Upgrading now. Thanks for the very quick response, Till. I'm not sure if you guys could use it, but I'll keep you updated as to whether or not it works smoothly on the PPC architecture. From the looks of it, the core issues that I remember and have documented have been addressed.

Update: Everything looks to be functioning well. No complaints as of yet Way to go ISPC team.

Boys and Girls... I'm still on the 'old' 2.1.2 version, and I must say that it's really working nice!

I'm about to start adding more sites and clients to the system, but I'm not sure if I should do this before I've updated to the new 2.2.0 version as the update might 'break' things, with the result of installing everything over again.

My question.. Is the update really needed, and is the 2.2.0 the final version, or is it still in 'beta' testing?

If I do the update, I should make a restorable ISPConfig backup... Whats the best way of doing this? I've only got root SSH access to the server (Fedora RC4).

It's a final version; if it was a beta, we would have marked it as such.

Make a backup of /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig:
Code:
cd /root
tar -pczf root.tar.gz ispconfig/
cd /home
tar -pczf home.tar.gz admispconfig/
Also make an SQL dump of the ISPConfig database:

Okay.. I'm about to update /!\
How do I (if needed) un 'gz' the file root.tar.gz, and home.tar.gz.
And will all the file be CHMOD and CHOWN'ed the way it needs to be after restoring the old files?

I'm only asking for just in case!

The tar option "p" stands for preserve permissions.

To unpack the files:

Code:
cd /root
tar -xfz root.tar.gz
cd /home
tar -xfz home.tar.gz

Guess what..

The upgrade did not go 100% ok

I used to access ISPconfig with my_ip:81.
After the update I could only access some parts of it this way.
It was the same with www.mydomainname.com:81 and mydomainname.com:81..

One of the problems was that I could not access any thing in the Management > Server part (I got an error: "The page cannot be displayed")

Also.. On all pages showing the 'ISP Server Status' the 'nav_lft.gif' and 'nav_rgt.gif' were missing. (see image)




The problems was that host.mydomainname.com was not resolving! (it never did, as I did not set it up to do so)

After adding an 'A Record' for 'host' in the DNS to make host.mydomainname.com resolve to the server IP, all was working fine again.

I can now access ISPconfig with host.mydomainname.com:81 and access the Management > Server (images are also shown) HOWEVER my_ip:81, mydomainname.com:81 and www.mydomainname.com:81 will still not let me access the 'Management > Server' part.. When I try to do this, it will kick me to the loginpage on host.mydomainname.com

I guess that this is all correct as the hostname of the server is: host, and the Domainname is: mydomainame.com
I'm still not sure why I did not have this problem the 'old' ISPconfig setup.

Question... Can I change the 'host' name in ISPconfig to 'www' to make ISPconfig accessable again with only www.mydomainname.com:81 ? (I'm used to this now)

Thanks again for all the help.. and a big thank you to the ISPConfig team.. Your product looks great!
