Default CENTOS 5.2 and ISPConfig 2.2.25 BIG problem

Greetings to all,

i have recently updated my ispconfig from ISPConfig 2.2.24 to ISPConfig 2.2.25 on my CENTOS 5.2 (updated from 5) . Everything was fine till a server restart. Apparently the whole ispconfig folder under root was miraculously deleted ! I can not start my httpd and i get this error :

unable to start piped log program '/root/ispconfig/cronolog --symlink=/var/log/httpd/ispconfig_access_log /var/log/httpd/ispconfig_access_log_%Y_%m_%d': Permission denied
Unable to open logs

I am glad that this happened on the test server (although running important things) but why did it do that ???

Regards,

Leonidas

1) Any errors during the update?

Please post the output of:

ls -la /root/ispconfig/

Thanks for the reply.

I did not receive any errors during the update. The problem is that the folder /root/ispconfig/ was completely removed without me doing anything. Really weird. I don't understand how could this happen.

I reinstalled version ISPConfig 2.2.25 and everything seems ok now. Fortunately it did not overwrite my previous database and configuration files.

I am wondering about an attack to my system ( but would it be logical to remove ispconfig ?) What is the best tool to tracert unauthorized access ?

Regards,

Leonidas

This happens if the update did not finish due to a problem when the binaries are compiled.

Instead of reinstalling, you should have run:

mkdir /root/ispconfig

before you run the installer again, as it might be that you database is not up to date yet. If you encounter any problems in the ispconfig interface, e.g. a missing checkbox for the databases, you will have to run the update again.

No, this was caused due to a failure during update like running out of space or a interruption like closing the ssh connection while the script runs.

that's good to hear. Although the previous update was completed fine. I think that at the end it started ispconfig again.

In anycase i will run the update again as you suggested.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Best Regards,

Leonidas
