1.0 Introduction
In this Hands-on Labs session, we’re going to learn how to install and configure the Linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) server option when we then use to install ISPConfig hosting control panel. Canonical has high hopes that Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx, will easily become the platform of choice for anybody who intends to build and deploy large-scale infrastructure, whether you're trying to build the next Facebook, or the next Google, or the next eBay. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition: Lean, fast and powerful – Ubuntu Server delivers services reliably, predictably and economically - and easily integrates with your existing infrastructure. It has almost 100 open-source and proprietary application providers certifying their programs on Ubuntu Server Edition. Ubuntu 10.04 includes Alfresco, Ingres, IBM, VMware, Yahoo and Zimbra. It also includes improved installation and management tools for Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) and Amazon EC2.

ISPConfig is an open source hosting control panel for Linux. ISPConfig is licensed under BSD license. ISPConfig simplifies the complicated details of setting up DNS, multiple unique domain name websites on one physical server box, and e-mail accounts for multiple users on those websites.

ISPConfig provides interfaces for the management of internet services by an ISP provider and the ISP clients. That is, ISPConfig is an ISP management and hosting control panel. It manages your Web server, email server, BIND DNS, proftpd and vsftpd FTP server, MySQL databases, SpamAssassin, disk quotas and User registration & billing with an easy to use Web interface for administrators, resellers, and clients. Others services like Email management and forwarding, Security (via SSL), Mail scanning and Firewall); Statistics & ISP Management (Webalizer, IP-addresses); Self Management (Shell-access, Per-User Administration backend) and more.

As you’ll learn in this hands-on lab training, setting up ISPConfig is somewhat challenging, but it is much easier than coding DNS files by hand. ISPConfig can help new Linux users configure web and e-mail faster and easier than they could without it. This makes ISPconfig a "gateway to Linux" skills building endeavor. People get the end benefits of gaining experience to deploy complex servers while they continue to learn about them.

Solution:
In this Hands-on Lab session, you’ll learn how to setup virtual network on VMware (you may also use any other virtual machines like MS VirtualPC, Linux Xen, or VirtualBox from Oracle). In this lab session, we’ll concentrate on installing ISPConfig on a clean install Linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server. You will learn how to install and configure Webmin to help with configuring DNS server. I’ll also show you how set static IP address which is required for deploying a DNS server. Finally, we’ll go through a step-by-step process to install all the pre-requisite packages that are necessary for successful installing of ISPConfig hosting solution. You’ll also have opportunity to do some assignment at the end of the lab session. Upon completion of the hands-on lab you would have gained a competency level and a capability to be able to plan design implement and deploy a hosting solution using ISPConfig and any other Ubuntu server powered application. Once you gained enough experience and capability you may go ahead and install ISPConfig on a Pilot testing server and finally to a production server to power on your ISP venture.
