    I've tried running install on Amazon Linux and I get...

    "Unrecognized GNU/Linux distribution" error.

    Does ISPConfig support Amazon Linux?

    ISPConfig supports Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuSE and CentOS. You should find images on amazon for these distributions as well.

    Thanks. I'll give Ubuntu a try.

    Just that the complete management stack is geared for Amazon Linux ( which from what I've seen is binary compatible with CentOS / Redhat ).

    The installer of ISPConfig checks for certain distributions in the installer. You can override this by throwing a fake input into the installer files to make it think that you have CentOS installed. It should not be that hard.

    The function get_distname() in install/lib/install.lib.php should give you the idea. I think all you need is an empty /etc/redhat-release file, so you can try
    touch /etc/redhat-release

    I wasn't sure if doing so would break something else later down the line.

    I decided to use ubuntu moving forward, but Amazon Linux would've been my first chance if ISPConfig supported it.
