    Hey ...

    i have a CentOS 7 installation which i want to install ISPconfig on top.

    i just followed the install guide:

    it looks like epel repo is not required anymore, it holds only old php packages (5.3.3) while while centos repos already include 5.4.

    Does ISPconfig require epel repo?
    Did anyone successfully install ISPConfig on CentOS 7?

    Any hints apreciated! ...

    The guide you used is not working for centos 7.

    Yes. Epel was not used to install a different php version. Epel is still missing some required packages, especially pure-ftpd, so you cant install ispconfig on centos 7 yet and for that reason, we have not published a centos 7 install guide yet.

    No, off course you can compile it yourself. If epel does not deliver the package soon, then we will have to make a guide with manual compile instructions. But we try to avoid that as it makes updates complicated.

    Ib any case, if you have the choice to use a different Linux distribution, then better use one of the distributions that are recommended to be used iwth ISPConfig: Debian or Ubuntu. The resulting setup will be more stable and easier to update and maintain over the long run.

    Hey Till,

    just for the sake of information.
    Compiling packages makes no sense at all to me when it comes to updates.
    (just tested it)

    I think i go for ubuntu 14.04.

    So, if all works as expected i have a Master-Server (CentOS 6.5 with ISPconfig Panel) and 3 Ubuntu 14.04 Slaves.



    Thanks Till for all your help/work/support

    This should not be a problem, you can mix servers operating systems in a multiserver setup.

    Hey Till,

    Ubuntu 14.04 (ISPC, new installed slave) cuddles with CentOS 6.5 (ISPC master)

    It just works ... :)
    2 more Ubuntu Servers to come ... hopefully today ...

    Thank you!

    Thats why we recommend it. I've migrated a lot of customers from Centos to Debian and Ubuntu and they were all astonished that it can be so easy to maintain a server and keep it up to date :)
