    I have followed this perfect guide:
    No error occurred while installing and configuring it.

    But when I want to run the ./setup from the installation directory for ISPconfig. I get this error:
    root: ~/install_ispconfig
    # ./setup
    Debian lenny/sid.0
    ERROR: Ihr Betriebssystem wird nicht unterst├╝tzt! / Your operating system is not supported! / Votre systeme d'exploitation n'est pas support├ę!

    My system is a newly installed Debian 4.0 R0. I thought Etch was supported?

    Did you install Etch Stable or did you use an RC1 version or ?
    Can you mention here what is within your /etc/apt/sources.list ?

    Yes i see,

    You did load a RC (Release Candidate) version of Debian Etch, because the official release of Etch was on 8-4-2007!

    Your download is from 7-4-2007.

    When the official release of Debian Etch is installed, you should see:
    "stable" in stead of "etch" within your /etc/apt/sources.list.

    Now, ISPConfig recognises your Debian version as Debian "lenny" which is the new testing branche.

    You can try to change "etch" within "stable" within your /etc/apt/sources.list.
    If you do so, probably ISPConfig will run, but must to realise that you have installed packages provided via the new Debian testing branche "lenny" already!

    If you check their page it says thats the stable release :).

    Latest official release of the "stable" CD images: 4.0 rev0. And use the link they refer to and you actually download the version I have. Which seems a bit strange if you call it a testing dist.

    Just did some checking, and the release I am using is the right one. They were put online on the mirror-servers the day before.

    Your current debian release is the unstable branch and not the current stable etch branch.

    To install ISPConfig, edit the file /etc/debian_version so that it conmtains just "4.0" and then try to install ISPConfig again.

    It was the right version yes :). But I earlier that evening changed it to testing, since I was trying another hosting panel.
    Though it didn't seem liked I could reversed it, I just reinstalled and ISPconfig worked like a charm.
    So it was the right version I downloaded just that I had changed to testing once, and I could reverse it. Thanks for the help anyway :). Have a nice evening.
