    This can happen when you install more then one package per website depending on the packagees, file and folder names etc. I will see if we add a option that the admin can disable the ability to install more then one package per site.

    APS Installer failed

    I tried to use the installer to install wordpress 3.5 to the root of a website.

    Unfortunately I got "installation_error". When I check in the error.log file I see that wp-load.php tries to access to /var/www/<website>/wp-config.php file instead of /var/www/<website>/web/wp-config.php

    Is it an aps installer error or something missconfig on my side ? Where can I check APS installer logs ?

    I had tested the wordpress install last week and it worked fine at that time. What did you enter into the path field?

    The aps installer has no separate log. See sticky post in thegeneral forum for debug instructions.

    I left it empty, because I wanted to install WP at the root.

    So in Basic settings on the "Install location" line I had:

    Installation location http(s)://<website fqdn> / <field empty>

    Thats ok, these are the settings I tested before the RC was released. So maybe the aps package from was updated or is broken at the moment.

    heres my server log ;

    [Sat Dec 29 12:59:07 2012] [warn] [client] (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server
    [Sat Dec 29 12:59:07 2012] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: index.php

    So the problem is fastcgi, and im not sure how to fix it?

    Check that the path to the php cgi binary in the file /var/www/php-fcgi-scripts/ispconfig/.php-fcgi-starter is correct.

    It was wrong, however corrected it, restarted httpd, still same errors.

    How would simply updating from 3.0.4 to 3.0.5rc1 break it ?

    The php fastcgi binary does not nescessarily has the name "php", on most distributions it is nmed php-cgi or php5-cgi while the binary with the name "php" is just the php cli version.

    Did you install our server exactly as described in the perfect setup guide?

    gjm31 New Member

    Still no luck here.

    And yes installed it exact, and as said, worked fine on 3.0.4, but the update to 3.0.5rc1 has totally broken it :(

    gjm31 New Member

    yes :(

    did a restart of apache, and still same problems, just really dont get how 3.0.4 would work and now 3.0.5 doing this?

    Thousands of lines of code have been changed or added and the new setup is stricter and more secure, so this can lead to problems. We did not had such a problem in our tests, I will add your problem to our bugtracker so we can test it on centos 6.3 again.

    What you can do as a workaround is to edit the /etc/httpd/sites-enabled/000-ispconfig.vhost file and remove the # in fron of the line:

    # <IfModule mod_php5.c>


    # </IfModule>

    and restart apache.

    This version seems to complete everything he failed to ISPConfig
    This is perfect!
    However I have some suggestions:
    Major security problems :
    -Check if the mail you want use is not already used by another
    -Secure domain-management, because right now we can use any domain name that is well configured or not and the most important is that you can use the domain name of the other clients, even that is the domain of the host causing a problem with the security (easy Fishing for every one !)
    -So there is a very big problem: If a client makes a false certificate SS ... all the server (apache) crash! and without exception! Without exception!
    It was all i think..

    This is a configuration issue in your install and not a security issue as ispconfig has functions to protect you against this. The function is named domain limit. Go to System > Interface > Main config and enable the checkbox "Use the domain limits in client module to add new domains" to enable the domain limit function.

    The domain limit function is visible then in the left menu of the client module.

    This problem existed in as apache is not able to skip malformed ssl certificates. It has been solved in 3.0.5 by including the ssl configuration part into the config rollback, so a client can not crahs apache anymore as ispconfig will use the last working configuration or ssl certificate.
