    Hi,

    Ive following the guide and eventually figured out how to download ISPconfig using Wget, running the installation of ispconfig and it's failed, but I think I know why

    I don't recall seeing anywhere in the guide about changeing/specifying repositories and im assuming it's using the default which is the DVD?

    I noticed that when trying to install several things, like PHP, it comes back with nothing to do

    Also in the guide when it comes to the encryption keys for the web part, the way i read the guide last night is that you can just enter nothing and continue, but it seems to be mandatory information of which i didnt really have anything to enter..

    At the moment my server is accessible via the internet and im trying to install this via Putty.

    Any suggestions/help?

    Thanks

    Andy

    You don't have to set up any repositories - just try to follow the guide. :)

    This means that the packages are already installed.

    What encryption keys?

    Hi Falko,

    In the section "Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS"

    you get to the section about creating certificates

    mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
    cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
    openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024

    chmod 600 smtpd.key
    openssl req -new -key smtpd.key -out smtpd.csr

    openssl x509 -req -days 3650 -in smtpd.csr -signkey smtpd.key -out smtpd.crt

    openssl rsa -in smtpd.key -out smtpd.key.unencrypted

    mv -f smtpd.key.unencrypted smtpd.key
    openssl req -new -x509 -extensions v3_ca -keyout cakey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 3650

    I entered all of that in Putty and it ran it, but then it asked for the usual create a certificate details (used to this from 2003 server)

    Im wondering as i tried to fill it in, the ISPconfig failed?

    update, this is as far as it gets, if I don't enter anything but just a dot . then it fails

    STEP 1: Generating RSA private key for CA (1024 bit) [ca.key]
    235616 semi-random bytes loaded

    STEP 2: Generating X.509 certificate signing request for CA [ca.csr]
    You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
    into your certificate request.
    What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
    There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
    For some fields there will be a default value,
    If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.

    Please accept the default values, i.e., just press ENTER instead of a dot.
