    Hello all,

    Is there any documentation out there on how to install Wordpress in an ISPConfig 3 environment?

    1) Create a website in ispconfig with php-fcgi and suexec enabled.
    2) Create a database in ispconfig.
    3) Go to the website directory (the best way is that you login with a shell user of that website, so you dont have to change any file owners) and follow the wordpress installation instructions:

    Dunno if you already resolved your question yourself.
    In ISPConfig you can either create a shell user account for that Web / User or the one I prefer is using a piece of software called "putty" Putty lets you connect via SSH as any existing user on you server. However, this way, you'll have to watch again for file permissions.
    Good luck!
