ISP-Server Setup - Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"

Filed under
HowTos

This is a detailed description about the steps to be taken to setup a Ubuntu based server (Ubuntu 5.10 - Breezy Badger) that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs, Quota, Firewall, etc.).

I will use the following software:

  • Web Server: Apache 2.0.x

  • Mail Server: Postfix (easier to configure than sendmail; has a shorter history of security holes than sendmail)
  • DNS Server: BIND9
  • FTP Server: proftpd
  • POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs: in this example you can choose between the traditional UNIX mailbox format (we then use ipopd/uw-imapd) or the
  • Maildir format (in this case we will use
  • Courier-POP3/Courier-IMAP).

  • Webalizer for web site statistics

In the end you should have a system that works reliably and is ready for the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).
