    I have ispconfig 2 running on fedora 10 with 20 websites running and a mail server all working nicely

    Is it possible to run a fedora upgrade from 10 through to fedora 16 without absolutely breaking everything everything....

    I take daily backups of all mysql databases, i take ssh nightely snapshots of all contents in /var/www/*

    I have downloaded backup of ispconfig

    how wrong could it get, or is better to build a new server and move 1 site at a time to new server then do a rebuild of old server and move sites back?

    I think you must upgrade from 10 to 11, then from 11 to 12 and so on. But I'd take backups of all relevant data because I wouldn't rule out that you end with a messed up system...

    I tried the upgrade process and it wouldnt work, kept pulling fedora 15 images. 11, 12 same. started to work on 13 so it says, but rpms came in as fc15.rpms.

    Anway, scrapped that process. I am going for a complete rebuild on fedora 15 with ispconfig 3.
    Incidently, i completed it yesturday. tried logging in https://ipaddress's:8080 and got to the login. used admin and password admin as the default ready to change and move sites there.
    But it states admin user/password wrong. hmm

    before i uninstall and change domain name any advice on what could be the matter

    the instructions on the how-to and the manual are wrong.
    I found that if i followed it to the letter i couldnt log in

    This is the section, i couldnt login as admin..
    so i uninstalled it
    downloaded from http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ispconfig/ISPConfig-
    and re-ran the installer, this time i can login as admin and change the password
    so far so good

    The file is the same on both URL's, so falko's instructions are fine and the different download url is not the reason that it worked the second time.
