Default ISPconfig 3 or 2?

Hi all,
it is quite generic question. I am using ISPconfig 2 for quite long time. I am happy with it. I know it and it covers my needs.

I have a new installation coming up and I was thinking to go for ISPconfig 3 (actually it is a consolidation of two servers to one).
Should I go?
For how long you will support version 2?
I know version 3 it is quite stable and I like the changes...
What is your opinion?



Thanks!

The Support and develompnent of ISP2 is not stoped or finished in next time.

ISP3 is a new System for Multiple Server Hosting and virtual user.

I always have a hard time with that statement. If ISPconfig 3 is new, why is it version 3... that happens when version 2 moves to the next iteration, does it move to version 4?

If the roadmap has changed, then fine. ISPconf3 is a good product and can stand on its own as a separate product ( I voted for it ) It is clearly taking a different path ( i.e no resellers etc.)

Documentation is a large problem at this point and if you do not have the chops to hunt down issues I would suggest sticking with version 2 for a while longer.

We have room for hundreds or thousands of versions behind 2.x.x

ISPConfig 3 has resellers. A client which has its own (sub) clients is a reseller.

Quite funny. And why there are hundreds of answers then here in the forums for questions about how to use and install ispconfig 3.

If ISPConfig 2 covers your needs then there is no reason to update. ISPConfig 3 is made for multiserver setups.

if you want to use the advanced email features of ispconfig 3, then yes. If the system user setup of ispconfig 2 fullfills all your needs, stay with ispconfig 2.

I know, I posted that out of frustration because I don't get answers on my questions, which are probably too simple...
But still no answer :-(

This is a free software forum and not a paid support. So it may take some time that you get an answer. If you want to get paid support, then take a look at the ispconfig support page and dont complain here were poeple are answering your questions in their free time!
