Ubuntu 13.04 APS Problem

I installed ISPConfig with the help of this tutorial.

One problem left: APS packages won't update or get populated at all.

Error code for every package available:


[INTERFACE]: APS crawler: Cannot read metadata from
Logfiles are not very helpful. 3 SimpleXML Warnings from PHP in lib/classes/ in Line 275:


$sxe = new SimpleXMLElement($xml);
But the XML gets generated.

The crawler is able to make directories in interface/web/sites/aps_meta_packages and places one file in every directory:

Example Directoryname: Zen
Filename in this directory: PKG_URL

Content of PKG_URL:
But no packages get downloaded, all MySQL Tables for aps_*, except settings, are empty. Debug log from ISPConfig doesn't deliver any further information. php5-curl and cURL are installed.

But something is missing! Can anyone help me?

Do you have a router or firewall in front of the server which might block access to so that the packages cant be downloaded?

MikeMcNuke 2nd May 2013 20:44


Firewall is installed on server, ufw with iptables. Server sits in some datahouse.

Also I tried a curl on and via ssh on the server.



and the data gets delivered to the shell.

Just turned off ufw and flushed iptables. But no difference.

Just digged a little deeper into

In the function public function startCrawler() it's able to fill the $apps_to_dl[] array with the correct information about Files.

But after this part of the function:


                // For memory reasons, unset the current vendor and his apps

it seems to stop doing anything. Strange. memorylimit is 512MB, so this should be sufficient. How can I trace the problem further???

Just did an update on a Ubuntu 12.10 Server from ISPConfig 3.0.5-rc2 to . APS did work on rc2, but now the same problem. Damn. There must be some config problem.

APS Problem
I'm having the same problem, but it's on Debian instead on Ubuntu (there aren't some differences).
Did you find a solution?
I tried to disable quota and some other stuffs, but I can't find a solution?
All downloads are working without any problem.
Best Regards

Until now no update on the problem.

Will install 2vms with ubuntu. One with older ispconfig one with new ispconfig. Perhaps I can find the error...

MikeMcNuke 4th May 2013 02:33

Problem fixed. I got back to my install files from ispconfig and ran the update script.

php -q update.php

Back in the frontend the APS packages get nowupdated and listed. But I don't know why. Did a backup of /etc before the update and compared all configs. No difference.

My Testinstalls on 2 VMs are also fully working.
