    You are right, there was a wrong version number in one of the config files in the tar.gz. I've just uploaded a new tar.gz with correct the version number. You can either ignore the wrong version number or change it manually in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/ and /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/ The version number has no influence on how the system works.

    Why does updating ISPconfig always change my from postfix?
  8. till

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    ISPConfig changes the configuration of services only when you select "y" for the question "Reconfigure services" during update. If you select no, then no config files will be changed.

    In case that you decide that ispconfig shall not update your config files, it might be that new features introduced in ispconfig will not work on your server until you manually change the config files or that bug fixes that need a config file change will not work until you manually apply the fix.

    So its totally up to you if you want to go the easy route and let ispconfig reconfigure the system or you want to do the reconfiguration manually.

    Understood, but I was not aware that it did this also with the postfix config files.

    Would it make sense to implement a feature like apt(itude) in debian has, when updating a package where a config file has changed, to display changes between the current version and the new one?
    This would make things easier to either manually add changes from ispconfig or to readd the own changes.

    We can do this someone is willing to write these info texts for every new ispconfig version before it gets released based on the changelogs of the svn repository.

    I've done some modifications to files:

    Now after upgrading to files are back to original. This is perfectly understandable but my question is, is there a way I can add piece of code so it wont be overwritten on upgrades?

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    Yes. Instead of modifying the modules and plugins that come with ispconfig, create your own custom plugins and attache them to the same events. So they get executed after the ispconfig plugin gets executed.

    If you think your changes might be useful for others as well, then you can propose them for inclusion into the main ispconfig code e.g. by posting them in the developer forum.

    as a solution to cpanel automatic updates I use chattr
    I believe it will work with ispconfig updates as well
    try it and keep us informed
    # chattr -V +i /path/to/file
    # chattr -V -i /path/to/file

    Reconfigure Permissions in master database? (yes,no) [no]:

    i put yes or no ?

    I think Ben means simply make a diff on changed system configuration files as Debian apt(itude) do

    It would be really useful

    Only a question

    Will it *overwrite* them, or will change/add/delete lines?

    I ask, because I have selected to "reconfigure services", my is modified by me, and my added lines were not changed/deleted.

    Is this normal?

    edge, what was the behaviour in your case? Overwrite or change?

    Yes. As ispconfig modidfys only the parameters with postconf that it needs to administer to work correctly.

    If you have a multiserver system, then yes. If you have a single server system, then no.
