    Not sure if the APS Installer is working in a multi-server setup. Using it for sites that were on my main server worked, trying to install Wordpress to other servers got stuck with a status of "Installation Task". Accessing ISPConfig directly on the other server and clicking on Wordpress in the "Installed" packages menu gave me a:


    The metafile for WordPress couldn't be found".

    I looked at "Available Packages" and it was blank, so I did an "Update Packagelist" and they eventually appeared. It no longer gives me an error about the metafile, but the previous tasks still says "Installation Task" and if I try to redo the install it says "The installation path already contains a package installation."

    ispconfig 3 - APS library repo URL??!?

    I had successfully populated the packagelist in the beta/release, with a hit & miss approach. I, too, "eventually" saw the catalog populate, but was uncertain what the trigger, or eventual URL actually was.


    Now that I've updated my production server which offers supports for the package manager, I've lost my repository entry & I am again struggling to reimport the APS Package Installer library.

    Can you please share what the URL is that you've used to access the library?

    Many thanks,

    There has nothing to be changed, the URL's to the aps repository is hardcoded in the code (as it was in the rc2 as well) and there is also no external library required.

    As you talk about a repository entry, I guess you mix up the ispconfig extension repository with the aps installer, they are two different technologies and not related to each other. You dont need any repository entrys for the aps installer.
