The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.3 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3] - Page 2

Click on Edit Partition Setup... to change the proposed partitions. As this is a server setup, we need a large /srv partition instead of the /home partition:

Select /dev/sda3 and click on Edit...:

Change the Mount Point to /srv and click on Finish:

Click on Accept:

Click on Next:

Now I create a user named administrator. You may use any username you like. Make sure that you disable the Automatic Login checkbox for this user. The password that you enter here will be used as the root password:

The installer shows an overview of the selected install options. Scroll down to the Firewall and SSH section and enable SSH...

... and then disable the firewall (ISPConfig 3 comes with its own firewall):

Click on Install to start the installation process:

Confirm that you want to start the installation:

The installer formats the hard disk, installs the software packages and prepares the system configuration for the first boot:

After the basic installation is finished, the system will do an automatic reboot.

The automatic configuration starts right after the system has rebooted:

Now log in with the username root and the password that you selected during the installation.

  rpm -ivh

You know a step-by-step to find the installs and what to do with each would be beneficial. Having to install through steps or a script that is dated is more trouble than it's worth: 

rpm -ivh

Very great job. One of the first time I can follow a tutorial on a web site step by step and had everything fine.

Just one little problem when starting postfix. There where some references to IPV6 adresses inside my /etc/hosts file and postifx refused to start.

Many thanks to you and congratulation for the job.

Thank you. I have followed the steps and been successful with the install.

A few of the packages referred have changed versions on the suse sites but that was easy to update.

Otherwise  and amazingly accurate list of steps to get a successfull install.

Now... back to verifying the features
