    I'm about 80% of the way through the document.

    Thus far, flawless. Perfect install.

    I was wondering if when done for security reasons the development tools can be pulled off the server.

    I'm using this to provide web hosting and in general lock the server down and remove as many potential treats after the install.

    I'm also using mod_security and port_sentry to harden the servers in production. Any interest in a supplmental installation procedure for hardening?

    Regards,

    Yes I would very much like a guide for this.

    Could you please also add in installation for roundcube too??

    Cheers,

    I completed the document and it went 100% perfect as far as I can tell.

    The server hardware pretty much melted down first boot after the install so I'm going to do it again once the server is ... well. ... working. I don't think the issue had anything to do with the procedure.

    I was wondering about something.

    If in fact squirrelmail works fine on Cento 6.0 with the perfect server, why does it seem to be next to impossible to get Perfect server, php 5.3 and squirrelmail to work together?

    Am I missing something?

    I REALLY need php 5.3 on my 5.6 Centos 64 bit server.

    It's working for me. What is the exact problem? Do you get any errors?

    The php-mcrypt was missing last time I tried the upgrade.

    Not having that would have broken ISPCONFIG 3 big time.

    So I went back to php 5.1.

    Is there a migration doc?

    I'm taking another look at this.

    Sadly I have no test bed for this. I have to mess with my main production box to try this.

    I will assume squirrelmail was broken by a missing package.

    I'm, taking a look at search lists from yum and may post a little later.

    php-mcrypt is probably provided by epel on 5.6 as it was on 6.0


    I'm feeling good.

    I want to try this again. Just pull the php 5.1 out and install all the ISPCONFIG necessary php53 packages?

    Ah, now I see that you are trying this on CentOS 5.6. I thought you were on 6.0. php53-mcrypt is a problem, I remember having problems with it myself, that's why I used PHP 5.1 in the CentOS 5.6 tutorial.

    IF you search for php53-mcrypt on http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3 , you should find packages from rpms.famillecollet.com and dl.iuscommunity.org/pub/ius/archive/Redhat/5.5/ .

    I need php 5.3 to support Joomla 1.7 and latest release of wordpress.

    So here is my plan for Centos 5.6

    yum remove the 5.1 packages taking note of what is removed along with the php packages.

    yum install the equivalent php53 packages. My found the mcrypt package in epel.

    Now that that repo is back in /etc/yum.repos.d I can install the mcrypt package and we'll see if that what was breaking squirrelmail.

    If that fails I'll post my error message. Making this work will save me a ton of time.

    Time that needs to be spent finding a new contract (remaining employed).

    This is the problem.

    I thought php53-common replaces php-common squirrelmail and phpmyadmin don't seem to think so.

    Tried ius and utterramblings, used the replace yum plugin.

    In all cases squirrelmail refused to work.

    with ius, it claimed in the browser that config.php was not present. Worse with php53u there was no reaction, just acted as if the soft links it needed was not there and failed to function.

    The wreckage in this case is the left column of SM, with this errorr:
    ERROR:
    ERROR: Could not complete request.
    Query: CREATE "Sent"
    Reason Given: Invalid mailbox name.

    In spite of following the instructions in http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-5.6-x86_64-ispconfig-3-p6 for correcting that error.

    I think this is a worthy experiment to work on, I think it can be done.

    I would suggest though that the entire process for building perfect server with php 5.3 be cooked and tested. I know its a lot of work, but let me put this premise out.

    A lot of folks including myself use ISPCONFIG3 to stand up word press and Joomla websites. Both of those now require php 5.2.4 or above to stay current. It is probably time for that configuration to simply include a migration to php 5.3.

    Please feel free to contact me email and let me know how to help.

    I'm going to stand up a VM to play with and keep pounding this until it works.

    I have a pair of VM's stood up, one Centos 6, the other 5.6 which I will use to see if I can overcome this issue.

    If I fix it, I will issue a document for the forum. I'm going to try doing the entire curernt 5.6 document starting out with php53 or php53u installed. Lets see if it works.

    The SM issue resolved itself probably based on the fix I tried in 5.6 Perfect Server doc.

    REgards,

    results, maddening to say the least

    I went with ius on a new 32 bit centos 5.6 box.

    I basically installed every php53u package available after ripping out php.

    Squirrelmail worked like a champ, right out of the box.

    Absolutely no results on my production 64 bit 5.6 box.

    Squirrelmail will not work.

    I'm at a loss to explain it.

    It is my belief that the fact squirrelmail is already on the box is a contributing factor to the problem.

    I can't very well rip all the squirrelmail mail data off the system, but I believe a workaround should be possible.

    I need some ideas.

    Bottom line ius php53u will work on a clean install with ISPCONFIG3. But retrofitting to an existing production system is still not working.

    Ideas?

    What about tarring up /var/lib/squirrelmail. Does that preserve the actual mail.

    Perhaps ripping out sendmai /usr/share/squirrelmail /etc/squirrelmail /var/lib/squirrelmail then redoing the install would help.

    Wondering if any of the log files in /var/log/httpd would be of any assistance.

    Based on my i386 results I would say this problem can be solved. Just not by me alone.

    I'm forgetting where the actual mail is stored in the Perfect Server Configuration. looks like all the mail is in /var/vmail/<domain name> Please confirm. A plan is afoot in my pea brain molecules

    If you want to back up your mails, you must back up the whole /var/vmail directory - that's where mails are stored.

    Unfortunately I have no idea why the IUS way doesn't work for you... :confused:

    Thanks. I've given up on RHEL 5.6.

    Since all services work on Centos 6.0 I've backed up the data, have a kvm hooked up and will do as follows:

    1) do the perfect server 6.0 guide.
    2) shut down mysql restore the data from dbispconfig
    3) Start mysql, restart the web server and hopefully be in business.
