ISP-Server Setup - Ubuntu 5.0.4 "The Hoary Hedgehog" - Page 5



apt-get install apache2 apache2-common apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libapr0 libexpat1 ssl-cert (1 line!)
apt-get install autoconf automake1.4 autotools-dev libapache2-mod-php4 libkrb53 php4 php4-common php4-dev php4-imagick php4-mcrypt php4-rrdtool php4-sqlite php4-curl php4-domxml php4-gd php4-imap php4-ldap php4-mcal php4-mhash php4-mysql php4-odbc php4-pear php4-xslt
(1 line!)

Edit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf. Change

DirectoryIndex index.html index.cgi index.php index.xhtml


DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.cgi index.php index.php3 index.xhtml

Edit /etc/mime.types and comment out the following lines:

#application/x-httpd-php                                phtml pht php
#application/x-httpd-php-source phps
#application/x-httpd-php3 php3
#application/x-httpd-php3-preprocessed php3p
#application/x-httpd-php4 php4

Edit /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php4.conf and comment out the following lines:

<IfModule mod_php4.c>
# AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3
# AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Edit /etc/apache2/ports.conf and add Listen 443:

Listen 80
Listen 443

Now we have to enable some Apache modules (SSL, rewrite and suexec):

cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/ssl.conf ssl.conf
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/ssl.load ssl.load
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/rewrite.load rewrite.load
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/suexec.load suexec.load
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/include.load include.load

Restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart


apt-get install proftpd proftpd-common ucf

<- standalone

For security reasons you can add the following lines to /etc/proftpd.conf (thanks to Reinaldo Carvalho; more information can be found here:

DefaultRoot ~
IdentLookups off
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."

and restart Proftpd:

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart


apt-get install libfreetype6 libgd2-noxpm libjpeg62 libpng12-0 webalizer

Synchronize the System Clock

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

apt-get install ntpdate
/etc/init.d/ntpdate start

The system startup links for /etc/init.d/ntpdate should already exist so that ntpdate starts automatically at boot time; if it does not, run

update-rc.d ntpdate defaults

to create these links.

Then add the following lines to /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root (if the file does not exist, create it by running

touch /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root):

# update time with ntp server
0 */2 * * * /etc/init.d/ntpdate restart &> /dev/null

Then run

chmod 600 /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root
/etc/init.d/cron restart

Install some Perl Modules needed by SpamAssassin (comes with ISPConfig)

apt-get install libhtml-parser-perl libdb-file-lock-perl libnet-dns-perl

On To The Next Step...

The configuration of the server is now finished, and we go on by installing ISPConfig on it.

Bad bad bad!:
0 */2 * * * /etc/init.d/ntpdate restart

Please use an ntp daemon.

And if you are already on it use 'crontab -e' to modify cronjobs instead of digging through the file system. You get syntax highlighting and it checks and installs the new cronjob for you afterwards.
