    I just created a new ISPConfig server. I notice that when I update the packages list for the APS installer it shows quite old version of Joomla and Wordpress.

    On a previous ISPConfig server installation I am offered a newer version.
    Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx)) ISPConfig
    Joomla Offered: 3.0.3-5

    On the new server...
    (Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS (Precise Pangolin)) ISPConfig
    Joomla Offered: 1.0.15-7

    This seems a bit backwards. Is there maybe a problem with the APS repository or have I missed something?

    The list of aps packages comes from apsstandard.org, so its not our repository. It might be tht they have. Problem with their repo or removed packages.

    Very strange because with my installation (Centos 6.4 + ISPConfig it takes Joomla 2.5.11 (Release 5)...

    I am also being offered 2.5.11-5. It looks like the repository is slowly catching up with the rest of the world.

    Is there only one repostitory or does ISPConfig pull from a particular mirror of many? Just wondering if we are tuned in to a dud mirror and if it can be changed.

    OK. I did some digging around on this. I'm a little bit out of my depth and completely out of time available but it seems the crawler code is missing the newest version of Joomla even though it is clearly in the returned XML from the repository.

    I just submitted a but report.

    For reference on my install.


    Existing CentOS 6.4 x64 build, ISPConfig

    Last package update done some time two weeks ago when installing a wordpress site. Offered joomla 3.0.3-5 when I logged in just now.

    Did APS packagelist update and now offers joomla 2.5.11-5 as well.

    Available packages (175)


    Brand new build done Saturday, same architecture:

    Only offers joomla 2.5.11-5.

    Available packages (159)

    Again for reference, I have just emptied aps_packages tables and resynced packagelist from within interface;

    existing server above - Available packages (175)
    new server above - Available packages (157)

    Scrap the above seems the tables didnt empty when I did it.

    Did it again and both old and new servers show 157 packages pulled from repository with joomla 2.5.11-5 offered.

    What I did;
    * rm -rf /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/sites/aps_meta_packages/*
    * TRUNCATE "dbispconfig.aps_packages"
    * resync packagelist from interface

    Result = 157 packages offered

    Tested on brand new box just built with no aps packagelist and same results - 157 packages, joomla 2.5.11-5 offered.

    If there's a bugette in the ispconfig code I would suspect its not wiping "old" packages that are not being currently offered.

    It seems something changed a few weeks ago that broke some assumptions being made by the APS crawler.

    The Joomla is still offered because it is a newer, not older, version than the found from the repository. My older server also offered both however when I try and create a the next screen in the wizard refers to again.

    Flushing the APS cache directory and the database table and running the crawler again gives only

    Actually the latest version in the repository is 3.1.1-3 if only the APS crawler can be persuaded to see it.

    BTW. Please vote for the bug report if you are also experiencing the App version problem.

    How interesting,

    Search repository online at apsstandard.org and you do not even get joomla 2.5.11-5 returned in the list - they have 2.5.11-6 there.


    Not sure how that translates into a list pulled from apscatalog.com, according to server/lib/classes/aps_base.inc.php.

    OT I seem to recall trying to log a bug report before stating I had duplicate categories in drop-down boxes on the APS filters - caused by difference between upper case and lower case I think.

    Thanks Till. I have found a solution that appears to work for me and submitted a patch in the bug report.

    Simon, out of curiosity I just put that patch on one of my dev boxes (Centos 6.4 x86_64 + apache), updated packagelist and about 45 newer packages have dropped in with a couple of new categories as well!

    Thanks from me for looking at that - I look forward to seeing an update rolled into ispconfig.
