ISPMan Debian Packages

Today the ./debian dir on the cvs was nearly completely replaced. To create .debs from after a cvs checkout simply enter the ./debian dir and use dpkg-buildpackage. The resulting .debs are versioned 1.3-2 by now. Thanks to Tim Peeler for the initial work on 1.3-1!
We'll provide ready-made .debs and a Debian repository soon, meanwhile you could use one mentioned here: read more

A new approach to a customer panel / alpha release available

s0undt3ch was so kind to create a new customer panel from groud up. As he is a Python fan, the new panel is written in Python and makes use of a perl-in-phyton wrapper, to access the ISPMan perl modules. The panel is a state of the art web application as it uses AJAX.

You can have a look at some screenshots or you can test the real thing.

Important Notice

Sourceforge changed the DNS address of the cvs servers. The DNS
name was for every project until they changed that
to individual DNS names on a per project basis. So for ISPMan you have to choose

If you have an already installed source directory you wish to update to
cvs, you have to change the name like this:

# find . -type f -name Root -print0 | xargs -0 perl -pi -e 's/cvs\.sourceforge/ispman\.cvs\.sourceforge/'... read more

ISPMan 1.3 in sight

After hunting down tons of small bugs we even started to implement new features. Therefore we decided to publish a release candidate 2, before ISPMan 1.3 will come out.

Some highlights:
- SPF support in the DNS setup: Support for that new spam-protection system
- Cyrus virtual domain support: POP/IMAP logins in the form of user@domain.tld instead of user_domain_tld
- AWStats support: New form of weblog/stats visualisation
- Improved support of shell tools: You can do everything from the commandline if you like (GUIs are for wimps :))

User aghaffar logs in to runs the proxy software and requests the LDAP server for maildrophost attribute for uid=aghaffar and either redirects to that server or sends commands to that server on user's behalf.... read more
