This tutorial shows how to prepare a Fedora 10 server for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache web server, Postfix mail server, MySQL, MyDNS nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more.

Please note that this setup does not work for ISPConfig 2! It is valid for ISPConfig 3 only!

I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

 

1 Requirements

To install such a system you will need the following:

 

2 Preliminary Note

In this tutorial I use the hostname server1.example.com with the IP address 192.168.0.100 and the gateway 192.168.0.1. These settings might differ for you, so you have to replace them where appropriate.

 

3 Install The Base System

Boot from your Fedora 10 DVD. Select Install or upgrade an existing system:

It can take a long time to test the installation media so we skip this test here:

The welcome screen of the Fedora installer appears. Click on Next:

Choose your language next:

Select your keyboard layout:

I'm installing Fedora 10 on a fresh system, so I answer Yes to the question Would you like to initialize this drive, erasing ALL DATA?:

Fill in the hostname of the server:

Choose your time zone:

Give root a password:

Next we do the partitioning. Select Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout. This will give you a small /boot partition and a large / partition which is fine for our purposes:

Select Write changes to disk:

The hard drive is being formatted:

Make shure alle softwareupdates and fixes are done before installing ISPConfig 3 at the end.

I've had some trouble with the fc10 recommended Postfix update (2.2.5.6-1). After the update the config for Postfix is wrong.

Also, MyDNS is available in a more recent version (1.2.8.25) where the .conf setup is slightly different (but file is at the same location)
