    Hi to every one. I am really want to use ISPConfig on FreeBSD servers. I am already start to port it (starting from ISPConfig-2.2.31) to *BSD-like operation system and have some questions and problems.

    Could the developers specify the required set of modules for php? That would be wonderful to start. I experimented with a set of modules that logically should be. I want to receive the minimum distribution of ISPConfig.

    It would be grat if people who want to use ISPConfig on FreeBSD and other systems Unixway start to work on that. Need to develop clear guidelines on the use this hosting-panel on the above systems. I would like to hear comments from people who have already did that.

    In the near future I have laid out the archives containing the corrected scripts that are normally installed on FreeBSD 6.x. Now I am doing testing version that corrected and successfully installed. If the developers would be willing to support initiatives I would be glad to receive any signal on this.

    Thanks to all :) !!!

    P.S. Sorry for my bad english :rolleyes:

    there is no required set of modules for the php on the main apache. The second php which comes with ispconfig is only used on controlpanel server on port 81, you find the compile options for this php in install_ispconfig/compile_aps/compile

    Have you considered to use ispconfig 3 instaed of ispconfig 2, I guess ispconfig 3 will be much easier to port to freebsd as it does not compile any applications itself during setup.

    Thank you for reply. I have already found compilation script 'compile'. In my mind is better to compile build in php-module for (ispconfig) apache. In my version the compilation options for php looks like this:

    ./configure \
    --prefix=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php5 \
    --disable-all \
    --with-apache=../${APACHE} \
    --with-config-file-path=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php5 \
    --with-pcre-regex \
    --with-mysql=/usr/local \
    --with-zlib \
    --enable-session \
    --enable-sockets \
    --enable-libxml \
    --enable-xml \
    --with-mcrypt=/usr/local \
    --enable-sysvshm \
    --enable-ftp \
    --enable-mbstring \
    So the majority of it is '--disable-all' option with disable all extensions which are enabled by default.

    Also a good option, but I want to finish first with ISPConfig 2.x :rolleyes:
