Default User Guide ??

Hi, I have followed the install guide for ubuntu 8.10 for ISPConfig 3.0.1.1 and now I need to know how to use it and navigate through it. Is there a users guide or getting started guide anywhere ? I have googled and googled to no avail...

Cheers,
petermac

There are no manuals available for ispconfig 3 beside the installation manuals.

Maybe the lack of documentation hints at the possibility that, although 3 is a rewrite, it's not necessarily a completely different animal altogether in terms of functionality.

Do these other resources really not give you any insight or guidance at all?

not really no... the menu system looks totally different, and are not named the same... so, me being a novice, I don't know what the new names refer back to in the version 2 docs (believe me I looked, and tried to fudge management of 3 with docs from 2... not clear, at least not to me...

The ispconfig 2 mnuals are not for ispconfig 3.

ISPconfig 3 is easier to manage then ispconfig 2, so have you just tried to do what you want in ispconfig 3 instead of first searching for the manual? It is really self explaining. For example to add a new email domain, go to email, click on domain and then on new. Every function is there were it can be expected.

but I am such a novice I don't know what it all means... for example.. I have a status message :

warning:
Your Virus-protection is OUTDATED! [More...]
One or more Components needs a update [More...]


and I don't know how to update the Virus protection, and when I click on [More...] it just gives me a list of text like this and nothing is changed, and I don't see anywhere to make updates to my packages... :
