    Hi All,

    I have a problem with updating ISPConfig2 from 2.2.17 to 2.2.37, sorry put 2.2.27 in the title.
    I am running Debian 6.0 Squeeze.

    I have downloaded the tar.gz from ISPConfig.org and extracted the files.
    I then cd into install_ispconfig and type ./setup

    It all starts beavering away but then comes up with the following message.

    Code:
    ./configure:Error: APACI failed
    ERROR: Could not configure Apache
    
    I have looked in the apache logs and see nothing around the time it was installed.

    If i go to https://192.168.2.3:81 I only get a reply saying "This webpage is not available"

    Any help is greatly appreciated, even if it means helping me revert back to 2.2.17 as that was working.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Sorry just realised there is more to the apache setup as follows.

    Code:
    Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.41
     + Warning: Your 'echo' command is slightly broken.
     + It interprets escape sequences per default. We already
     + tried 'echo -E' but had no real success. If errors occur
     + please set the SEO variable in 'configure' manually to
     + the required 'echo' options, i.e. those which force your
     + 'echo' to not interpret escape sequences per default.
     + using installation path layout: Apache (config.layout)
    Creating Makefile
    Creating Configuration.apaci in src
    Syntax error --- The configuration file is used only to
    define the list of included modules or to set Makefile in src
    options or Configure rules, and I don't see that at all:
    /root/ispconfig/openssl
    yes
    default
    no
    no
    no
     `$(SRCDIR)/apaci`

    ./configure:Error: APACI failed
    ERROR: Could not configure Apache
    
    
    A little more info that happens when I try to restart it.

    Code:
    server:/etc/init.d# ./ispconfig_server restart
    Shutting down ISPConfig system...
    ./ispconfig_server: line 66: /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl: No such file or directory
    ISPConfig system stopped!
    Starting ISPConfig system...
    ./ispconfig_server: line 45: /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl: No such file or directory
    ./ispconfig_server: line 48: /root/ispconfig/php/php: No such file or directory
    ISPConfig system is now up and running!
    
    Thanks

    Hi Falko,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I have done what was said, and installation did get beyond that point but when it tried to start the ISPConfig server it gave the following errors.

    Code:
    Starting ISPConfig system...
    shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
    [Fri Feb 18 17:49:48 2011] [alert] ispconfig_httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName

    OK I tried to reinstall the previous version by extracting the files out of temp into /home and
    /root

    That seemed to work but I still cant start the server.

    It seems that its the ssl that causing the problem.

    The mySQL database remains intact with all the data.

    See below, I a just start apachectl it start ok, but if I try apachectl startssl it cant start.

    Code:
    server:~# /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl start
    [Fri Feb 18 18:31:46 2011] [alert] ispconfig_httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
    /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl start: httpd started
    
    server:~# /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl stop
    /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl stop: httpd stopped
    
    server:~# /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl
    [Fri Feb 18 18:33:21 2011] [alert] ispconfig_httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName
    /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started
    
    Thanks

    Try
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
    If that doesn't work, check the error log in /root/ispconfig/httpd/logs.

    Hi Falko,

    Thank you again for your reply.

    I tried that and it failed again with the same error.

    This is what was recorded in the error log.

    Code:
    [Sat Feb 19 17:58:56 2011] [error] mod_ssl: Init: Unable to read server certificate from file /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt (OpenSSL library error follows)

    This is the contents of ssl_engine_log

    Code:

    Thanks

    Hi Falko,

    I have remade a new key etc by entering the following commands.
    Code:
    openssl req -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout myserver.key -out server.csr
    openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
    openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt
    
    I then copied the server.key into /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key
    copied server.crt into /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.crt
    and copied server.csr into /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.csr/server.csr

    I basically just followed the steps upto and including step 4 here - http://www.akadia.com/services/ssh_test_certificate.html

    I then restarted the server using /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

    All worked ok.

    I'm just wondering if this is a correct fix?

    One thing it no longer asks me for a passphrase when starting the server like it used to?

    By the way I have backed up any of the files that I have replaced just in case.

    Thanks for your time.

    That's how it's supposed to be. Take a look at http://www.ispconfig.org/ispconfig-2/installation-instructions-for-ispconfig-2/ :

    "In step 7 (“Encrypting RSA private key of CA with
    a pass phrase for security [ca.key]“)and step 8 (“Encrypting
    RSA private key of SERVER with a pass phrase for security
    [server.key]“) of the certificate creation process
    you are asked if you want to encrypt the respective key now.
    Choose n there because otherwise you will always
    be asked for a password whenever you want to restart the ISPConfig
    system which means it cannot be restarted without human interaction!"

    Thanks Falko,

    I must have done it wrong when I set it up originally over 2 years ago, I just thought it was the norm.

    Once again your support has been fantastic.
