My one big issue with ISPConfig is the setup, that's it. Otherwise it's fantastic, and I'm very grateful good ppl are working on it. Are y'all German, btw?

Anyway, my suggestion would be that if the user has not fullfilled some requirement, for instance if xyz.domain.dom does not resolve to anything, warn the user and allow them to 1. update their DNS, or 2. choose a different hostname before proceeding. Another for instance is if the MySQL pass doesn't match, allow the user a couple of chances to retype it. Finally, if the install MUST abort, have it clean up the install files automagically.

That's all I have to say, other than thanks for putting together such an awesome package. This thing has some great features and potential for future growth. I've suggested it to our sysadmin, as we host DNS, web, email, and ftp, and currently enter EVERYTHING by hand. While it's fun to edit raw zone files, it would be nice to give customers an interface to do it instead.

Thanks again!

The core development team is German, that's right.

I believe postfix-vda covers the quotas, http://web.onda.com.br/nadal/, which is also a debian package. I've been using it for awhile and it works well.

have not found a solution for postfix at all (please correct me if you know one).
I haven't tried this personally but I believe yaa does the trick, and its a debian package as well, http://frost.ath.cx/software/yaa/.

Postfix will also be supported, don't worry about that.

I use this patch myself in this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po..._quota_courier, but I think it might be a bit of a problem for the average user to apply this patch. Of course we'll publish instructions on how to do it, but it will still be a problem for some...

One problem with patches is that we do not only need debian packages. We need at least Fedora 3 + 4, SuSe 9.3 - 10, RedHat 9 plus RH Enterprise packages and as Falko mentioned, many users wont be able to configure a complex patched system and keep it up to date. So we had to chose Exim as default, its easier to setup and compile for the average user.

Default What about Antivirus Spam and Firewall solutions ?

Is there any shift in these programs or the way they will be configured in ISPC3 ? It would be nice people can choose all sorts of solutions them selfs (Free and Commersial) Well i never tryed a different solution myself. But i really like experiment with different tools such as VuurMuur, ASSP, Multiple Antivirus solutions.

Just a thougt

Yes. Most daemons will get their configuration directly out of the mysql database. But we wont stop the ISPConfig 2 development when ISPConfig 3 is released, so noone has to migrate their server to ISPConfig 3.

ISPConfig 3 will be much more modularized then ISPConfig 2. I think it will be possible to plugin additional modules easily.

Yea ISPConfig is great though i think it should be made more user orientated that site orientated. So one client/user should get a number of domains and subdomains, a number of FTP accounts, a number of SQL accounts. So the user should have a limit for the whole account not each site, this way i could give user 100mb of space between 2 sites and one FTP account for all the sites. Something like that, just an idea

Alex,
