    What's new in ISPConfig

    This release contains a security fix against an SQL injection attack and a protection against CSRF attacks. A problem that the publik keys of website ssh users were not saved into the .ssh directory of the home
    directory of the user has been fixed as well.

    The sql injection attack requires an active and correctly authenticated admin user session. User sessions of Resellers, Clients or Mailusers can not be used for the attack. Servers that have "sql_scan_action=block" set in /usr/local/ispconfig/security/security_settings.ini are most likely not affected as the ISPConfig SQL scan engine detecs this attack successfully, the update should be installed anyway.

    The "Reconfigure services" option can be answered with "no" on servers that run ISPConfig or p6.

    See changelog link below for a list of all changes that are included in this release.

    I dont get any problems here and the code of the updater has not been changed in the past releases. The php notice means that the ISPConfig server config file /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/ is missing (or does not contain any config) on your server.

    Regarding hostname error, run the command:

    hostname -f

    and check if it really returns the full hostname of your server.

    Take a look into /var/backup/ folder, there should be a ispconfig backup inside. Untar this and check the file, restore that to the server folder and run the update again.
