    Thanks for the update. Though I think I did something stupid. When doing the update, I took the defaults and it looks like it cleared all of my previous data. Any way to recover or am I SOL and just have to reset my sites? My sites work, though it deleted my email accounts, ftp accounts, and other things. I have a SQL backup of ISPConfig, but looks like I have more to deal with then just that. So if I have to reset, do I have to delete all of my old sites/databases?

    You have either installed a SVN version or updated to a SVN version on your server before and now you installed a stable update which is not compatible with the svn version that you have installed. So your problem is not a problem with ISPConfig, you just tried to update to a incompatible version as the version that you had already installed had more database tables then the update. Never use SVN versions on production systems!

    You most likely lost your database now, please restore the database from an backup. If you dont have a backup take a look at the /root/ directory, ispconfig stores a backup of the database there before the update is performed.

    If you installed or updated to svn at any time before, you can not install any released version on your system anymore.

    You dont have a valid databse anymore because you used a svn relaese, see my post above. NEVER USE SVN VERSIONS ON PRODUCTION SYSTEMS.

    This will not work because your database is emty now and the updater will fail without the information from the db. What you can do is:

    1) Delete all tables in the database.
    2) Download the latest svn version and import the sql dump that you find in the install/sql/ directory into the database.
    3) Empty all tables in the database and import the backup that ispconfig stored in the the /root/ folder.

    Sorry, I downloaded the final that was posted via sourceforge via wget, extracted it in my tmp dir and ran the php -q update.php. There were two prompts that defaulted to yes which I accepted thinking it wouldn't delete everything. But no, I didn't use the SVN release.

    Thats all fine so far, but you must have used a SVN release for updating or initial installation anytime before that. If a svn update was used anytime before then you can not install a regular update anymore.

    Ok, how can I then migrate to non-SVN version of the software so I don't run into this again?

    The problem are the additional database tables in the svn that will have to be removed to be able to install the stable versions again. I will check them and post a sql script here. For now you will have to restore your database as I described above.

    It worked for the most part. Everything came back, but when I added a domain to the site that wasn't in the backup, I get the following message now

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    If a site was not in the backup then you can not add a domain to it off course. If something is not there then you can not add another thing to it.

    So I can't add any new sites? Anyway, the only thing that wasn't in the database was my webmail software which was out on the server still, I re-added the domain, and once I did that, none of my sites work now (about 5). They all get the above error message when I go to the site. This is since I tried to re-add the webmail domain again. Nothing else has changed.

    @koltz: One additional note: Which backup did you use? The backup that ispconfig did right before the update? Because in this backup there can not be a domain missing as it was done right in the second were the update was done.
