    dear team,
    i want update my ispconfig 3 from debian 8 to 9.
    all has worked fine, but i have one problem (on php fpm):
    for this both command on how to install php 7.1, 7.2, php 5.6
    ln -s /usr/lib/libc-client.a /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc-client.a
    cd /usr/include
    ln -s x86_64-linux-gnu/curl

    i get this error message:
    ln: the symbolic link '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc-client.a' could not be created: file or directory not found

    i dont have a /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu path, so i cant build php 7.2 with imap support.
    but i have a /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu folder.

    the same problem i hade on the installation openssl-1.0.1t.tar.gz for php 5:
    ln -s /opt/openssl/lib /opt/openssl/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

    how i can upgrade to debian 9 with PHP71,72,56 FPM Support without any errors?

    can anybody help me?

    thank you!

    Are you running a 32-bit installation? Check with
    dpkg --print-architecture
    It answers amd64 if it is 64-bit installation.

    here is the output:
    [email protected]:/usr/lib# dpkg --print-architecture

    and what can i now do? can i do the update in any case? or not possible?

    thank you!

    have you tried installing the php versions with debian packages from
    look at for how-to.
    I'm not sure if it will work but it's worth a try, plus it will keep being update with latest security patches and so on.

    It looks like you are looking at some instructions to compile the sources yourself, if so you have to make manual adjustments for those instructions to compile things for 32-bit architecture instead of 64-bit.

    You can update as usual, but read the i386 upgrade manual.
    And like @Stephan Ververda already wrote, keep in mind which architecture you have when reading instructions.
    The sury repository looks like it has i368 architecture also. I would use those, I trust Ondrej Sury more than my own skills in creating PHP packages or compiling PHP.
    If, on the other hand you want to move to 64-bit architecture, that is not possible with upgrade. You have to install a new host with 64-bit Debian 9 and move the data from old host to new. There are howtos for this and ISPConfig Migration toolkit.
