    I'm new at using ISPConfig, I still have a server running with CPanel.

    I was thinking about migrating my CPanel server to a ISPConfig server.
    There are 2 things that crossed my mind after testing ISPConfig

    • If I create a new web account on the CPanel server de document structure is
      /home/<username>/www ---> public_html

      In ISPConfig the document structure is
      /var/www/www.domain.com ---> web1

    • If a client creates a database the naming of the database with CPanel can be done by the client, the user naming as well.

      The naming of a database in CPanel is like this.

    Is it possible to change these settings in ISPConfig so migrating from CPanel to ISPConfig can be maid possible easier?

    Kind Regards

    • This can not be changed in ISPConfig without rewriting large parts of the sourcecode. In ISPConfig every customer can have more then one website, thats why a scheme based on the user wont work.

    This cant be changed in the interface, but it might be easier to change this in the sources.

    I'm now trying to name the database names.

    I've created a site which doc_id = 2;
    But how can I select the username of the site from the database?

    Do you know the query which selects the username only knowing the site's doc_id?

    Thanks in advance

    i've looked into the post you referred to

    but with the query in that thread you use isp_isp_user.username

    what i need is sys_user.username

    Have a look at isp_isp_kunde.webadmin_user. That's the username that is also in sys_user.

    This is my first post on howtoforge! Love you guys!! Anyway, thought I would contribute since I have benefited a lot from ISP config. If you want to convert to ISPconfig from cPanel here are a few steps to keep in mind. Here are the steps.
    • SSH Into Terminal
    • Access public_html
    • Get Database Password and User-name From Config File
      • Export Database to public_html Folder
    • Zip All Your Files At One Time
    • ISP Config Client Tab
    • Add Website in ISP Config
    • Set Up Shell User in ISP Config
    • SSH into New Server
    • Transfer Files to New Server And Unzip Them
    • Create and Import the Database
    • Edit the Config File
    • Point Website To New Server
    This is based upon WordPress sites but the work is all the same. I wrote a complete step by step tutorial here.

    I also have video instructions in there.
    I hope this helps someone.
