We are finally ready to install the actual ISPConfig software.
We can do that by downloading the latest stable version onto our server. As of this writing, the latest stable version that has a direct link available is version 3. We will update the installation once we get everything installed.
Now, you should change to your home directory and download the project using
cd ~ wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ispconfig/ISPConfig-126.96.36.199p5.tar.gz
After the download is complete, extract the directory structure and move into the
install subdirectory of the extracted folder structure:
tar xzvf ISPConfig-188.8.131.52p5.tar.gz cd ispconfig3_install/install/
Now, we are ready to install the software. Do so by typing:
You will be taken through a very lengthy installation processes.

Again, just press “ENTER” to use the defaults for each command.
