    ich just tried to update from 3.1.14p2 to 3.1.15.

    I get an error while creating the backup :

    Shall the script create a ISPConfig backup in /var/backup/ now? (yes,no) [yes]:

    Creating backup of "/usr/local/ispconfig" directory...
    Creating backup of "/etc" directory...
    Checking ISPConfig database .. OK
    mysql: unknown variable 'general_log_file=/var/log/mysql/mysql.log'
    Unable to call mysql command line with credentials from mysql_clientdb.conf

    Any idea what this can be ?

    regards, Ralph

    Is your database software the one that is shipped with your OS or is it taken from other third party repository?

    Seems as if you changed something in mysql/mariadb config files which broke the database system. Search for the mentioned line "general_log_file=/var/log/mysql/mysql.log" in the mysql or mariadb config files and comment it out.

    Then search further for duplicates of this line. Mysql would not complain about it if it is commented out.

    Yes. The error that you got is directly from mysql, its not an ispconfig error. It means that this config option may not be added where you found it now.
