But amavisd-new plays a central role in the setup, and I don't want to compile everything from the sources. I think the missing packages will be available in a few days or weeks (for example, for RedHat 6.0 there's an amavisd-new package), so I will wait and write the tutorial then.
i wasn't aware that 'amavisd-new" ever has been in CentOS (Base-) repos? At least it's not on our mirror, and our "default-source" for 5.6 is/was rpmforge. And for CentOS6, it's now on epel:
amavisd-new.noarch 2.6.4-2.el6 epel

squirrelmail also is on epel.

in case you don't want to wait: i only had to add

Code:
%{python_sitelib}/getmail-4.20.3-py2.6.egg-info
in getmail.spec - and a simple

Code:
rpmbuild -tb getmail-4.20.3.tar.gz
did the job; rpm seems to be fine for me...

Thanks for all your work first up...

But I am very keen on setting up a CentOS 6 x86_64 system running ISPConfig v3... I have purchased the book and want to install it ASAP (doesn't everyone)

When would this guide be coming out?

Cheers

Steve

The CentOS Developers have not released all packages required by ISPConfig yet. Without that packages, ISPConfig can not work and we can not write a guide for it.

I highly recommend to use Debian instead. ISPConfig on Centos is known to be unstable as Centos has often package conflicts with the extrernal Centos repositories which will cause the setup to fail on Centos upgrdaes. So if your system should be used as production system, then use debian

I have had next to zero issues with ISPConfig on Centos.

Minor issue with Subversion having to be excluded from yum updates and a need to back up the postfix configuration files before update and restore them after.

All and all an excellent product on CentOS and I'm hoping to assist with moving it to CentOS 6.

Debian is a good platform but I have found CentOS to be a more stable LAMP environment.

Still concerned about squirrelmail being dropped, though there is an alternative posted earlier in this thead. Wondering how the mail migration will go. My 10 year old daughter wants a squirrelmail account on my server because she likes the logo!

http://www.roundcube.net/?p=screens

Roundcube looks more capable than squirrelmail, which as I've said lacks modern filters available in gmail and yahoo.

Google lets you host your mail with them, just change the mx records and allow a 1 line text ad. That sort of guts ISPCONFIG functionality though.

I recommend it be evaluated as an alternative to squirrelmail in the ISPCONFIG space.

Of course a procedure would need to be written to migrate the users mail from squirrelmail to roundcube "containers" <runs and hides>

I've managed to set up a CentOS 6.0 server with ISPConfig 3 (thanks to the EPEL repository). Will publish the guide later today.

I'm very tempted to change over and if I can't fix this debian based one I just might.

Could you help me on my debian issue please?
