    Hi, whe are setting up the pannel to manage a web site and several email accounts. Everything is working very well, we have been testing new mail accounts created in the pannel, and they work just fine. But now we have to create about 300 new mail accounts, and some others mail aliases. All the email accounts use the same domain.

    I was wondering if there is a script or something like that, to add the new users to the domain, so we dont have to add 300 accounts manually.
    I think I could add all the system users in the server, and edit the virtusertable, but this would solve the half of the problem. I need to see all the new mail accounts in the pannel too. Maybe editting the db_ispconfig database....

    I would apreciate very much if someone could give me a hint... sorry about my english, i know it isnt very good :)

    ok, thank you very much, it seems that it will solve my problem.
    Do you think I could install the remoting plugin without upgrading to a development release of the panel?? The current installation of the panel is almost at a production stage and i dont know if the best thing to do, is install this new development release.

    again, thanks a lot

    The stable branch of ISPConfig does not has XML enabled, thats why the remoting plugin wont work with them by default. But you can enable XML in the stable branch by installing the libxml2-dev package from your linux distribution. Then download the latest stable release installer again, modify the following file:


    replace the line (no. 127 in the ISPConfig 2.2.6 script:

    ./configure --with-apxs=${INSTALL_ROOT}/httpd/bin/apxs --enable-track-vars --enable-sockets --enable-mbstring=all --with-config-file-path=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php --enable-ftp --prefix=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php ${WITH_OPENSSL} ${WITH_MYSQL} --disable-libxml --disable-dom --disable-xml ${WITH_ZLIB_DIR} --disable-xmlreader --disable-xmlwriter --disable-simplexml --without-pear || error "Could not configure PHP"

    ./configure --with-apxs=${INSTALL_ROOT}/httpd/bin/apxs --enable-track-vars --enable-sockets --enable-mbstring=all --with-config-file-path=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php --enable-ftp --prefix=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php ${WITH_OPENSSL} ${WITH_MYSQL}  ${WITH_ZLIB_DIR} --without-pear || error "Could not configure PHP"
    and then run the setup script. The installer will upgrade your existing installation.

    Before you do this, make a backup of the directories:


    and the ISPConfig mysql database. In case anything goes wrong during upgrade, restore the backups.
