    Hi everyone, I have a question for instructions.

    Question # 1:

    I found instructions for updating 3.1 to 3.2, where it works to install goaccess:

    I'd rather update 3.1. * To 3.1.15p3 Is there such a guide?
    E.g.: How to update 3.1.12 and 3.14 to 3.1.15p3

    Question # 2:

    The last instructions for installing ISPConfig on CentOS 7 I found this:

    But it installs 3.1, will there be a guide for CentOS to install ISPConfig 3.2?

    Thank you for the information.

    Download the ISPConfig version you want to update to, unpack it, and run the update.php script in the install folder. But updating to such an outdated version with know security issues makes not much sense in my opinion. You should always keep the system up to date and use latest ISPConfig version to have a safe system.

    There is no difference, just download latest ISPConfig version and install it.

    However, the tutorials are not compatible, I would just use instead of

    Will there be a missing goaccess? Or does it matter that he won't be there? In the above update manual 3.1 -> 3.2 it is added that goaccess should be installed before the update.

    Question # 3:

    So can I take the 3.1 installation instructions and only replace the ISPC source from 3.1 at Without bothering that the manual for 3.2 would include the installation of goaccess, but the manual for 3.1 does not?

    Question #4:

    Do I have to add the goaccess to my 3.1 manual? Or does it matter that he won't be there?

    Question # 5:

    Is there any link that is always the latest?

    for example:

    thanks you.

    You can install goaccess manually, probably before or after updating won't matter. If you don't have it it's also fine, you just won't be able to set website stats to use it, of course.

    It has to be configured by ISPConfig, so after installing it you should run the update script, either with or with the manual download.

    If you want to update 3.1.15p3 you can simply do that with
    cd /tmp
    tar xvfz ISPConfig-3.1.15p3.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3_install/install
    php -q update.php
    But why? The 3.2 upgrade isn't scary, or unstable, it is actually better and secure - several critical vulnerabilities have been fixed. I (and I think the other devs) are very willing to help you with your fears for 3.2+ :)

    You should not add it manually, it does not matter that it's not showing.

    Thank you, perhaps my last questions on this.

    1. What happens if I refuse to install goaccess and run without install goaccess, won't it get angry in the future?
    2. If I change my mind, can I then install goaccess at any time with the published instructions and ispconfig notices it, detects it and starts using it?
    3. What if I decide to install and upgrade it, but after a while I want to turn it off? Is it possible to turn it off in ISPConfig, or will I have to do something like yum remove goaccess and will such an uninstall not cause any complications in ispconfig?
    Thank you very much for the information

    You can install it and then run the update script to configure it correctly.

    You can remove it, but you can also just leave it and it won't be used for your sites. There are probably a lot of packages on your server that you don't use but they are there.
