Default Correct update procedure ispconfig + ubuntu?

What is the correct update procedure for ubuntu and ispconfig3? I found a howto FAQ to update ispconfig separately, but I am concerned that if I just run the standard ubuntu update, it may update parts of ispconfig3 incorrectly and break something. Should I run one and then the other ... any particular order? How do I update safely to ensure both the OS and ispconfig system up to date for security? Thanks.

Follow this procedure..... http://www.faqforge.com/linux/contro...e-ispconfig-3/


I think you should backup first and after the update.

PS: if your server is virtual .... you can make a snapshot.

Yes, that is the ispconfig update faq I found, but what about the ubuntu update? Does the ispconfig update also run the ubuntu update? I want to make sure the rest of the server has all of its security patches too.

Does the ispconfig update also run the ubuntu update? The faq does not mention it.

I have found 2 versions of commands to update ubuntu:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

or maybe:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Also, as an aside if you know, I'm trying to figure out the differences between in the last command line of just "upgrade" vs "dist-upgrade"

No, that procedure will not triger also the update of ubuntu.

sudo apt-get update - command for check the latest ubuntu packages available for your distro

But try the commands and see what will happen - nothing will be done witout your permision.

So if you wnat to be very cautious - make the backup exactly from the procedure, update your distro and then the ISPConfig's.

From my experience - i've made the update to Ubuntu without backup and nothing worse happen. (my server is virtual machine - so i took a snapshot before).

Thanks,

Mine is also virtual, so I will be making a snapshot!

So the correct procedure is ...

1. Snapshot.
2. Update Ubuntu (hope it doesn't do something bad to ISPConfig's packages).
3. Update ISPConfig (hope that if the Ubuntu update did anything bad to ISPConfig that this fixes it).

I hate to say it, but my concern dates to the bad old days of applying a service pack to WinNT, where the service pack was likely to step on and break driver patches, so you had to do it in the right order and go back and re-fix stuff after applying it. I was worried that the Ubuntu update might patch the packages ISPConfig uses to versions that ISPConfig didn't like.

Thanks again!
