    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if I need to run the update script plus the required command (apt-get install bzip2 p7zip xz-utils lzip rar unrar-free goaccess dovecot-lmtpd) to every server in my setup.
    To be more specific I got:
    2 x email servers
    2 x db servers
    2 x web servers
    2 x dns servers
    1 x control panel

    For example on the control panel server, I guess is not required to install the dovecot-lmtpd and same for the web/dns servers?

    Thanks

    Correct, lmtp is only needed on mail servers, and goaccess is only needed on web servers; the other utilities are all used for backups (web/db/mail), so load those on all but dns servers (which do not have a backup function).

    Thanks for the clarification Jesse.
    One more question please. The DNS zones how can I backup them in order for a quick restore if server has a failure? Do I need just to get the directory that holds the zones and the .conf files of bind?

    You could do that (make sure the zone files are in text, not binary, format), and also could dump the dbispconfig database, it just depends what/how you would be restoring them.

    I think all dns zones should be in the ISPConfig master database and in the dns server(s) database(s), so back up both databases.
