ISPconfig 3 r1 to r2 upgrade failed
I run a Debian 4 system. Ran the upgrade. It choked on the finish of the script when apache2 was restarted. It could not find FCGIWrapper starter script in /var

I had to restore from backup to back out.

My scroll back was not long enough, but it was this file: .php-fcgi-starter

You have to choose "yes" when the updater asks if you want to reconfigure the services. Also make sure that mod_php is installed as it is used for the controlpanel.

Those were enabled.

I had did what you said. I basically did defaults and yes.

What I noticed what was different between then R1 and R2



FCGIWrapper /var/www/php-fcgi-scripts/ispconfig/php-fcgi-starter .php


FCGIWrapper /var/www/php-fcgi-scripts/ispconfig/.php-fcgi-starter .php

My Apache choked on the latter.

Also, I don't have /var/www/ispconfig directory.

I had the same problems with the update.

jcombs_31 20th February 2009 03:39

Any news on this?

till 20th February 2009 09:26

have you instellad and enabled mod_php? If not, please do it now.

mod_php is installed. It has been installed since I installed RC1. This means that it installed for the upgrade to

Against better judgment, I did a upgrade try again. I also did a script of the session. This should show the failed part. I basically had to restore ISPConfig RC1 from backup.
