The (Almost) Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1) On A Strato Dedicated-Server (With ISPConfig)
Based and abuttet to the HowTo - The Perfect Setup Debian Sarge (3.1) - of Falko Timme I wrote this HowTo for STRATO-Server, because Strato has some specifics in it´s Debian Sarge (3.1) - Image.
Let me say first: This is one way of many possible, but I try this more than one time and it works.
Anyway I must say to you, too => If you use this HowTo you do it on your own risk ! You will lose all Files on the Strato-Server, ´cause we start with a brandnew installation of the Debian-Image ! If you have question mail me or send me a PM.
If you want to have it in german language please mail me, too.
Wer diese Anleitung auf deutsch haben möchte, muss mir nur eine eMail oder PN schreiben.
You will need:
- a Strato - Dedicatet Server
- WinSCP3 and Putty or similar software on your computer at home
We use (based on the HowTo by Falko Timme) for the Server:
- Apache 2 as web-server
- Postfix as mailserver
- Courier-POP3 and Courier-IMAP for eMail, too
- BIND as DNS-server
- proftpd as FTP-server
- Webalizer for statistics
STEP 1 - Install a new Debian-Image 3.1 with the Strato-Konfigurationsmenü
- choose Serverkonfiguration
- choose Neuinstallation
- mark the Box and choose Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 für Profis
- click on weiter
- fill in the code you will see
You will lose all Files on the Strato-Server,
´cause we start with a brandnew installation of the Debian-Image !
- if you´re sure that you want it, click on weiter
- wait until you get the eMail from Strato that the reinstallation is finished.
STEP 2 - Update the Debian Sarge Image
- login your server as root by Putty
- copy here the code and paste it in Putty
- follow the instructions
If you´re asked that you want to stop now, ´cause a new kernel will be installed answer with no.
But don´t forget to reboot your server after this upgrade.
(If someone said, that this is to much update and -grade, let me first answer:
I try it many times and it works everytime a little bit other - and rather one time often than one time too little.)
STEP 3 - Add some more nameservers
- open and edit the file /etc/resolv.conf
- add some more nameservers (only if you want)
nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199 search serverkompetenz.net nameserver ip.number.from.another
STEP 4 - Setting the hostname
Instead of server1.example.com put in your real serverdomain (h12345.serverkompetenz.net)
echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname /bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
STEP 5 - Install needed and missing software and remove unneeded software
apt-get install make gcc g++ cpp wget flex bzip2 rdate fetchmail libdb3++-dev unzip zip ncftp xlispstat libarchive-zip-perl zlib1g-dev libpopt-dev nmap openssl lynx fileutils (all in one line!)

Answer the question with no.
- open and edit the file /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # file system mount point type options dump pass /dev/sda1 /boot ext2 nosuid,nodev 0 2 /dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro,usrquota,grpquota 0 1 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
