22 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, Dovecot, 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.

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]:.

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.

 

 

23 Additional Notes

23.1 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

Same problem here! Any solutions?

Did you ever find a solution to the "No PHP MySQL functions available" problem? I can't get past this part. I did the PHP CGI method as the FPM one didn't work for me (there were missing folders).

Thank you.

Hi!

Thanks for tutorial!

Could you please improve it with instructions about how to install and configure DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail)?

Server works great, but there is problem with Google servers, because they requests SPF and DKIM...

 Thanks in advance!

Great Guide !

But i have few questions . Why when i login using ftp or webdav it shows me huge tree of folders that are locked for access. Is there a way to hide them and leave only folders that works with service that user is using at moment ? I think that should be written somwhere inside of pureftpd and ssh configs
