Default Need a Server to run ISPCONFIG on ! Look Here...

Folks,

You don't need to buy an expensive server or 2nd computer to run ispconfig and try it! Not sure if you are aware, but vmware have made their SERVER version FREE now!

What this enables you to do - is to run ispconfig on your existing windows machine as a virtual server!

It's fantastic for testing or even a permanent server...

Anyway - it's what I use and thought I'd let you know about it..
http://www.vmware.com

PS: There is even a section on the website where you can download pre-built appliances and someone has built an ispconfig appliance for you. So basically all you do is download the files and fire it up with vmware and you have an ispconfig server ready to configure and run!

Enjoy - cheers...

This is how I've been testing OS'ese for some time now!
I'm not using "VMware", but "Parallels Workstation" (not free).

VMWare is really nice for testing, we use it to write the howtos.

The appliance has been build by Falko and me, the highlights are that it has SuPHP and ChrootSSH enabled, these features are part of the next official ISPConfig release.

Will the "problem" with aliases that's causing the user@www.domain.dom headaches in RoundCube be solved in the new release?

No. The aliases where written correctly in ISPConfig. I think we will not change ISPConfig just to work around the roundcube bug in reading the config file.
