    Hi all,

    I'm very new to linuix And ISPconfig.
    I followed the perfect setup for ubuntu 7.0.4

    I now need to install ispconfig. I have read the help file and it says i have to download the file.

    I'm a windows man... wanting to convert. I can only download by clicking, not using the command lines of linux.

    Can you help...

    Go here, and scrolldown about 1/3rd. You will see Installation.

    Basically, you will need to make a SSH connection with your server, and download the file into the /tmp dir (make sure that you are the ROOT user).
    To change into the /tmp dir use this command:
    cd /tmp
    Now you need to download the ISPconfig install file.
    Use the following command:
    When done downloading, you will need to untar (like winzip/winrar) the file.
    Use this command:
    tar xvfz ISPConfig-2.2.13.tar.gz
    Now you will need to step into the dirctory.
    Do so with:
    cd install_ispconfig
    After that you can start the installation with:
    Have fun, and good luck!

    It depends a lot on howfast your system is.
    For me about 10 minutes.

    One more small thing: Make sure you select NO (as suggested in the install howto) at step 7 ("Encrypting RSA private key of CA with a pass phrase for security [ca.key]") and step 8 ("Encrypting RSA private key of SERVER with a pass phrase for security [server.key]")

    Hey Edge,

    Do you get different themes for ISPConfig?

    No. ISPconfig does only have one theme. Feel free to make a new one if you like.

    Hi, another very newbie to linux,I've managed to install debian etch and my ispconfig is some what working, I can access it via ip address but gets the page can not be displayed when I use the url, what have I done wrong? I can not access or aswell.

    I've got a number of questions but I prefer asking one step at a time.

    Thanks in advance

    Please make sure that your domain points to the correct IP address. If your ISPConfig server is behind a router, the domain must point to the router's public IP address, and you must forward port 81 from your router to your ISPConfig server.
