    I am going through the above install got this message : -

    Code:
    root@web:/etc/postfix/ssl# apt-get install proftpd proftpd-common ucf
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package proftpd-common is a virtual package provided by:
      proftpd 1.3.0-9ubuntu0.1
    You should explicitly select one to install.
    E: Package proftpd-common has no installation candidate
    root@web:/etc/postfix/ssl#
    It is not what I expected. :(

    I have also in my haste added the below commands not realising that I didn't have to do it because I intend to install ISPConfig. :eek:

    Code:
    postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
    postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
    Do I need to rectify this & if so how do I do it.

    I was so pleased that my installation appeared to be going well up to this point.

    Thanks !!

    PS - I will be away for a couple of days!!

    I've had the same error a few minutes ago. Ran through the install the other day and it didn't happen. Is the relevant server/file down?

    For the moment I'd just use
    Code:
    apt-get install proftpd
    That seems to get the latest version. If not, it's only a few hours work to start the install from scratch if needs be.

    When trying to install proftpd I get the following error (I also get the same error trying to install courier). I have not touched my sources.list (nor do I know how to access it)

    Code:
    apt-get install proftpd
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package proftpd

    nm on my above reply. I google sources.list and uncommented all the other servers and I was able to find proftpd and courier. Both are installed now without any problems :D

    Run
    Code:
    apt-get update
    to update your package database.

    There was a bug in old Proftpd packages. I think they created a new one that conatains everything you need, and therefore proftpd-common doesn't exist anymore. Just install the package proftpd.

    You can leave it as it is. It's no problem. :)

    I did that & it worked! Thanks! :)

    Thanks again! I find comfort with that knowledge.

    I then got to installing ISPConfig but that failed.

    See attached output!!

    What went wrong? :confused:

    I have restarted the ISPConfig installation (suggested in the online manual) which is going fine until : -

    Code:
    Please enter the host name (e.g. www):www
    Please enter the domain (e.g. xyz.de):fiwiyaad.com
    The URL is not reachable!
    The domain name is www.fiwiyaad.com. The manual suggests entering the domain name without the www.

    No need to respond. My installation of Edgy Eft is now complete. I will post all queries re ISPConfig in the appropriate Forum.

    Thanks for all your help :cool:

    What's the exact error message?
    What's in /etc/apt/sources.list?
