    Quite impressed with the application so far. Have a few other servers on Ensim, and built this 5th server using ISPConfig on Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS.
    I have been able to configure everything so far, and have a few "test site" running just fine, with email accounts, database, etc.
    Here are my questions:
    I can send and receive email from the ISPConfig interface? I have not yet installed a web mail client.
    1. I am thinking of using either RoundCube or AlohaMail as opposed to Squirrell -which I have on the other servers and is so UGLY. Which is the recommended options for multiple sites and a good combination of ease of use for the end user and installation of each site or server wide. Does it add an options in the "setup new site interface?
    2. The vast majority of my clients and end users do not use Webmail on a regular basis. What are the settings for email clients like Outlook, Evolution, Entourage, Thunderbird, etc? Email account name, server(s) name, smtp, pop, etc??? I tried different configuration and the connection to the server was rejected.
    3. I tried to change the Currency by editing the en.lng file as recommended on this forum, but the setting are not sticking. The file is updated and changed but the site admin (invoice creation and products interface still show EURO instead of my preferred currency?

    Thanks again for such a great job on this application.

    1) When you install the roundcube .pkk for ISPComfig you will be able to use this for all of your customers.

    2) As smtp and pop3 server you can use any domain or IP pointing to this server, The pop3 and smtp username has the form web[ID]_username which you entered as you created a new email user.

    3) The .lng files are not changed by ISPCOnfig, when you edit the currency there, it will stay until you update ISPConfig to a higher version number. Maybe you changed the wrong .lng file, there is one file for every ISPConfig module.

    follow up question

    ? Which file or files do I need to edit? I do want to have my currency (CAD) as the 'global' (server-wide) currency, for all invoicing, products and services, etc.

    Thanks again.

    What's the output of
    cd /home/admispconfig/ispconfig
    grep -R EURO *

    These are the files where you can change your currency:


    e.g. like this:

    $wb["EURO"] = 'Canadian Dollar';

    I did the currency change on all the language files. It still doesn't show up as Canadian Dollar or CAD in the ISP Invoice interface, is it supposed to? Maybe this only affects the output of the invoicing 'system'. If so, it is ok but could be confusing for the resellers.
    Are the changes in the lng file supposed to affect the ISP invoice Products/items/price currency filed?

    Yes. Is there just one place where the changes have not applied or does the change of the currency has no affect in the complete interface?

    EURO is still the only currency on display in any of the items under ISP Invoice, and when I created a new item (product or services).

    Normally this hack worked for me. I will check the ISPConfig sources if something has changed.

    I've just found out where you can change the currency: Management -> Form Designer -> Edit Form -> isp_fakt - Artikel [Edit] -> artikelpreis [Edit] -> Currency. Replace EUR with CAD, and it should work.

    Re: Changing from Euro

    Also you have to change this one as well in the same form down under that -> weitere_artikelpreis

    It also has Euro in it as well. I found this out when I was changing things to suit me here in the US.

    Also Falko or till or hans, I noticed you use a , to seperate your values in the amount filed is there a way for us in the US to change those to . for example we seperate ours this way $100.00.

    Thanks for your hard work it's a great product guys.

    I have gone through all of these steps, and check all the other places as well.

    It is still coming up EUR...Anyone have any thoughts?

    I am running ISPConfig 2.2.29 on CentOS 4.1

    I have gone through these steps also on ISPConfig 2.2.32 and Debian Etch 4.0 and it is not fixing it either. We charge for everything in USD not EUR so I need to be able to change this.
