parent 2aa041a9
# It is recommended to use a clean (fresh) Debian lenny install where you just selected "Standard System" as the package selection during
# setup. Then follow the steps below to setup your server with ISPConfig 3. In this guide "vi" is used as texteditor, but you ofcourse
# you can use whatever you prefer. You should be root for doing all of this.
# Check we have Fully Qualified Domain Name
# it should return something like ""
# if not, then we assign a hostname (for example ispconfig):
echo > /etc/hostname
vi /etc/hosts
# and add lines similar but appropriate: localhost.localdomain localhost ispconfig
# Run:
# Some optional choices
opt0.1) Optionally install SSH-server to get remote shell
apt-get install ssh openssh-server
opt0.2) Optionally if you are not running in virtual machine you can set server clocksync via NTP. Virtual quests get this from the host.
apt-get -y install ntp ntpdate
opt0.3) Optionally if you want vi editor improvement
apt-get -y install vim-nox
# Next is the real deal
1) Install Postfix, Dovecot, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, rkhunter, binutils with the following command line (on one line!):
apt-get -y install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d
# Answer the questions from the package manager as follows.
Create directories for web-based administration ? <-- No
General type of configuration? <-- Internet site
Mail name? <-- server1.mydomain.tld
SSL certificate required <-- Ok
# ...use your own domain name of course ;)
# Edit the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf
vi /etc/mysql/my.cnf
# and change the line:
bind-address =
#bind-address =
# then restart mysql
/etc/init.d/mysql restart
2) Install Amavisd-new, Spamassassin and Clamav (1 line!):
apt-get -y install amavisd-new spamassassin clamav clamav-daemon zoo unzip bzip2 arj nomarch lzop cabextract apt-listchanges libnet-ldap-perl libauthen-sasl-perl clamav-docs daemon libio-string-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl libnet-ident-perl zip libnet-dns-perl
3) Install apache, PHP5, phpmyadmin, better fastCGI, suexec, Pear and mcrypt (1 line!):

# When phpMyAdmin is asking weather to configure itself automatically, select "Apache2"
# Then run the following to enable the Apache modules suexec, rewrite and ssl:
a2enmod suexec rewrite ssl actions include
# restart apache before continuing
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
4) Install pure-ftpd and quota
apt-get -y install pure-ftpd-common pure-ftpd-mysql quota quotatool

echo 1 > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/TLS
mkdir -p /etc/ssl/private/
openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
chmod 600 /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
# Edit /etc/fstab. Mine looks like this (I added ,usrquota,grpquota to the partition with the mount point /):
vi /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 / ext3 errors=remount-ro,usrquota,grpquota 0 1
/dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

cd jailkit-2.11
./debian/rules binary
cd ..
dpkg -i jailkit_2.11-1_*.deb
rm -rf jailkit-2.11*
8) Install fail2ban (optional but recomended, because the monitor tries to show the log)
More info at:
apt-get install fail2ban
9) Install ISPConfig 3
cd /tmp
tar xvfz ISPConfig-3.0.2.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3_install/install/
# Now start the installation process by executing:
php -q install.php
# The installer will configure all services like postfix, sasl, courier, etc. for you. A manual setup as required for ISPConfig 2 (perfect setup guides) is not nescessary. To login to the ISPConfig controlpanel, open the following URL in your browser (replace the IP to match your settings!):
# the default login is:
user: admin
password: admin
# In case you get a permission denied error from apache, please restart the apache webserver process.
Install a webbased Email Client
apt-get install squirrelmail
ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail
Access squirrelmail:
To configure squirrelmail, run:
debian 5.0 under openvz:
vzctl set $VPSID --capability ${CAP}:on --save
Optional recommended packages:
denyhosts - a utility to help sys admins thwart ssh crackers
rsync - fast remote file copy program (for backup)
Ispc log files rotate, for now manual add but to add in ispc installer:
/var/log/ispconfig/ispconfig.log {
rotate 4
/var/log/ispconfig/cron.log {
rotate 4
Possible errors and their solutions
pureftpd login does not work. Take a look at the syslog, if you find an error message like this:
Mar 24 16:26:28 ispconfig pure-ftpd: (?@?) [ERROR] Sorry, invalid address given
then pureftpd is not able to resolve the hostname. Name resolving can be disabled with these commands:
echo 'yes' > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/DontResolve
/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart
