    I am trying to upgrade from ISPConfig 2.0.7 and am wondering what intermediary versions are necessary to install before version 2.2.9 and any other software, tips, tricks, etc.

    Thanks.

    You can go directly from 2.2.7 to 2.2.9. Make sure that you have a c++ compiler installed, this is a prerequisite since ISPConfig 2.2.8.

    I recommend this backup procedure:

    1) Make a backip directory in a place, wehere you have enough space (about 200 MB are enough in most cases).

    mkdir /home/backup

    2) Make backups of the directories /home/admispconfig and /root/ispconfig

    tar pcfz /home/backup/ispconfig_root.tar.gz /root/ispconfig/
    tar pcfz /home/backup/ispconfig_home.tar.gz /home/admispconfig/

    3) Make a backup of your ISPConfig mysql database with e.g. mysqldump

    mysqldump -u root -p db_ispconfig > /home/backup/ispconfig_database.sql

    (make sure that you use the correct database name for your installation, in case you select a other name for the DB then db_ispconfig)

    4) Download and run the update. In case anything goes wrong, you can restore everything that ISPConfig replaces during a update with the working version you had before.

    I am upgrading from 2.0.7, not 2.2.7.

    Sorry, i mistyped the version number. But it does not make a difference.

    How do I install a c++ compiler?

    So, logged in as root, I download the latest ISPConfig, put it in my home folder, unpack it, and run setup. The exact same thing I did to install it in the first place?

    How do I know if it's doing a fresh install rather than simply updating it?

    By using an installer that is part of your distribution. E.g. apt-get (or dselect) for Debian/Ubuntu, rpm for Redhat ES or Yum for FC. I believe Suse uses Yast, but I never used Suse. C++ is not part of ISPconfig and it has no relation with ISPConfig.
    If you did not remove your previous installation this will update your ISPConfig (and I assume you didn't delete the previous version, as that will remove anything you ever installed/configured, including your websites).

    I usually use apt-get . . . so can I just do apt-get c++?

    Is there a step of the setup that would let me know that it's doing a fresh install rather than updating it -- so I can stop it.

    Code:
    apt-get install gobjc++
    would be a suggestion, as this is the package on my Ubuntu 6.10 environment and Debian Etch system.

    The setup script of ISPConfig does an update if it finds a previous version and if not, it will do a fresh install.

    If you want to start with removing everything, you need to un-install ISPConfig 1st. IIRC there's a command for that somewhere, but I don't recall that right now. But again, un-installing will remove EVERYTHING you have done before (users, websites, ftp config, spamassassin updates, etc, etc.) Why do you want to remove before update/re-install? An update should fix anything that's broken normally.

    If you have a debian or ubuntu system, use:

    apt-get install cpp g++

    If the installer asks you to choose between expert and standard installation, then it is not a update.

    I backed everything up, but got the following error when I tried installing ISPConfig 2.2.9. Should I restore everything OR should I install the missing modules then try installing 2.2.9 again? I'm not sure how to proceed either way. PLEEASE HELP.

    Please install the missing modules, then run make the following folder:

    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    and unpack and run the installer again.

    You can install the missing perl modules like described below. Dont forget to create the /root/ispconfig directory before you try to update ISPConfig again. All these prerequisitesa re not new, so the perl must have been removed from your system after your initial ISPConfig installation.

    --

    Install some Perl Modules needed by SpamAssassin (comes with ISPConfig)

    Installation using the Perl Shell

    Login to your command line as root and run the following command to start the Perl shell:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell

    If you run the Perl shell for the first time you will be asked some questions. In most cases the default answers are ok.

    Please note: If you run a firewall on your system you might have to turn it off while working on the Perl shell in order for the Perl shell to be able to fetch the needed modules without a big delay. You can switch it on afterwards.

    The big advantage of the Perl shell compared to the two other methods described here is that it cares about dependencies when installing new modules. I.e., if it turns out that a prerequisite Perl module is missing when you install another module the Perl shell asks you if it should install the prerequisite module for you. You should answer that question with "Yes".

    Run the following commands to install the modules needed by SpamAssassin:

    install HTML::parser
    install Digest::SHA1
    install DB_File
    install Net::DNS (when prompted to enable tests, choose no)
    q (to leave the Perl shell)

    If a module is already installed on your system you will get a message similar to this one:

    HTML::parser is up to date.

    Successful installation of a module looks like this:

    /usr/bin/make install -- OK

    Install the pre-req's first, then re-install ISPConfig. I always try to stick to the distribution packages only and not to mix CPAN and package installs. The latter will bite you somewhere sometime.

    On my Ubuntu 6.10 system I've used
    Code:
    apt-get install libdigest-sha1-perl libhtml-parser-perl libnet-dns-perl libmail-spf-query-perl razor libnet-ident-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl libwww-perl libdate-manip-perl libtimedate-perl libarchive-tar-perl webalizer
    to get the ISPConfig pre-requisites right.

    1) It couldn't find the first four packages . . .

    2) Will ISPConfig still detect an existing version and update it (Please say yes)?

    Thanks.

    Please use Till's way to install the packages because you use SuSE, not Ubuntu.

    Yes, if /root/ispconfig, /home/admispconfig, and the ISPConfig database exist.

    I tried using the commands and it still gave me the error. Finally, I updated the modules using Yast and it worked . . .

    Thanks.
