View a list of features

  • Name - name of the feature.
  • Status - current status of the feature:
    • P-onn.png - the selected feature is active.
    • P-off.png - the selected feature is not active.

The feature is considered active, if the "key" software that implements this feature, is installed on the server. For example, the feature "Web-server" is considered active, if Apache and/or nginx is installed. The feature can also include mandatory software that is installed on the server, but the feature will be considered active even if the "key" software is not installed.

  • Installed - list of software that implements this feature.
  • Type - feature type (recommended, required, etc.)

Settings

To configure a feature, select it on the list and click "Edit". In the form that will open you will see the services associated with the selected feature.

For example, the edit form for "Web-server" looks like this:

Module «Features»

If the feature is active, on the form the recommended software (not the one installed on the server) will be selected. The software that is already installed on the server will display in the field "Installed".

If other software is already installed, in the "Configure feature" form both recommended and installed software will be selected.

If the feature is active ("key" software is already installed), only installed software will be selected on the edit form.

Clicking the button Apply changes will adjust the installed and recommended software. I.e. the software that was not installed, will be installed, the one that is already installed, but was unselected, will be deleted.

Software is installed from the OS repository (the ISPsystem repository must be connected). For example, nginx (CentOS) will be installed with the command yum install ispmanager-pkg-nginx
