /public_html or /public_html/blog etc)

So if you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server. (public_html directory)

If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), rename the directory wordpress to the name you'd like the subdirectory to have and move or upload it to your web server.
i.e. So if your site is www/yourdomain.com/blog, rename the directory called "wordpress" to "blog" and upload it to the root directory of your web server. (so it would be public_html/blog/wordpress-files)

6. Run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in your favorite web browser.

* If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php

* If you installed WordPress in its own subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php

hope this helps....

Default ISPConfig 3 - First Steps Guide

April 2009 - August 2010 and we are still without the documentation that many of us would love to see.

Is there anyone out there with both the technical knowledge and writing skills who would be so kind as to create a User Manual for ISPConfig 3 ?

Thanks in anticipation that 2010 AD will be the year !

The ISPConfig 3 manual is finally available (in PDF format)!

On nearly 300 pages, it covers the concept behind ISPConfig (admin, resellers, clients), explains how to install and update ISPConfig 3, includes a reference for all forms and form fields in ISPConfig together with examples of valid inputs, and provides tutorials for the most common tasks in ISPConfig 3. It also lines out how to make your server more secure and comes with a troubleshooting section at the end.

Version 1.0 for ISPConfig 3.0.3 (Date: 09/30/2010)
Author: Falko Timme <ft@falkotimme.com>
299 pages

The manual can be downloaded from these two links:

http://www.ispconfig.org/ispconfig-3...nfig-3-manual/
http://www.howtoforge.com/download-t...onfig-3-manual

Now the bad news: we can’t offer it for free. But it will be available for as low as 5 EUR per copy – we think this price is more than fair for a manual with nearly 300 pages.


Why Do We Charge For The ISPConfig 3 Manual?

We hope that this will allow us to employ an additional full-time ISPConfig developer who can disburden the core team. This would accelerate ISPConfig development a lot and also allow us to provide more support for ISPConfig users.
