chkconfig --add apache2

ISPConfig configures the perl and PHP mimetypes on a per vhost basis, so we comment them out in the global setup.
Edit /etc/mime.types. Comment out the following 2 lines:

# application/x-httpd-php                phtml pht php
# application/x-perl pl pm

Edit /etc/apache2/httpd.conf and change

DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var

to

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.cgi index.php index.php5 index.php4 index.php3 index.pl index.html.var index.aspx default.aspx

Edit /etc/sysconfig/apache2 and add rewrite to the APACHE_MODULES line:

APACHE_MODULES="access actions alias auth [...] setenvif ssl suexec userdir php4 php5 rewrite"

Also add SSL to the APACHE_SERVER_FLAGS line:

APACHE_SERVER_FLAGS="SSL"

Then run

SuSEconfig
/etc/init.d/apache2 start

Proftpd

I want to use Proftpd instead of vsftpd which is SUSE's default FTP server because the control panel software I am going to install on this server (ISPConfig) requires Proftpd on SUSE 10.0 (on other distributions this is different). Since there are no SUSE packages for Proftpd I have to compile it manually:

cd /tmp/
wget --passive-ftp ftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/source/proftpd-1.2.10.tar.gz

tar xvfz proftpd-1.2.10.tar.gz
cd proftpd-1.2.10/
./configure --sysconfdir=/etc
make
make install

cd ../
rm -fr proftpd-1.2.10*

Now create the file /etc/init.d/proftpd:

chmod 755 /etc/init.d/proftpd
chkconfig --add proftpd

/etc/init.d/proftpd start

For security reasons you can add the following lines to /etc/proftpd.conf:

DefaultRoot ~
IdentLookups off
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."

Be sure to comment out the following lines in order to allow ftp users to CHMOD:

# Bar use of SITE CHMOD by default
# <Limit SITE_CHMOD>
# DenyAll
# </Limit>

and restart Proftpd:

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

Webalizer

To install webalizer, just run

yast2 -i webalizer

Synchronize the System Clock

If you want to have the system clock synchronized with an NTP server do the following:

yast2 -i xntp

Add an NTP server

yast2

Select Network Services -> NTP Client:

Then select Automatically Start NTP Daemon During Boot and enter the address of the NTP server. I used public the Server with the IP address 192.43.244.18. Then select Finish, Quit.

Install some Perl Modules needed by SpamAssassin (comes with ISPConfig)

yast2 -i perl-HTML-Parser perl-Net-DNS perl-Digest-SHA1


On To The Next Step...

The configuration of the server is now finished, and we go on by installing ISPConfig on it.
