Technical details (manual setup)

Advanced users may install and customize their software manually, for example, if they install the panel on a non-supported operating system.

BILLmanager uses Apache that supports SSL (mod_ssl) to gain access through https, and MySQL-server (version 5.0 and later ) with InnoDB support enabled for data storage.

  • To configure Apache, add the following line into the Apache configuration file:
Include /usr/local/ispmgr/etc/

and add the symlink into the /usr/local/ispmgr/lib/apache directory to the module of the corresponding version. Note: your Apache server must work through https.

  • To run MySQL, in the configuration file (/usr/local/ispmgr/etc/billmgr.conf) specify the database access parameters:
DBHost <hostname>  //  localhost by default
DBName <name>      // database name, billmgr by default.
// Make sure the database is created, or the user has enough access permissions to create it 
DBUser <user>      // username to connect to the database, root by default
DBPassword <pass>  // <user> password
DBSocket <socket>  // path to the mysql UNIX socket, blank by default
FromEmail  // address that is used in the field from
  • Execute the following command to provide the admin password:
/usr/local/ispmgr/sbin/mgrctl -m billmgr usrparam passwd=<password> recordlimit=100 sok=ok
  • You can now set up BILLmanager from the web-interface
User name: admin
Password: <pass>
