    Hi There,

    I'm trying to install ISPConfig 2.2.17 stable on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.

    I followed the exact instructions from: www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06

    when I run setup from this dir
    $:/root/dowloads/install_ispconfig/

    ./setup

    I get a lot of questions:

    ISPConfig found the following MTA:
    postfix
    Is this correct? [y/n]: y

    Virtusertable-File: /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    Is this correct? [y/n]:y

    there is no file named /etc/postfix/virtusertable so I made it with;

    $touch /etc/postfix/virtusertable

    same here:
    Local-Host-Names-File: /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    Is this correct? [y/n]y

    the file /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    does not exist so i made it with:

    $touch /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    but in the end I always get:

    ########## FTP SERVER ##########

    Checking if an FTP server is installed...
    ERROR: Your system configuration is not compatible with ISPConfig! The installation routine stops here!
    I thought maybe the upgrade which I ran:

    $apt-get update
    $apt-get upgrade

    might have screwed things up, but I'm not sure.

    also I noticed that the program was looking for /etc/proftpd.conf
    but proftpd.conf is in /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf so I made a softlink like this:

    $ln -s /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf /etc/proftpd.conf



    should I make changes to the dist.txt file? If so what changes?

    Anybody with the same problem? or any ideas how to fix this???

    Help would be much appreciated ;-)

    gr,

    E.

    You where asked by the installer for the number of days that the cert should be valid and you entered a dot instaed of a number, so the installer stopped.

    3650 is ok, but you should press enter for all other questions to make sure you don't enter anything invalid.
