    - Bugfix: Added a patch that fixed a compile problem in ClamAV on Fedora Linux 11 and below.

    Changed system requirements

    This release requires that you have these two new Perl modules installed on your system: NetAddr::IP and Archive::Tar

    Installation instructions for the new Perl modules:


    apt-get install libnetaddr-ip-perl libarchive-tar-perl

    yum install perl-NetAddr-IP perl-Archive-Tar

    yast -i perl-NetAddr-IP perl-Archive-Tar

    urpmi perl-NetAddr-IP perl-Archive-Tar
    CentOS 5.x (x86_64):

    yum install perl-Archive-Tar
    rpm -ivh
    CentOS 5.x (i386):

    yum install perl-Archive-Tar
    rpm -ivh
    CentOS 4.x (x86_64):

    yum install perl-Archive-Tar
    rpm -ivh
    CentOS 4.x (i386):

    yum install perl-Archive-Tar
    rpm -ivh



    Installation Instructions

    Download the ISPConfig-2.2.36.tar.gz from


    Installation on the shell as root user:

    tar xvfz ISPConfig-2.2.36.tar.gz

    I'm not using ISPconfig 2 anymore, but would still like to thank the team of developers for the great work that they all do!

    Thank you!

    Well, I'm using Debian Etch on an VPS from HostEurope... with apt-get it installs NetAddr::IP 3.14. At the end I get these messages and the hole server is killed (ispconfig folder is gone):

    Any idea?

    ERROR: the required NetAddr::IP module is installed (3.14),
    but is below the minimum required version 4.000,
    some functionality will not be available.
      Used in determining which DNS tests are to be done for each of
      the header's received fields, and used by AWL plugin for extracting network
      address from an IPv6 addresses (and from IPv4 address on nondefault mask).
    NOTE: the optional Digest::SHA module is not installed.
      The Digest::SHA module is required by the DKIM plugin.
    NOTE: the optional Mail::SPF module is not installed.
      Used to check DNS Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records to fight email
      address forgery and make it easier to identify spams.
    NOTE: the optional IP::Country module is not installed.
      Used by the RelayCountry plugin (not enabled by default) to determine
      the domain country codes of each relay in the path of an email.
    NOTE: the optional Net::Ident module is not installed.
      If you plan to use the --auth-ident option to spamd, you will need
      to install this module.
    NOTE: the optional IO::Socket::INET6 module is not installed.
      This is required if the first nameserver listed in your IP
      configuration or /etc/resolv.conf file is available only via an
      IPv6 address. Also used by a DCC plugin to access dccifd over network.
    NOTE: the optional IO::Socket::SSL module is not installed.
      If you wish to use SSL encryption to communicate between spamc and
      spamd (the --ssl option to spamd), you need to install this
      module. (You will need the OpenSSL libraries and use the
      ENABLE_SSL="yes" argument to Makefile.PL to build and run an SSL
      compatibile spamc.)
    NOTE: the optional Mail::DKIM module is not installed,
    minimum required version is 0.31, recommended version is 0.37 or higher.
      If this module is installed and the DKIM plugin is enabled,
      SpamAssassin will perform DKIM signature verification when DKIM-Signature
      header fields are present in the message headers, and check ADSP rules
      (e.g. anti-phishing) when a mail message does not contain a valid author
      domain signature. Version 0.37 or later is needed to fully support ADSP.
    NOTE: the optional Encode::Detect module is not installed.
      If you plan to use the normalize_charset config setting to detect
      charsets and convert them into Unicode, you will need to install
      this module.

    You can try to install the module manually in a newer version. Remove the one from debian:

    apt-get remove --purge libnetaddr-ip-perl

    then start the perl shell:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell

    and inside the perl shell install it with the command:

    install NetAddr::IP

    to quit the perl shell when the install is done, press "q".

    Then recreate the /root/ispconfig directory before you try to update ispconfig again:

    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    ok, thanks. Was working correct with 2.2.35 on this test server :)

    It looks like it wants to install clean now. Is there a trick to get it back to upgrade mode?
  8. till

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    See my not in #4:

    Then recreate the /root/ispconfig directory before you try to update ispconfig again:

    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    If it runs in install mode, then kill the process or you might loose all data in the ispconfig database.

    Will give it a try by upgrading cpan, too...however, I had to reload my backup, because the setup finished by killing the ispconfig-setup-folder, too...

    I had the same problem
    but with Tills instructions I managed to install
    it is vary crucial to run
    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    before you try to reinstall ISPConfig
    otherwise it will mess your system...
    Also I had to recreate the ssl certificates for ISPconfig
    all well now..

    File size limit exceeded

    I still have the same problem after updating to the latest version.

    /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/logs.php
    File size limit exceeded

    My largest logfile is about 1.5 Gb.

    Ok, updating manually (and updating CPAN itself) did the trick...thanks!

    I can confirm successfull upgrade on ubuntu 8.04. Thanks for good job.

    If I switch on new root permissions options on stats and logs how can I force to change permissions on existing directories please?

    Thanks SupuS

    Problem compiling PHP

    THANK YOU for the upgrade!

    On both Fedora Core 10 and Centos 5.4 I hit the same error while compiling PHP:

    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lltdl
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [] Error 1
    ERROR: Could not make PHP

    Any ideas?

    The ld linker program seems to be missing. Please search for it with:

    yum search ld
  19. rbartz

    The ld program could not find the lltdl which is with the libtool and libtool-ltdl packages.

    Interestingly, the Centos 5.4 system went ahead and compiled without errors the SECOND time I tried. Not sure why I even tried, just to see I guess. But, it went OK, and went right on through the PHP install and finished the install complete! Success!

    When I googled lltdl I found this is not an uncommon PHP compile problem, the usual solution seems to be to symlink the file in the directory that ld looks for it with:

    ln -s

    I am not sure yet what directory that might be, but I will let you know when I discover it. In the meantime, I will try to run the install again on the Fedora 10 system. Since it went ahead the SECOND time on the Centos, it seems like it is worth a try.

    (Hint to others who are UPGRADING: If you do go for a second try AFTER a failure, BE SURE to remake the ispconfig directory BEFORE you try again or reinstall an older version with: "mkdir /root/ispconfig".)

    ADDED INFO: The SECOND time I attempted to install ispconfig on the Fedora Core 10 system, it did NOT fail either. That is VERY STRANGE but true on my servers. How weird is that? IF you try the second time, be SURE to recreate the /root/ispconfig directory BEFORE you make a new attempt!

    Upgrade but Spamassassin is not working

    Again, thank you for the upgrade!

    This has been a strange upgrade for me. After the second attempt 2.2.36 installed complete on Centos 5.4 and Fedora 10, however, now the spamassassin is not checking mail. Nothing in the database changed, the clamav is checking for viruses and marking the headers appropriately.

    However, there are no x-spam lines in the mail headers indicating that the messages are checked by spamassissin, and not marking of spam...

    How can I check the operation of spamassassin?
