    Hi, can I install all by hand compilation in my own path.??
    I'm manually install all the things, like pure-ftpd, apache, php, posfix, .....
    I'm installing in a path like "/soft/ftp", "/soft/httpd/"....

    There's any restriction

    I just started the installation process but before a finish I wanna now if there's any restriction with manual install or/with the path's?

    Any help is appreciated!!!
    By Apt-get is more easy to install and to upgrade but,
    manually installed in the machine the performance its really better!! :D
    I need the best performance because i will handle hundred of domain's

    By the way... I'm documenting all the process, and after I will submit to howtoforge.
    I'm following the Perfect server Debian but without apt-get's

    We're running 1000+ domains with mail with apt-get packages just fine, so i don't see any benefits from using tarballs, unless you want to learn how to compile your own stuff and / or need to have your own customised package requirements. packages saves you alot of hassle.

    But besides that, as long as you set a --prefix then you should be just fine.

    hi, thanks for the reply!! And for let me now that you run 1000's of domains without problem's.

    My company make me a requirement and its to be compiled on the machine.:eek:
    this requirement is because we have old servers with 1000's of domains and a hudge trafic of mail without problem for more than 3 years.

    I will lose some days on installing and testing process before go to production.

    Simple a amazing

    Great suggestion!! :D
    Simple script to do all!!

    the only doubt I have is if ISPconfig 3 requires the default path's.
    But now I see that is not a requirement!!! Great Panel
    Other panel that I have tried just look in the default folder if not just fails!!:(

    I'm new to ISPconfig but i'm turning on a fan!!!

    The unique thing that the customer's/clients could complain is for a web-ftp and install script (like joomla, wordpress) and less complexity for DNS or auto Add a DNS zone wen add a domain.

    web-ftp I found a solution here in the forum, and auto-script installer is in the next release.

    Thanks. And great panel.
    I hope in the future, help the project.
    (for now, and the next few mouth's I'm with lots of works)
    Sorry for my English, I hope everybody could understand me.
