    Hello, I'm going to change IP address of my server with ISPConfig. What should I do and in what order?

    Offtopic: My server works on Debian 5. Is it possible to upgrade it to Debian 6 saving whole configuration?

    1) Change the IP in /etc/network/interfaces file and in /etc/hosts. Then login to ispconfig, add the new IP under System > Server IP and then set the new IP in all websites that dont use *. When you have done this, remove the old IP under System > server IP.

    Yes, thats possible. Update the system with apt. In case that some config files got overwritten, rerun the ispconfig updater. On my server I had choose to keep all config files when apt asked except of the mysql server config file.
