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.

The docuument refers to the installation of Ruby, while this is actually not documented.

OpenSuse 12.2 is not able to compile mod_ruby successfully (neither is the latest fedora actually) and no solution has been found.


Please remove the reference to Ruby from the document and place a warning in the document that this OS cannot be configured to use Ruby as a module inside ISPConfig 3.0.46!

I have the OpenSuse 12.1 x86_64 installed in a VMWare Workstation 9 machine. 2CPUs, 2 Cores and 3GB RAM allocated to the machine. 

So far so good until the fstab modification. I always end up with error:

mount: /etc/fstab: parse error: ignore entry at line 3.
mount: /etc/fstab: parse error: ignore entry at line 4.

I only tried the / partition first. Here is my fstab:

osuse1:~ # cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda1 swap swap defaults  0 0
/dev/sda2 /  ext4 acl,user_xattr,usrjquota=aquota.user,,jqfmt=vfsv0 1 1
/dev/sda3 /srv ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0

Thanks for helping me find the problem.

You need to add postmaster_address = in protocol lda field, or else you will receive this error when sending mail: "Error reading configuration: Invalid settings: postmaster_address setting not given lda: Fatal: Internal error occurred. Refer to server log for more information."


vi /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

 protocol lda {

  mail_plugins = sieve quota

add this line here >  postmaster_address =
