    Hi all,
    I am configuring a server on Debian Wheezy and I have a question concerning ISPConfig I need to fix some configuration parameters for postfix and dovecot (different certs and authentication schemes, restrictions, etc.), which means that I modify conf files directly. But as far as I understand, I will lose all changes sooner of later after ISPC update. What could be a solution for this situation? Is it possible to specify my own configuration parameters, so ISPC could use them when re/configuring services? Is ISCP only reconfiguring services during updates or also on reboot or something else?

    ISPConfig changes these config files only on updates.

    You can make the changes update save by copying the config file templates that you modify from install/tpl/ folder of the ispconfig tar.gz file to /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/install/ The files in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/install/ takes precedence over the ones of the ispconfig file on update.

    The problem with config templates is that you will not profit from new features or even security fixes that involve modifications in the config files and are delivered with new versions of ISPconfig.
    Do you see any possibilities to alert the user if a new ISPconfig version is installed with updated config templates and the user has local modified copies of these templates? IMO the differences between the last installed cfg template and the new template should be shown. For this, the original templates also need to be saved locally and must not be deleted after installation.
