    Create a server side ISPConfig plugin wich attaches itself to the website insert even that copies the nescessary files when a site gets created.

    Find an ISPConfig developer and pay him/her to do the modification for you.

    It's not that easy to explain that in a few words, can you code in PHP?

    Hello, I'm also interested in such a plugin.
    Although I'm not a PHP ninja, I have some experience deploying / customizing open source PHP solutions and also have done some Laravel development by myself.
    I am currently looking for information regarding ISPConfig plugin development, but couldn't find much until now. I reviewed the ISPConfig User Manual, but didn't seem to find anything relevant to ISPConfig plugin/modules development (did I miss it ?).
    Could you please tell me where to look in order to start learning about plugin development ?

    That could also be a possibility, could someone tell me where to reach for those developers and what budget it could represent to develop the kind of plugin @ed123 is talking about ?

    Thank you very much.

    Existing plugins are in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-available/, so certainly refer to those. I don't know about documentation offhand, I've never tried to create one.

    Ok, so let's give it a try :)

    Create a new file /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-available/

    which contains this code:

    class x_custom_apache2_plugin {
        var $plugin_name = 'x_custom_apache2_plugin';
        var $class_name = 'x_custom_apache2_plugin';
        //* This function is called during ispconfig installation to determine
        //  if a symlink shall be created for this plugin.
        function onInstall() {
            global $conf;
            if($conf['services']['web'] == true) {
                return true;
            } else {
                return false;
             This function is called when the plugin is loaded
        function onLoad() {
            global $app;
            Register for the events
            $app->plugins->registerEvent('web_domain_insert', $this->plugin_name, 'insert');
        function insert($event_name, $data) {
            global $app, $conf;
            // do something here
    Add your custom code in at "// do something here". You get all fields from web domain table incl. the paths in the array $data['new'], so e.g. the domain name is $data['new']['domain']

    Then activate the plugin by creating a symlink /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-enabled/ that points to /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-available/

    Thank you both @Jesse Norell and @till...
    The given skeleton and explanation, along with an exploration of the files present under /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-available/, should at least allow me to start to understand the mechanics of ISPConfig's plugins.
    I'll probably soon be back on this forum with more questions I guess ;)

    Thank you for pointing me in the correct direction.
