    I runned for couple of days now, the 3.2 update, of ISPConfig. All was fine (previous version 3.1.15p3), my mono server installation is ok.
    But now in websites, i don't see the APS section anymore.
    Maybe this is related : in System section, Applications & Plugin the http://repo.ispconfig.org/addons/
    is active, but the list does not refresh at all.

    Has anyone had the same problem ? Any hints for solving appreciated,

    As noted in the release notes (https://www.ispconfig.org/blog/ispconfig-3-2-released/), we removed APS from ISPConfig because the project is dead.

    The System -> Applications & Plugin section is not related.

    It is possible to re-enable APS, by changing a setting in the database (in the table sys_ini -> config, change show_aps_menu=n to show_aps_menu=y). In 3.2.1, we will add a option to the UI where you can re-enable it. But APS will be completely removed in a future release.

    See https://git.ispconfig.org/ispconfig/ispconfig3/-/issues/5676 aswell.
    gilson, ffab and elmacus like this.

    Hi Th0m,
    thanks for the answer, seems i did'nt read the released notes carefully...
    I was able, according to your instructions to re-enable the APS section, by adding the config parameters !
    This will let some time to warn users before this feature disapear.

    See the APS menu. If there are no packages available, it is not possible. The repo to retrieve them from is dead.

    We are planning to create our own installer, but I can't make any promises. Without that, you will have to install it manually.

    I don't use nginx myself so I'm not sure, however, when looking up your error, I found this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions...-server-names-hash-you-should-increase-server

    o wow... in what time period is this going to be dropped entirely? I didn't use this, but my clients did.

    Also: i have 3.2.1 where can i find it in the UI?

    APS installer is dropped already. It is not in ISPConfig version 3.2.
    The APS project has been dead for some time. Year or two?

    You can activate the APS installer again under System > Interface > main config. But the APS project itself is dead, so there are no new packages anymore since 2019.

    My clients use it for the one click WP install and after just update the site through WP.
    I didn't know as i always install manually myself.

    Perhaps downsize the list to core things like WP, Joomla etc? i have no issue to maintain or setup a group that maintaince.

    APS is not our project so it's not possible for us to maintain/restart it. We are looking into a custom one click installer for a few apps.

    It would be helpful to have a modules that allow does allow the one click solution for popular third party products like Wordpress and others just for the time it saves doing manual installs, we'd even pay for it as an add-on

    Never liked APS.
    Because you could not setup your own installation packages.
    We should start with simple file based installer that can setup PageKit (CMS without database.)
    Just extract ZIP file and thats it.
