Adding mailman, fear and loathing with php -q update.php

    Here is the situation. I did not include mailman during install. Now I would like mailman to run on the machine. I sheepishly followed some propably outdated how-to's and ran update.php. To my dismay the "updating services" almost completely ruined my server setup, overwriting some important stuff, like real SSL-Certificates, SSL-settings for the panel, additions to dovecot.conf etc. It took me hours to get back to normal (I'm still not sure I completely arrived there). And: no mailman added to the services.
    Is there a up2date howto for getting mailman installed on a perfect server retroactively WITHOUT needing to update all services?

    Help appreciated a lot!

    Probably you manually altered files that are managed by ispconfig but missed to make your changes update safe by coyping the modified install templates to /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/install/

    The service sneed to be updated regularly to keep your system safe, so its not a issue about installing mailman. When you manipulate files that are managed by ISPConfig and not intended for manual editing, then you have to do that in a update safe way by storing the template files that you edited into the folder that I mentioned above.

    Thank you, I have to accustom myself to templating, then. Found the dovecot one in install/tpl.
    The question remains how to add mailman to services.
