    If you create a website and install stuff there, that should work and not mess the ISPConfig setup. However, Rocket chat seems to need MongoDB so that may cause troubles since two database systems are installed.

    I have never tried to install snap packages with debian ... have you installed fuse first? apt install squashfuse
    Have you restarted your server after installation of snapd?

    Hello Steini86,
    Yes i have installed squshfuse, but in debian its via squashfs-tools.
    i rebooted my server, and tried to install another snap, and get same error.
    I tried to find on the web what should it be , and i think it's a kernel problem.
    i send a message to my hoster, but no news for now.
    I'm on ovhserver.

    hello, no i can't because i have ispconfig on my server with sites on.
    And don't have MongoDb installed... this is why snap interested me a lot .

    As far as I have seen, rocket.chat runs on a port which is not used by ispconfig, they should run smoothly in parallel
    Snap will also install a MongoDB because that is used by rocket.chat. It is just "inside" your snap package

    Snap is an Ubuntu package...it doesn't work on debian as far as I am aware.
    Also, snaps version of rocket chat is for a minimal Ubuntu system

    I have snaps rocket chat running on an ugh th system no problem...I stalled it just over 2 month ago.
    All administration is done via ssh with putty and snaps rocket chat console.

    I wouldn't run rocket chat on a system hosting websites, I think that is a bad idea. Buy a vps (Vultr or OVH have really cheap pricing) and put it on that

    yes i think it would be bettre to have a vps only for it.

    Snap is available for Debian 9 and 10: https://snapcraft.io/docs/installing-snap-on-debian
    However, seems like corto's server does not allow installation. Searching the internet, there are quite a few people having problems with snap in a vm.

    Yes there is snap for debian 9 and 10.
    i contacted my hoster, and said that they can't do nothing.... and that if i want i can change kernel....
    But i don't want to do mistakes doing that.
