Default Update fail

Hi,

I tried to update ISPConfig 3 last night asking the web interface to do the job. I found this morning that the interface wasn't working, although the sites were working (i think that the cron jobs crashed). So I tried to update using the shell. When I type ispconfig_update.sh a copy of ISPConfig 3 is downloaded, a lot of files decompressed but the installation crashes saying:

>> Update

Operating System: Debian 6.0 (Squeeze/Sid) or compatible

PHP Notice: Undefined variable: conf in /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/update.php on line 76

If I try to update using php -q update.php I receive the same error. I tried to uninstall it but nothing happens.

Please, help!

Default Dind't work!

The failed upgrade caused problems with the mysqld deamon. Mysql was unable to load, so I ended up installing a new server with ISPConfig 3.0.3. I will never try to update it again. :-(

The ispconfig update does not change anything in the mysql configuration files,so if mysql failed to load, then this was caused by something else. Maybe you installed somelinux system updates too?

Beside that, why did you use the experimental update function in the interface (which is marked as use for your own risk) instead of using the recommended and mature shell update script as described in the update instructions and ispconfig release notes? The ispconfig update instructions also describe that you shall do a backup of several folders before you update so that you caould easily revert to the old version which you seemed to not have done.

Where does it says that 3.0.4 is an experimental release? My working copy of ISPConfig 3.0.3 make me know that there is an update and I proceed. Don't worry, lesson learned. Never update!

Not 3.0.4 is experimental, the interface update button is experimental.

Correct,and it forwarded you to the ispconfig page where the release notes are posted and these release notes instructed you to run:

ispconfig_update.sh

as root user on the shell.

Might be better: lesson lerned, read the update instructions before you update a software. Why do you think that we publish release notes which contain specific update instructions for every release? A server comtrol panel is a complex software with a lot of dependencies and we inform the users in the release notes on how to update to that release and what to obey when doing the update.
