Default Question on Ubuntu distro Upgrade

Hi guys, I have asked again about this but haven't received any reply.

Has anyone who had ISPConfig 3 on Ubuntu 9.04 upgraded his distro to Ubuntu 9.10 from apt succesfully without breaking the current ISPconfig configuration.

I have spent a lot of months setting my server up taking care every detail. I also have quite a few users hosted on the server, some of them companies which cannot cope with any server failures even for a whole day.

So please if anyone has done it or knows for sure if there are any issues regarding the stuff I described above please let me know.

Thanks again

There could be a problem with courier and maildrop (see http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-3-p4 ). I don't know if this has been fixed by the package maintainers in the meantime. If you want to go sure that the upgrade works, I'd try this on a test virtual machine first.

Have you done any testing of this yet? I am also interested

I found a problem with another package and they say it is fixed in karmic koala... so I trialled the dist-upgrade and it said it wants to upgrade maildrop (that is the ONLY package it needs to upgrade)

BUT, I know maildrop is broken in the current release (at least, not compatible with the current implementation of ispconfig?)... basically when maildrop gets upgraded no mail can be delivered to mailbox as maildrop will fail

I was wondering if I did the dist-upgrade, then manually downgraded and held maildrop again (like i have now), would it still classify my dist as karmic? Or would I simply not be able to downgrade maildrop anymore?

aptitude dist-upgrade
aptitude install maildrop=2.0.4-3
aptitude hold maildrop
