    I have a Ubuntu server based on

    And Here's what I want to do, have a Primary server with everything, mysql, apache, emaisl etc..
    Is there a way I can setup a secondary server o my network and configure it as a mirror of the primary, copying Websiter Files, Mysql Database, emails ispconfig, etc.. everything...

    The reason I want to do this, is in case one server crashes, I have another with the same data, to put in its place..

    Thank you.

    Currently ispconfig supports only multi server setups with different servers, mirroring will be introduced in a future version. But you can mirror your server also without these ispconfig functions by using mysql replication and rsync.

    I'm going to try these options..
    MySQL Replacation for the DBs and rsync for web files.

    Now, can I use rsync to sync the postfix email account files??

    Yes, that should work. Or you use some kind of cluet file system for /var/vmail like Glusterfs (see falkos tutorials here on howtoforge).
