    When you say 64 bit support will I still have to change the config file before I install this version.

    If anyone has ISPConfig installed on a PPC machine and is braver than I...please let me know how it goes. I simply cannot break my current install. This is the first upgrade I've seen since 2.1 or so that makes me seriously think about upgrading.

    brent.stephens New Member

    Well I think I'm going to go ahead. According to the logs I kept when I originally set up ISPC, the things you guys fixed such as zip, cronolog, PHP...are exactly the things I had issues with. Am I correct in believing that restoring a backed up /root/ispconfig directory will get me back to my properly running config, should something go wrong?

    Please make a complete backup of your system if possible before you update. To make an easy restorable ISPConfig backup, backup the directories /root/ispconfig, /home/admispconfig with preserved permissions and the ispconfig database. In case the upgrade fails, just restore these backups to their original places.

    Upgrading now. Thanks for the very quick response, Till. I'm not sure if you guys could use it, but I'll keep you updated as to whether or not it works smoothly on the PPC architecture. From the looks of it, the core issues that I remember and have documented have been addressed.

    Update: Everything looks to be functioning well. No complaints as of yet :) Way to go ISPC team.

    Boys and Girls... I'm still on the 'old' 2.1.2 version, and I must say that it's really working nice!

    I'm about to start adding more sites and clients to the system, but I'm not sure if I should do this before I've updated to the new 2.2.0 version as the update might 'break' things, with the result of installing everything over again.

    My question.. Is the update really needed, and is the 2.2.0 the final version, or is it still in 'beta' testing?

    If I do the update, I should make a restorable ISPConfig backup... Whats the best way of doing this? I've only got root SSH access to the server (Fedora RC4).

    It's a final version; if it was a beta, we would have marked it as such.

    Make a backup of /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig:
    cd /root
    tar -pczf root.tar.gz ispconfig/
    cd /home
    tar -pczf home.tar.gz admispconfig/
    Also make an SQL dump of the ISPConfig database:

    Okay.. I'm about to update /!\
    How do I (if needed) un 'gz' the file root.tar.gz, and home.tar.gz.
    And will all the file be CHMOD and CHOWN'ed the way it needs to be after restoring the old files?

    I'm only asking for just in case!

    The tar option "p" stands for preserve permissions.

    To unpack the files:

    cd /root
    tar -xfz root.tar.gz
    cd /home
    tar -xfz home.tar.gz

    Guess what..

    The upgrade did not go 100% ok :p

    I used to access ISPconfig with my_ip:81.
    After the update I could only access some parts of it this way.
    It was the same with and

    One of the problems was that I could not access any thing in the Management > Server part (I got an error: "The page cannot be displayed")

    Also.. On all pages showing the 'ISP Server Status' the 'nav_lft.gif' and 'nav_rgt.gif' were missing. (see image)


    The problems was that was not resolving! (it never did, as I did not set it up to do so)

    After adding an 'A Record' for 'host' in the DNS to make resolve to the server IP, all was working fine again.

    I can now access ISPconfig with and access the Management > Server (images are also shown) HOWEVER my_ip:81, and will still not let me access the 'Management > Server' part.. When I try to do this, it will kick me to the loginpage on

    I guess that this is all correct as the hostname of the server is: host, and the Domainname is:
    I'm still not sure why I did not have this problem the 'old' ISPconfig setup.

    Question... Can I change the 'host' name in ISPconfig to 'www' to make ISPconfig accessable again with only ? (I'm used to this now)

    Thanks again for all the help.. and a big thank you to the ISPConfig team.. Your product looks great!
