There is a new version of this tutorial available for Fedora 21.

Installing A LAMP System With Fedora Core 6 - Page 6

12 ProFTPd

ISPConfig has better support for proftpd than vsftpd, so let's remove vsftpd and install proftpd:

yum remove vsftpd

yum install proftpd

chkconfig --levels 235 proftpd on
/etc/init.d/proftpd start


13 Webalizer

To install webalizer, just run

yum install webalizer


14 Synchronize The System Clock

If you want to have the system clock synchronized with an NTP server do the following:

yum install ntp

chkconfig --levels 235 ntpd on
/etc/init.d/ntpd start


15 Install Some Perl Modules

ISPConfig comes with SpamAssassin which needs a few Perl modules to work. We install the required Perl modules with a single command:

yum install perl-HTML-Parser perl-DBI perl-Net-DNS perl-Digest-SHA1


16 The End

The configuration of the server is now finished, and if you wish you can now install ISPConfig on it, following these instructions:


16.1 A Note On SuExec

If you want to run CGI scripts under suExec, you should specify /var/www as the home directory for websites created by ISPConfig as Fedora's suExec is compiled with /var/www as Doc_Root. Run

/usr/sbin/suexec -V

and the output should look like this:

Unless you install ISPConfig in expert mode and change the default web root (which is /var/www), you will be able to run CGI scripts under suExec with ISPConfig. The following screenshot is taken from an ISPConfig installation in expert mode. If you want to use ISPConfig, then don't change the default web root:
