  • Current information on last backup is displayed on the top, e.g.2.12.2015 - Backup Completed Successfully
  • Server backups: recommended settings are: Full backup = Weekly, and Count of system backup archives = 3 (at least). Following each successful backup, an email is sent to system email address as specified in Settings Syst. settings General, ID admin_email
  • Router backups: All routers are text-backed up, Mikrotik-type routers can also be backed up in binary format
  • Storing in FTP: it is highly recommended to store backups elsewhere. We also recommend to turn on Secure FTP for encrypted transmission of backups


2.1 Change of default passwords after installation

  • root password to SSH
  • user password for root and ispadmin to the database (if you keep default password, ISPadmin displays a warning after login)

2.2 backup encryption

  • If not set, ISPadmin displays a warning after login along with an instruction how to set it up ( /usr/local/script/ispadmin/ )


  • Do not install third-party SW, if possible
  • Install ISPadmin on inner network behind outer firewall which filters incoming communication (SSH)
