    Hi there Falko,

    I'm a bit of a newbiw at this but I have been following you instructions for the perfect setup and have had a few little problems, you may have address these already else where but I cant find the awnsers so if you have sorry.

    1: When running apt-get I have noticed there are a few packages that I dont seem to get, I have even changed that source.list to match your exactly but cant find the following "ncftp" and also "libmysqlclient12-dev" the later one seen to give error of "libmysqlclient12-dev is not avalible, but referred to by another package."

    2: I also have same problem as the person has reffered to at the bottom of Page 4

    "No matter how closely these directions are followed, I've been unable to keep mysql happy. After performing the line:
    mysqladmin -u -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
    After doing that I always get the error:
    mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
    I'm thinking a step or two might not have made it into this write up."

    And also Page 5

    "Afterwards we create the certificates for TLS" the command:

    openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024

    returns the prompt:
    Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
    It isn't obvious for the non-versed what one should do. Should this be a passwordless certificate or not?
    The same holds true for the next command also. It requires user input that is not mentioned."

    Cheers Dave :D

    Other Packages

    There also seem to be other packages that I can't get using apt-get install.

    these include the following... any surgestions?

    apt-get install webalizer

    apt-get install libdb-file-lock-perl

    php5-imap php5-mcrypt

    apt-get install proftpd proftpd-common ucf

    1) Please check your sources list again, you must have the universe and multiverse repositories enabled. Then run:

    apt-get update

    and install the missing packages, The howto is definetly workin, I use it every few days to install servers :)

    2) You can ignore that and set the 2nd root password with phpmyadmin after you finished the installation.

    3) Enter any password you like. The password is required even if its a passwordless certificate that is created at the end. So the password does not matter.

    What's the exact error message? Do you run the ISPConfig installer as root?

    Sorry feeling a little like a bird brain........ Have been away for a few days had an illness in family . I figured out that I forgot to CHmod the folder before install..... have installed it now but I need to figure out how to use it for myself and set it up for what require not really sure how can you point me in the direction of good tutorial..... need to do things like change billing from $eu to $nz stuff like that still need to work out how to run it for hosting..... site... not sure the manual talks about IP addresses but I'm not sure if they mean I need Realworld IP's for the internet or just on my local network.....

    You can find most answers to your questions here in the forum. :)

    Always use the IP addresses in ISPConfig that you see when you run
    on the shell, no matter if the system is in a LAN or in a data center...

    sorry to revive a very old thread, but I never had the universe and multiverse active. is that still a requirement?
