I'm trying to package[1] ispCP Omega[2], which ships some software already
available in Debian such as libphp-adodb, phpmyadmin, squirrelmail, etc.

I've encountered many problems because it is not a straight-forward thing to

And with the current way phpmyadmin is packaged it is not possible to just
make it use a different config file. Also, symlinking parts of phpmyadmin
