ISPConfig Beta released for testing
This is the beta version of the upcoming ISPConfig release. This is mainly a bugfix release.


Beside these changes the, the dns manager has now a input form for AAAA (ipv6) records.


Execute the following commands as root user on the shell:


cd /tmp
tar xfz ISPConfig-
cd ispconfig3_install/install/
php -q update.php

problems with updates

I applied the stable update from ispconfig 3 to 3.0.1 and everything seemed to go well, but I wasn't able to login as admin.

I just tried this beta update in the hope that it might fix things but got the following error:

Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/update.php on line 147

Thanks for any help,

Your problem has nothing to do with this beta update as your setup was broken before you installed the second update.

Your system is broken because you used a update from the stable series to update a svn version. as the svn release hads more and other database tables, you lost the database of course. svn versions can only be updated with svn versions and svn versions shall never be installed on a production system.

Can I fix the database by restoring from backup?
Thanks for your help. I tried restoring the dbispconfig database from the backup in the root directory and got the following error:

ERROR 1146 (42S02) at line 31: Table 'dbispconfig.billing_invoice' doesn't exist

Is there anything I can do to get back to where I was before I did the upgrade?

If there is no way to restore the database, how would I reinstall ispconfig? I followed the perfect server instructions exactly for ubuntu server 9.04 and ispconfig when I set it up originally. It was working fine until I did the update. I wasn't even aware of the svn vs stable issue.

Thank you for your help.

The backup contains the tables and not the data. you will have to create the tables from the exact version or svn revision that you had initially installed before you restore the data.

if you want to reinstall ispconfig, run the uninstall script before you install it again with the install script.

I had the same problem with lost login password
The question is, which update do we do so as to avoid loosing this password in the future?

Are these equal:


This gave me Version when I updated.


I have asked in the thread:

If it would be possible to give the Ultimate Upgrade Instructions for Live Sites so this does not happen again.

Can I reload ISPConfig 3 using the STABLE branch and avoid these problems in the future?

This has nothing to do with any update instructions and you never loose passwords or anything else if you use released versions of ispconfig. SVN versions are developer releases and if you use them you might loose all your data but this does not matter on dev machines as they are only for testing purposes.

So, as long as you use released versions, then you are on the save side. It does not matter if you install them trogh the update tool or manually.
