Default Qs About ISPConfig 3

I have been reading on it about what it supports etc...
I was wondering, this is what I have currently in place:
Node1: Apache2, PHP, phpMyadmin, Squirrel Mail (Webmin)
Node2: MySQL Server (Webmin)
Node3: Mail Server (Postfix MTA, Dovecot) (Webmin)
Node4: Samba File Server (Webmin)

All the servers have webmin installed for cluster management

Should ISPConfig 3 be installed on all the Nodes?
Should it only be installed on the Apache node and has features to add the other servers and determine what type of servers they are?

(I had a problem with EHCP, where when I added my MySQL server it kept saying my server was down, but webmin said it was ok.)

ISPConfig can be installed in multi server env. Everything you need can be done.

You need to follow the guides for perfect install on your distribution. You can't have any other controlpanel software installed on the system beacuse ISPConfig3 needs to reconfigure files for it's own functionality.

For installing ISPConfig in multi server install, follow this guide:

There is defiantely no official guide for ispconfig 3 that installs webmin as webmin and ispconfig shall never be installed together. All official tutorials that has been teted and are known to work are linked on ispconfig.org.

The cluster configuration is done by ispconfig. Please read the ispconfig cluster tutorial, it explains all steps incl. the part that enables ispconfig to do the configuration mirroring in the cluster.

Sorry what I meant to say was scheduling cron jobs like virus scan etc...

I am getting this warning off my web server... something about clamav... I am not sure what it means.

It is saying I need updates..but I did them and everything says its up to date...

If you use ispconfig, then you create the cronjobs for all website users in ispconfig.

You have to wait some time as this status gets updated only every few hours as we can not query the software repositorys of the debian project once per minute.

This way I'm not spamming post so I will keep posting my questions here..
I been following:
http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...th-ispconfig-3

And I am about 65% done, I got web, mysql, email working (I think lol)...
But i noticed a step from earlier that installed FTP on the webserver.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
PureFTPd and quota can be installed with the following command:

apt-get -y install pure-ftpd-common pure-ftpd-mysql quota quotatool
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

But I read ahead to see if I was suppose to confure it later or not, but no steps were included for that one... I wonder if the author forgot about it....

The ispconfig installer configures the FTP daemon when ispconfig gets installed.
