22 Install SquirrelMail

To install the SquirrelMail webmail client, run...

yum install squirrelmail

... and restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Then configure SquirrelMail:

/usr/share/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl

We must tell SquirrelMail that we are using Dovecot:

One last thing we need to do is modify the file /etc/squirrelmail/config_local.php and comment out the $default_folder_prefix variable - if you don't do this, you will see the following error message in SquirrelMail after you've logged in: Query: CREATE "Sent" Reason Given: Invalid mailbox name.

vi /etc/squirrelmail/config_local.php

<?php
/**
 * Local config overrides.
 *
 * You can override the config.php settings here.
 * Don't do it unless you know what you're doing.
 * Use standard PHP syntax, see config.php for examples.

 */
//$default_folder_prefix                = '';
?>

Now you can type in http://server1.example.com/webmail or http://192.168.0.100/webmail in your browser to access SquirrelMail.

 

23 Install ISPConfig 3

To install ISPConfig 3 from the latest released version, do this:

cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ispconfig/ISPConfig-3.0.2.1.tar.gz?use_mirror=
tar xvfz ISPConfig-3.0.2.1.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3_install/install/

(Replace ISPConfig-3.0.2.1.tar.gz with the latest version.)

The next step is to run

php -q install.php

This will start the ISPConfig 3 installer:

[root@server1 install]# php -q install.php

The installer automatically configures all underlying services, so no manual configuration is needed.

Afterwards you can access ISPConfig 3 under http://server1.example.com:8080/ or http://192.168.0.100:8080/. Log in with the username admin and the password admin (you should change the default password after your first login):

The system is now ready to be used.

Unbelievable! Level 1 VPS Hostgator users need to follow this. I was at a loss initially and this helped me get started at last!

Thank you again for the time you took to save me from jumping off my balcony.

Hello, and thank you for this great tutorial.

It works perfect, from page 1 to the last. It's really the perfect server :).

I was thinking about a solution, regarding the 25 port, that is blocking by ISP's  i found'it but i don't now how to set up. Maybe you can help me please.

Now, i host different domains on isp server, all o them with email service. The email service works on 25 port. If a client connect with Outlook to chek his emails but his ISP blocks the 25 port, i want him to have an alternative. Also if it connect with a modem, that by default the modem ip, is see like makeing spam, i  want a solution that if he change de smtp port from 25 to another, the emails will not be checked for spam, and the spamhaus message will not be seen by the client.

I think about a solution, maybe you have de programing codes to makeit work, or maybe already exist a topic to resolve this. I din'd found it.

So...let's setup in the email client, for example Outlook, the SMTP port from 25, to lets say, 35000, so that all connections are made on this port.

Now in the server, we setup a port, the same port, 35000, to listen all the traffic that comes. And if finds a email traffic relative to a domain that it hosts, take that email and deliver without cheking for spam. This is a solution for the clients that connect with a modem, 3g or adsl, or for the clients that connects from an ISP that block 25 port.

I use centos 5.5 x86_64 and isp config 3. 

Can you help me wiht this, i must say im novice at this chapter but i learn very fast.

 

Thank you!

very good manual. many thanks all
Submitted by whopsii (not registered) on Fri, 2010-09-17 13:01.

i followed all the step ultra carefully since i am a novice.

it was a hilarious moment when i saw my server working just like the last page shown.

then i use command  " shutdown -r now " to restart my server.

then problem starting to exist. i cant open my server web page and after doing some research, i found this problem

 "  Starting httpd: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/www/clients/client1/web2/web] does not exist
httpd: bad user name web2 "

and something message like "failed" and then i found out that i cant start my httpd.

any clue from the expert around here.

thanks.

Hey whopsii,

 You probably figured this out--but you need to configure apache (httpd) to:

  • Run on boot (use /sbin/service --levels 235 httpd on)
  • Accessible through firewall (type in 'setup' command and go to firewall configuration)

When you restarted your computer, you stopped the service, but since it wasn't configured to come back up--there you go.

 If that doesn't work, it could be something else, but that's where I would start.

update to step 23

If jou are installing ISPconfig on a VM which is running on Hyper-V you might run into problems with the firewall which is used by ISPconfig.

This is the case when you install the Linux Integration components available from Microsoft. The problem is that the synthetic network adapters installed by the integration components do not get an interface name beginning with 'eth'.

-> The Bastille firewall script explicitly calls for 'eth+' interfaces.

You have to edit /etc/Bastille/bastille-firewall.cfg.

-> PUBLIC_IFCES="eth+ ppp+ slip+ venet+"

should be changed into

-> PUBLIC_IFCES="seth+ ppp+ slip+ venet+"

How about doing this?

 ln -s /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf* /etc/

 
 
Submitted by Arno (not registered) on Wed, 2011-02-16 17:40.

same same..

I followed the howto line by line, but bind does not record the domains. they are mentioned in ispconfig, but the zone is empty.

after ln -s or cp of the /etc/named.conf.local to /var/named/chroot/etc/

 then bind see all, but does not start because a lack of ttl.

after removing this file/link all works, but no local domainlookup..and no zones (except rootzone)

help?!

 tnx..

Does this tutorial (The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.5 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3]) work for the 32bit version of CentOS

Submitted by Krissie (not registered) on Fri, 2010-06-25 06:50.
It appears to work - just replace all instances of x86_64 in the various urls and filenames to i386
Submitted by bkraul (not registered) on Tue, 2010-08-03 07:01.

Also make sure that on step 10 - Dovecot, you do not do the following step:

rm -fr /usr/lib/dovecot/
ln -s /usr/lib64/dovecot/ /usr/lib/dovecot

Submitted by MS (not registered) on Tue, 2010-11-09 13:15.

On i386 system step 10 is :
ln -sf /usr/lib/dovecot
