    - Login to your server as root.

    - Download the ISPConfig-2.2.14.tar.gz from

    Proceed with the commands:

    tar xvfz ISPConfig-2.2.14.tar.gz
    cd install_ispconfig

    The installer automatically detects the installed ISPConfig version and performs an update.

    The installer creates automaticly an bakup of your existing ISPConfig database files within /tmp.

    It is important that you download and run the installer within a pertition/directory which has enough free space.
    This is also the case for /tmp.

    Do not update from the stable branch to the development-branch or visa versa.

    The only thing is what time of downtime will have?
    Any idea?
    Services will be up or not?

    Thanks again

    During an update of ISPConfig, only ISPConfig itself will not be available.
    All the other services like Apache2 for your sites, FTP, DNS, POP, SMTP & IMAP etc. will be available all the time.

    Just to be sure, it is always a good idea to make a backup of:


    and the ISPConfig mysql database before you perform the update.

    Yes that's correct.
    I forgot to mention it, because my backups are done automaticly from one server to another :D

    I just performed this upgrade, and it is *completely* painless. Your server doesn't go down for a moment.

    It takes about 15-20 mins to upgrade, but you don't have to do much input, except check the shell output.
