    Greetings:
    I am getting an error when I attempt to install ISPconfig on Ubuntu. I am somewhat new to unix but I am attempting to set up my own server behind my isp.
    I followed this ubuntu perfect server guide to set up the server: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu8.04-lts
    Then I am following these instructions to install ISPconfig: http://www.ispconfig.org/manual_installation.htm
    During the setup execution I selected "standard set up". Then I identify my postfix mta and proftpd for ftp. Then I select to use an RSA snake oil cert, answer all of the cert questions. Then several errors fill the screen :(

    Here is the output on the screen:

    STEP 2: Generating X.509 certificate signing request for CA [ca.csr]
    You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
    into your certificate request.
    What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
    There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
    For some fields there will be a default value,
    If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.

    1. Country Name (2 letter code) [XY]:.
    2. State or Province Name (full name) [Snake Desert]:.
    3. Locality Name (eg, city) [Snake Town]:.
    4. Organization Name (eg, company) [Snake Oil, Ltd]:.
    5. Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) [Certificate Authority]:.
    6. Common Name (eg, CA name) [Snake Oil CA]:.
    7. Email Address (eg, [email protected]) [[email protected]]:.

    ERROR: The PHP binary coming with ISPConfig does not work properly on your system! The installation routine stops here!


    Anyone have any advice? Is there any better tutorials or a different unix installation guide that might help?

    Just follow the installation instructions:

    http://www.ispconfig.org/manual_installation.htm

    And dont enter dots when you create a SSL certificate. Either you enter nothing and just press return or you enter valid input but just dots are not enough!
