    Hi guys,

    Server Details:

    Debian 6 Squeeze
    Horde 5
    ISPConfig 3.0.4.6
    Postfix
    Dovecot
    Apache2
    Bind
    PHP 3.3.3-7

    Recently Horde released an IMAP module that "broke" the log in access - read about it here http://bugs.horde.org/ticket/11824 - now it becomes apparent that PHP 3.3.3 is actually an old version and that PHP 3.4.* is the latest stable.

    My question is simple - Can I upgrade without losing access to databases, etc my ISPConfig 3.0.4.6 and in the future upgrade to 3.0.5 ??

    Cheers,
    Steven Swarts

    I guess you mean PHP 5.3 and 5.4? The problem is that Debian Squeeze doesn't offer any newer PHP versions.

    Correct my error.

    Code:
    root@mail:~# php -v
    PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze14 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Aug  6 2012 14:18:06)
    Copyright (c) 1997-2009 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies
        with Suhosin v0.9.32.1, Copyright (c) 2007-2010, by SektionEins GmbH

    I understand that PHP 5.4 isn't released under the Debian standard sources however is there a method for updating it via other sources? If so would it break ISPConfig 3?

    You might want to check out the dotdeb repo: http://www.dotdeb.org/

    However, I can't say if it will break your system or not.
