    I have just installed ISPConfig In the Apache Virtual Host I am seeing directories for both the client and the actual web site, amongst others, in "PHP open_basedir":


    I'm pretty sure this should not be happening! Anyone got any ideas?

    BTW, I don't have phpmyadmin installed (and won't unless it's essential for ISPCConfig to function properly) so I don't see why that should be in there.

    Please ask if any more info required.

    Also - I've just noticed that on the Sites -> Database page, the field widths are far too small.

    Lastly - would I be right in guessing that there's no simple way to transfer data between my old ISPConfig 2 server and my new ISPConfig 3 one?

    The open_basedir settings are absolutely correct. If you take a closer look on your filesystem then you will recognize that some of them are symlinks. And beside that, its all freely configurayble under System > server config > web for new servers and Sites > websites > options for individual sites.

    Ok, you you basically tell us that you did not follow the installation instructions for ISPConfig 3 that contain the installation of phpmyadmin before the installation of ispconfig. If you dont want to use phpmyadmin, then remove the path from the open basedir as I described above.

    They are not too small here in ISPConfig Please note that the mysql restricts the length of usernames and database names and not ISPConfig. Take a look at the mysql documentation.

    ISPConfig 2 and ISPConfig 3 are completely different software packages, the only thing they ashre is the first part of the name. There are no import scripts available for ISPConfig 2.

    Thanks for the swift & helpful reply, Till.

    :eek: OK - I somehow missed that row of tabs at System > server config > web. I guess I might have been in too much of a hurry to find my way around 3, having been running 2 for several years :/

    Indeed. None of my users would use it and I prefer the SQL Server module in Webmin... I kinda assumed leaving it out wouldn't be an issue.


    I don't think I explained myself well. The fields are one-character wide drop-down boxes. Might be a browser issue on my machine. I'll check in another one.

    I thought that might be the case. Oh well, I guess I have a week's work ahead of me porting my users one-by-one :{ I was pretty much expecting that... seemed to be a better idea than installing 2 on a new server :)

    Thanks again - and thanks for ISPConfig!

    ISPConfig 2 is not maintained anymore and is not installable on latest Linux distributions due to changes in the libc, so it is recommended to use ISPonfig 3 dor new installs.

    It should be input fields for mysql username and password in ISPConfig 3.0., I'am not aware of any briwser issues in the current release, maybe its a problem with abrowser plugin or similar issue.

    If it shows like this in a different browser, too, maybe try posting a screenshot. Might help.
