    hi dclardy, first of all i want to thank you for creating this script, been looking for some automation script to install ispconfig3, i salute you for this :). I have only a follow-up question sir, is the script for CentOS complete?

    If you have multi IP's at your server, make sure that DNS A record has the same IP as vhost.

    The script is not complete, but I am working on it. I don't use CentOS, and it is harder for me to get this done. I will be spinning up a test box to try and get it going.

    Alright. It has been awhile since I have updated the script any, but I have made some major changes.

    Please let me know what you think.

    1. Add latest Debian and Ubuntu Support
    2. Added Whiptail for prompts. (Looks way cleaner!)

    In Progress:
    1. RoundCube Support
    2. Theme Installation Support

    ISPConfig Script

    I am interested in a version of this script for openSUSE 12.3. I have not been able to get the install instructions to work. I am able to execute all the instructions for version 12.2 (with the appropriate modifications in the links), but when I run I don't get the login screen shown in the tutorial. Just two options:

    Skip to the navigation. Skip to the content.

    If anyone knows what's wrong, I would appreciate it, or a copy of that script for opensuse.

    Alright. I have gotten RoundCube Installation support added in. It is a different bash script. Please test this out. I have several times, but I might have missed something.

    I am working on the Theme Installation part of it. Initially, I will probably only install my theme, but I am a little biased in that regard!

    Why restarting Apache2 manually after VPS reboot?

    There is one small issue: after each reboot of my VPS I have to restart apache2 manually: /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

    I don't understand why, so I can't find a solution for that.

    VPS, 1 GB memory - Debian 7 64bit
    Installed ISPConfig3 and Roundcube with your install scripts and there were no errors or whatsoever.
    Everything is working nice and smoothfull, as I already stated elsewhere in this topic.

    I am not sure where you are getting this error from. I am not installing anything form that repo. My script does not include those plugins because you have to create a remote user in ISPConfig, and I have not figured out a way to do that just yet from the command line.

    What web server did you pick? I am guessing Apache was the one, but I want to be sure. If you run this update–rc.d apache2 defaults, it should be loading itself every time afterwards. My script doesn't do anything to change that.


    I found the issue. I had placed a command in the wrong section. That has been corrected now.

    Indeed, it is Apache2. Sorry I did not mention that in the post.

    I used the command you gave. Problem SOLVED

    Glad that worked for you.

    I have added another script to install themes now. I have added my theme, and I will be adding some of the other good ones around here. If you know of any, send them my way.

    these are the instructions i followed

    Ubuntu Installation Instructions:

    Run this command:

    cd /tmp; wget --no-check-certificate -O ISPConfig3.tgz; tar zxvf ISPConfig3.tgz; cd *Installer*; bash
    Answer the onscreen prompts. The script stops so that you can see the appropriate answers.
    Enjoy the completed installation.

    I think there might be a typo in the script as debian is mentioned in all the setups

    Many thanks Richard c

    further to my last post i changes the reference about Debian to Ubuntu and got this reply.

    404 not found.
    gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file.
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    bash: cd: *installer*: no such file or directory
    bash: No such file or directory

    ready to give up on this install and i don't know why when others swear by it

    Looking forward for some replies

    Why dont you use the official and normal way to install ispconfig? Instead you use a third party script which is not tested by the ispconfig deveopers.

    If you ant to install ispconfig reliably, just follow the official installation instructions for ubuntu 12.04:
