25 Install ISPConfig 3

Before you start the ISPConfig installation, make sure that Apache is stopped (if it is installed - it is possible that some of your installed packages have installed Apache as a dependency without you knowing). If Apache2 is already installed on the system, stop it now...

/etc/init.d/httpd stop

... and remove Apache's system startup links:

chkconfig --del httpd

Make sure that nginx is running:

/etc/init.d/nginx restart

(If you have both Apache and nginx installed, the installer asks you which one you want to use: Apache and nginx detected. Select server to use for ISPConfig: (apache,nginx) [apache]:

Type nginx. If only Apache or nginx are installed, this is automatically detected by the installer, and no question is asked.)

Download the current ISPConfig 3 version and install it. The ISPConfig installer will configure all services like Postfix, Dovecot, etc. for you. A manual setup as required for ISPConfig 2 is not necessary anymore.

You now also have the possibility to let the installer create an SSL vhost for the ISPConfig control panel, so that ISPConfig can be accessed using https:// instead of http://. To achieve this, just press ENTER when you see this question: Do you want a secure (SSL) connection to the ISPConfig web interface (y,n) [y]:.

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

cd /tmp
wget http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
tar xfz ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3_install/install/

The next step is to run

php -q install.php

This will start the ISPConfig 3 installer:

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

To fix the Mailman errors you might get during the ISPConfig installation, open /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py...

vi /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py

... and set DEFAULT_SERVER_LANGUAGE = 'en':

[...]
#-------------------------------------------------------------
# The default language for this server.
DEFAULT_SERVER_LANGUAGE = 'en'
[...]

Restart Mailman:

/etc/init.d/mailman restart

Afterwards you can access ISPConfig 3 under http(s)://server1.example.com:8080/ or http(s)://192.168.0.100:8080/ (http or https depends on what you chose during installation). 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.

If you want to use IPv6 addresses with your nginx vhosts, please do the following before you create IPv6 vhosts in ISPConfig:

Open /etc/sysctl.conf...

vi /etc/sysctl.conf

... and add the line net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1:

[...]
net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1

Run...

sysctl -p

... afterwards for the change to take effect.
