    Ive used this tutorial for installing my Ubuntu 10.04 web server, and it works splendid.

    Recently i started checking the tutorial again, to be sure to have the latest software installed, as some of the software used in the tutorial wasn't installed using the package manager and the Ubuntu repositories.
    This is the reason i'm posting on the forum. At Chapter 10 on page3, DCC get's installed. And i noticed there is a newer release on the site.

    So i was wondering if an update is as easy, as running the same commands again with the updated .tar.gz. Or are there possibilities of breaking the install?

    Here's what the tutorial states:
    Code:
    cd /tmp
    wget http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc-dccproc.tar.Z
    tar xzvf dcc-dccproc.tar.Z
    cd dcc-dccproc-1.3.126
    ./configure --with-uid=amavis
    make
    make install
    chown -R amavis:amavis /var/dcc
    ln -s /var/dcc/libexec/dccifd /usr/local/bin/dccifd
    Thanks in advance for any help towards this question.

    I think you can use the same instructions. It's possible that the last command (ln -s) gives you an error because the symlink is already there, but that's just a warning - nothing to worry about. :)

    Thanks for your response Falko.

    Agreed. It would seem to be as easy as running those commands again.
    Will definitely try it out this weekend.
