    I am considering providing a chat service to one of my clients.

    can we install either Zulip or Rocket.chat on top of ISPConfig?

    ok cool.
    so does that mean that after installing ISPConfig (which i already have hosting email and websites, i could just follow the Zulip tutorial on howtoforge?)

    No, unfortunately not.

    You can:
    a) Install it manually (https://zulip.readthedocs.io/en/stable/production/install-existing-server.html)
    b) Use Docker
    c) Use a dedicated VM for Zulip

    From what I see, zulip needs quite some ressources from your server and is designed for a lot of users. Is that really what your client wants/needs?

    Rocket.chat seems to be easier to integrate in ispconfig: https://www.niih.de/how-to-deploy-rocket-chat-within-a-few-minutes-on-a-ispconfig-server/

    i am not sure if it matters which one i offer the client.
    I dont have a brief as such, however, the client is a paragliding/hang gliding club. it has a committee of about 15 members that currently communicate and collaborate with each other via email.

    I just thought it would be nicer to provide a more organised method of facilitating that collaboration. So Rocket.chat and Zulip were the first 2 i looked at as Zulip is on one of the howtoforge tutorials. When i also looked at a youtube video about Zulip, it seemed to be the better of the 2.

    A rival club uses TinyHQ (I am not sure whether this other club is on the $34/month or $69/month plan)... i wanted to offer something as good as or better than that running on my server.

    My assumption was that ISPConfig would be a good fit because it "sits on top" of a configured system unlike some of the other control panels?
