    Currently I have Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-45-generic x86_64) and ISPConfig Version:
    I am itching to upgrade my UBUNTU to 16.04.1 LTS
    FAQ: What incompatibility can I find with ISPConfig Version:

    ISPConfig 3.0.5.x does not run on PHP 7 and Ubuntu 16.04 uses PHP 7, so you will have to update to ISPConfig 3.1rc2 after upgrading ubuntu.

    I've got the same problem. I moved to Ubuntu 16.04 and ispconfig is broken.

    If I upgrade, will it mess up my database or any other configs?

    Many Thanks

    The update will not mess anything (as long as you did not change the configs by yourself). Upgrade ro rc2 and choose reconfigure services during the update.

    Thanks for replying.

    I ran the update (except I had to use php5.6 -q update.php because the update scripts refer to mysql_connect() which has been removed from php7).

    I answered "no" to the changes.

    Now, when I try, I get ...

    .php-fcgi-starter: 6: exec: /usr/bin/php-cgi: not found

    Sorry, didn't see reconfig services, so I did it again and got this ...

    After several hours of effort I got things going again. Problems with references to non-existent modules and ssl key settings.

    As I don't really need ipsconfig, I also managed to disengage from it completely.

    Thanks anyway.

    So let me make this clear Florian:
    When I update UBUNTU itself -- everything will work on the server.
    Than I update ISPConfig to 3.1rc2 and;
    substitute (my old) /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/vhost.conf.master and;
    I will open /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and delete all 100-******.vhost and;
    I will open ISPConfig and Resync all and;
    it will work?
    I do not have to be concern with PHP 7?

    As long as your websites will work with php 7, this should word. You don't need to change any configs by yourself. Update ispconfig with reconfigure services and resync the websites afterwards.

    FAQ1: If I upgrade ISPconfig to 3.1rc2, and keep my UBUNTU at current 14.04.5 LTS, and make no changes to any configs, will ISPconfig 3.1rc2 work with my current UBUNTU, do I have to Resync anyway.
    FAQ2: My websites are not build on PHP but Perl. Will it work?
