Yes, slave servers should be updated first.

Thanks a lot for this new version!

CentOS 5.5 update without any problems, but log shows amavis error:

DKIM signature verification disabled, corresponding features not available. If not intentional, consider enabling it by setting: $enable_dkim_verification to 1, or explicitly disable it by setting it to 0 to quench down this warning.
same info after reboot system.

I upgraded from version and I can not send or receive emails.

Webmin shows me the following error:
postfix: fatal: bad string length 0 <1: myhostname =

How can I fix this?

When I try to update on my slave server it sais:


Possible problem with dumping the database. We will stop here. Please check the file existing_db.sqlroot@backup
What can be the reason for this?

till 27th June 2010 19:54

ISPConfig has a security mechanism that stops the update in case that the dumped sql database is too small to prevent that the update fauls due to problems with the databse dump. But sometimes this routines is wrong, e.g. if you have fery few records on the slave server.

Please check the file existing_db.sql which has been created in the install folder during the ispconfig update if it seems to contain all data records that you would expect on the server, or if it contains nothing or just a error message.

I tried to locate the existing_db.sql file but it doesnt exist?
