    Hi everyone,
    I installed ISPC on a Raspberry PI 3 and everythings worked ok until I restarted the RPI.
    Dhcpcd refused to start. After invetigating, I descovered that ISPC wrote in /etc/network/interfaces the configurations for server as eth0 and another two interfaces eth0:x for 2 domains that I added.
    I must specify I use dhcpd for my wlan0 that is configured as Access Point for my other devices. If I don't, no problem, disable dhcpcd and everythings works ok.
    So, in Debian 9 and derivated distributions which use dhcpcd, the ISPC script must write the config of networks in /etc/dhcpcd.conf, of course, as static configuration.
    The question is what is the solution for situations like that ?

    By default, ISPConfig is not writing to /etc/network/interfaces at all. You must have activated the network configuration manually. If you use a custom network configuration which is not compatible with the way that ISPConfig writes the file, just leave network configuration disabled and configure the network config file manually to suit your needs.
