21 Install ISPConfig 3

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. The installer will configure all services like Postfix, SASL, Courier, etc. for you. A manual setup as required for ISPConfig 2 (perfect setup guides) is not necessary.

root@server1:/tmp/ispconfig3_install/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.

 

 

22 Additional Notes

22.1 OpenVZ

If the Ubuntu server that you've just set up in this tutorial is an OpenVZ container (virtual machine), you should do this on the host system (I'm assuming that the ID of the OpenVZ container is 101 - replace it with the correct VPSID on your system):

VPSID=101
for CAP in CHOWN DAC_READ_SEARCH SETGID SETUID NET_BIND_SERVICE NET_ADMIN SYS_CHROOT SYS_NICE CHOWN DAC_READ_SEARCH SETGID SETUID NET_BIND_SERVICE NET_ADMIN SYS_CHROOT SYS_NICE
do
  vzctl set $VPSID --capability ${CAP}:on --save
done

I'm a PHP & Java developer, and wanted to get a webserver up to serve as my online resume. I tried and tried on my own to get a server up w/ working email and no problems, and just had no luck. UNIX and email client configurations are not my strong point I fear. Using your guide, I was able to get a working server up in just a few hours ON MY FIRST TRY! Also, I used this guide for 12.4, and confirmed it works. Thank you kind sir for your excellent guide!

I have the exact same problem.  Before I install ISPconfig3, squirrelmail worked fine.  However it stopped working and give me the error unknow user name and password.  Did you ever get yours sorted out?
