Hello,

You are going to need to install ISPConfig on the same machine you followed the tutorial for. To download the installer to /tmp all you need to do is cd /tmp and then wget filename . If your download is interrupted you should be able to resume it with the -c option of wget e.g wget -c filename .

Hope that helps,
Spud

Unhappy linux and ISPConfig newbie

when i do wget ISPConfig-2.2.6,instead of dowloading a tar.gz file so i can unpack it, it gives a text/html option. meanwhile the ISP-Server Setup - Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger" manual states in page 6 that you have to download the .tar.gz file to your /tmp directory.

now i know how to go into the /tmp directory.
now how can i download the ISPConfig.tar.gz file and not the text/html

Default Setup ISPConfig 2.2.6

When you are logged in as root, you can give the command:

wget <URL at your nearest download location>

To find out your nearest download location, go to the download section at http://www.ispconfig.org and press "Download" behind the text "Download ISPConfig 2.2.6 from sourceforge.net".

Then, press the link "download" behind your nearest location and you will find out the right URL for your download for using the wget command.


Important:
When you install ISPConfig, choose expert mode.
If you do so, you can choose where you want to store a www directory for storing the websites and so on. For example /var/www.
If you install it in the standard mode, it will use the default settings of your Linux distro.

All the instructions you will need can be found here:
http://www.ispconfig.org/manual_installation.htm

Question tar error

I'm following the ubuntu perfect install. So far, so good. I've downloaded ISPConfig using:

root@server1:~/tmp# wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/i...g-2.2.6.tar.gz

and the response:
--18:41:12-- http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/i...g-2.2.6.tar.gz
=> `ISPConfig-2.2.6.tar.gz'
Resolving prdownloads.sourceforge.net... 66.35.250.217
Connecting to prdownloads.sourceforge.net|66.35.250.217|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [text/html]

[ <=> ] 12,535 50.25K/s

18:41:13 (50.23 KB/s) - `ISPConfig-2.2.6.tar.gz' saved [12535]

And when I tried:

root@server1:~/tmp# tar xvfz ISPConfig*.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

That's the error I received. What did I do wrong and how can I correct it?
Thanks in advance!

You downloaded the ISPConfig downloads HTML page and not the ISPConfig installer. Open the page in a browser and download the ISPConfig package from one of the mirrors that where listed on that page.

Ok, how do I open a browser? All I have is a text interface, not graphical. I'm receiving the same errors... UGH!

In order the download and get the program ready:

1) Move to which ever directory you want to download to

2) Type:
wget http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/s...g-2.2.6.tar.gz

this will download from a North American site (I'm in Canada)

3) Once the file has been downloaded type:
tar -xvzf ISPConfig-2.2.6.tar.gz

this will uncompress the files

4) Move into the directory and install.

Hope this helps.
