Nice beginning of the New year.
I'll be updating my servers later today.

Thank you.

Weird, tried updating my setup using and also manually and version is still under Help > Version...

Please logout and then login agian. The version number is cached in the user session.

Done this several times, tried 3 different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome)... Still no go.

You are right, there was a wrong version number in one of the config files in the tar.gz. I've just uploaded a new tar.gz with correct the version number. You can either ignore the wrong version number or change it manually in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/ and /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/ The version number has no influence on how the system works.

Why does updating ISPconfig always change my from postfix?

Why does updating ISPconfig always change my from postfix?
ISPConfig changes the configuration of services only when you select "y" for the question "Reconfigure services" during update. If you select no, then no config files will be changed.

In case that you decide that ispconfig shall not update your config files, it might be that new features introduced in ispconfig will not work on your server until you manually change the config files or that bug fixes that need a config file change will not work until you manually apply the fix.

So its totally up to you if you want to go the easy route and let ispconfig reconfigure the system or you want to do the reconfiguration manually.

Understood, but I was not aware that it did this also with the postfix config files.

Ben 7th January 2011 11:52

Would it make sense to implement a feature like apt(itude) in debian has, when updating a package where a config file has changed, to display changes between the current version and the new one?
This would make things easier to either manually add changes from ispconfig or to readd the own changes.
