    I will be getting a new server next week...

    Are there any known issues running ISPConfig / Perfect Setup CentOS 5 in 64bit vs 32bit?

    I've been running a test server with a 32bit setup and have had no problems. I can't test the 64bit setup since my test server doesn't have a 64bit capable cpu.

    I've been using ISP config on a CentOS 5 64 bit system since August with no problems at all.

    Notes from CentOS 5 64bit Perfect Setup install

    Ok, I just finished my Perfect Setup 64bit install on CentOS 5. Most everything is the same as the 32bit HowTo but, I had a few minor things I wanted to highlight while this is fresh in my memory:

    Step 10 MySQL (5.0)

    When you do this:
    yum install mysql mysql-devel mysql-server
    It installs the 32bit AND 64bit mysql and mysql-devel packages.
    That could be a problem so I removed mysql.i386 and mysql-devel.i386. Now I only have the 64bit packages installed as shown below:
    Installed Packages
    mysql.x86_64                             5.0.22-         installed       
    mysql-devel.x86_64                       5.0.22-         installed       
    mysql-server.x86_64                      5.0.22-         installed
    Available Packages
    mysql.i386                               5.0.22-         updates         
    mysql-devel.i386                         5.0.22-         updates
    Step 11 Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS

    When you telnet into localhost 25 and do "ehlo localhost" the HowTo says to look for
    ...but what you actually get is
    Step 13 ProFTPd

    ProFTPd is compiled from source in the HowTo.
    Many of us prefer to use yum so we can get updates easier.
    The rpmforge repository has ProFTPd available via yum if you add their repository. More info here:

    Then all you have to do is:
    yum install proftpd
    will give you:
    proftpd.x86_64                           1.3.1-1.el5.rf         rpmforge
    It installs as /usr/sbin/proftpd by default so no symlink is needed.

    ...now it's on to my ISPConfig install :D
