    I have been testing out ISPConfig for a few days now and it's really great.
    The thing is that i need to be able to set up the system unattended with just 1-3 lines of code on a multi server set up all running everything. I had my eye on servisys' script.
    This script has most of what I am looking for except i cannot get multiserver to work (Debian 8) and you do get some prompts (which i do not mind answering as long I can pipe the answeres) but i need it to automatically connect to the master server. I would ideally be looking at a combination of the script mentioned above and the .ini which is already avilable to preconfigure the script. I also looked at ISPConfig kickstarter but there was no multiserver avilable.- Is there such an option avilable?

    Thanks in advance!

    Out of curiosity, how many servers and multiserver setups are you setting up?

    4 for the moment but I need it to be easily scalable. I need to be able to set up servers that connect to the master server as fast as possible.

    the automated script should be fine for single server. not sure about multi-server.
    you'll also need to configure some things (root access to the master db for [email protected](s) and [email protected](s) ) that may not be in the script.
    to be easily scalable, i think you'll have to take the automated script and modify it a bit for your own needs. you'll need different things on different servers, with maybe a variable number of servers. you may want to be able to run it to add eg another 3 webservers, and another 2 database servers to an existing multi-server system. i think you'll need to look at ansible/puppet/cloudformation etc to create a script more tailored to your own requirements. it'll take quite a bit or work, but once done, you can completely recreate your server environment with a single command line. or adjust (up/down) the number of a group of servers (web/db/mail) by changing the command line arguments to the same script.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I am going to try forcing some variables in the script and see if i can get it to work. I'll keep you updated!
