I haven't tested this, but I think it should work.

hello falko,

i followed your tutorial to install and configure ispconfig2 in ubuntu server 9.10 and it has been working fine, but there is only console, no desktop by default. i install the ubuntu-desktop and vnc4server onto it in order that the server becomes the desktop, so i can more easily to operate the system, i.e. open multiple terminals, firefox browser etc.

do you think this is achievable? after done so, will the desktop application installed on top of the server have any impact to the performance of the server and the applications already installed in the server?

hi till, i was just successful to copy the VM from one PC to another PC and it works in the new PC, so please ignore my two questions for you today. one question: do you know how to decrease and increase the size of the virtualbox disk image? thanks.

i have below questions:

1) in sunvirtual box, when creating a VM, specifying the dynamically expanding storage virtual disk, e.g. 10G, the VM will have 10G maximum. how can we resize the virtual disk if found it not big enough later, without recreating another VM with larger virtual disk, say 50G? are there any safe ways to do this?

2) can update to ispconfig3 from ispconfig2? how comprehensive and helpful is the ispconfig3 manual for the installation and configuration of ispconfig3 and setup/config websites under it?

i plan to host multiple sites (with domain names like site1.com, site2.com, site3.com etc) in one physical server (through multiple virtual machines under sun virtualbox, each VM for one site) with one ispconfig 2/3 (in this physical server as well) installed in one of the VMs (setup/config all the sites under this ispconfig).

the physical server is behind one public static IP address through a router. each of the VMs has unique IP address (static or dynamic, depends on whether the router is DHCP or static).

the sites are drupal sites, integrating with different applications through drupal modules.

can i achieve this (i.e. host multiple sites under one physical server within one ispconfig 2/3 installed in the same physical server, through only one public static IP address) with this plan? otherwise, how should i modify the plan to best achieve the scheme?

the key things are a) with one ispconfig 2/3 installation; b) through one public static IP address c) in one physical server d) using VMs e) host multiple sites

first of all, you don't need user interface, CLI and webUI, should be enough!

Try this if you are interested in running virtual machines, and want a webUI to control the virtual machine.
