    ISPConfig RC2 is available for download. This release is
    the first release candidate for the upcoming ISPConfig 3.0.1 final.

    ISPConfig 3 is a new Hosting Control Panel rewritten from scratch. ISPConfig 3
    is not a direct update for ISPConfig 2. Do not install it on a ISPConfig 2 server.

    Features of ISPConfig 3 compared to ISPConfig 2

    - Support for virtual mail users
    - Support for virtual FTP Users
    - Support for multiple Servers
    - Support for splitting of services to multiple servers
    (Database, web, FTP and DNS can be on different servers).


    The software itself can be downloaded here:

    ISPConfig rc2 is also available as ready to run VMWare virtual
    machine based on Debian 5.0.

    Download of the VMWare image: (approx. 650 MB)

    When you run the vmware image the first time you will be asked to keep
    or create a MAC address. Select "keep", otherwise the networking wont work.

    The root password of the VM is set to "ispconfig", the IP address is and has to be reconfigured in /etc/network/interfaces
    to meet your network requirements. The ISPconfig Interface login is:

    User = admin
    Password = admin.

    - Support for multiple Servers ?

    Is it possible to move a customer (with all his og her sites) to a different server og just a site from one server to another ?

    No, you can not move sites from one server to another in the current releases.

    Maybe 2 stupid questions

    - Support for virtual mail users
    - Support for virtual FTP Users

    Doesn't ISPconfig2 already have the options to create ftp users and mailusers? :p

    Second; does anyone have a screenshot or working demo for ISPconfig3?
  5. till

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    ISPConfig 2 uses linux system users for email and ftp and not virtual users.

    Update v2 to v3

    I've choice ISPConfig to manage my server but I'm in front of a big question, I can't stand for a version 3 stable and version 2 is good but I wanna keep my server up to date to newest thing you'll develop. Can you confirm to me an update to switch from v2 to v3 final release in the futur?

  9. till

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    ISPConfig 2 and not be updated to ispconfig 3, even in future because they have totatlly different system requirements. But there might be a migration script available later, but this will not be an update, its a script to migrate to a new server.

    For now it's not a good idea to switch from old ispconfig 2 to 3, cuz 3 has many bugs. Many things dont work as should, or are questionable. Not to mention crashes of control panel becouse of ajax etc... so it's not a good idea to switch for now. But yeah virtualisation is one of major improovements, since old fashion adding of users is like centuries old... nobody does that in such way anymore.

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    I guess you have some problems that are specific to your installation. ISPConfig is very stable already and has no critical bugs and I know already several internet providers which use ISPConfig 3 sucessfully in production enviroments. Nevertheless is ISPConfig 2 the current stable release and recommended for production use.

    No, no, Till. I'm talking about bugs like reseller being able to add email domains for all clients in the system instead for his own only... then we have this ajax bug, sometimes control panel just stalls and then you get Location: index.php text (if you were in middle of adding email for example it can break your /var/vmail, cuz folders for box weren't made properly...)... Also config generation for apache and suphp is broken too. Needs manual change in php file to make it work... (it's a typo in code) If they use it in production enviroments, then they had to modify/patch it, to remove all the issues it has by default... unfortunately... And btw i use latest version from svn.

    Others seem not to encounter your problems. If you post your issues in the bugtracker, we will reveiw it. If not, they will stay in the sources and dont get fixed. Bugs that are not in the bugtracker until the end of the week will ot get fixed in the final release.

    Hi Till,
    I have a problem. I downloaded VMWare image frome (approx. 650 MB), which you offered. I can log in with url http://VMWare_IP:8080, but I can't login with url: http://WMWare_IP:81 to ISPConfig system.

    Here is output of command netstat -tap

    There is no problem. ISPConfig 3 runs on port 8080 and not port 81.

    If I install a Release Candidate version now, what will the upgrade path look like when the final stable release version comes out?

    Will I loose any data that I create with RC?

    Will the stable version come with an upgrade script or utility? Or will I have to uninstall the RC and reinstall the stable?

    It looks very promising and I am excited to test it on my system.

    Would it be possible now to move my current users/domain/web/configration from ISPConfig 2 to the current version 3.0? on Debian 5.0. ISPConfig 2.0 is curently on Debian 4.0 while an installing Debian 5.0 right now.

    The configuration of ispconfig 2 and 3 are not compatible with each other. If you want to migrate to ispconfig 3 you would have to create evers website, user etc. manually in ispconfig 3 and then copy the html and script files from the old website directory to the enw website directory.

    Thanks Till. Got Debian 5.00 and ISPConfig 3.0.9 working in less than 45 minutes. What a great improvement as compared to ISPConfig 2.0. Well Done. Still finding my way round ISPConfig 3.0.
