    I'm going to deploy web hosting ISPConfig for about 300-500 users and i'm interested in some features. I was googling but didn't get clear answer.

    Does ISPConfig3 fully supports php-fpm for both apache and nginx (more interested in apache+php-fpm support)

    How it's real to get Dovecot 2.x (2.0.17, 2.1) support in nearest feature ? This part is very very important for me.

    Any roadmap for future versions ? Or just randomly completing feature requests in bug tracker?

    Thanks in advance.
    Waiting for feedback.

    php-fpm for nginx and fast-cgi for apache.

    The next version will have dovecot2 support builtin. But you can use also the current versions with dovecot 2, you just have to modify the dovecot2.conf file to match the new dovecot2 syntax. There are several threads about that here in the forum and a dovecot2.conf template in the bugtracker.

    See Bugtracker > Roadmap in upper menu.

    Thanks for fast and clear answer.

    why no support of php-fpm for apache. I'm newbie in this question so would like to hear some short answer regarding why apache=fast-cgi, and nginx=php-fpm ?

    PHP-FPM is a new player in the game; it's the default for nginx, and for Apache, the most commonly used option is FastCGI. We might play around with Apache2 + PHP-FPM a bit to see if it has any advantages over FastCGI.

    yep it's new player. but i have seen lot of tutorials for apache+fpm and i think php-fpm bacomes new standart in php-wrappers bringing superior options over fastcgi or su-php, whatever else. i haven't begun buiding my own hosting yet. but in couple months i will. it would be (free) hosting for at least 500-1000 users in the beginning, with dedicated rigs per service, runniing ISP-Confing apache, php-fpm and dovecot.... i can't users suggest nginx+php-fpm becouse apache is still much more common. While doing researches about php wrappers i was amazed with future stack of *FPM.
    so it would be nice to have option in ISP-Config to choose between FastCGI and PHP-FPM (maybe su-php as well).
    Have a nice day.
