The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat (Ubuntu 10.10) [ISPConfig 2]

[ Thanks to Falko Timme for this link. ]

"This tutorial shows how to set up an Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat (Ubuntu 10.10) server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. In the end you should have a system that works reliably, and if you like you can install the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig 2 (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).

"I will use the following software:

* Web Server: Apache 2.2.16 with PHP 5.3.3, Python, Ruby, and WebDAV
* Database Server: MySQL 5.1.49
* Mail Server: Postfix
* DNS Server: BIND9
* FTP Server: proftpd
* POP3/IMAP: I will use Maildir format and therefore install Courier-POP3/Courier-IMAP.
* Webalizer for web site statistics

"Please note that this setup does not work for ISPConfig 3! It is valid for ISPConfig 2 only!"
