I just ran a simple yum update php on the server, because I need to be running 5.2 instead of 5.1.6
The update went smoothly, so I restarted httpd, and all hell broke loose. Apache can't start because of a whole lot of missing modules. So I commented out every single LoadModule line to see if that would get it to start, and it started complaining about the configuration file of some other software being incorrect (because that configuration file pointed to some module that no longer exists)
At one point I was able to get apache to start, I believe by copying my old configuration file to httpd.conf and then commenting out some lines that it was complaining about. Apache started, but no pages were loading.
So right now, basically, I've got no web service running at all on the server. I really didn't expect all of these problems for a simple PHP update, but obviously I was mistaken.
Is it worth trying to fix this myself (intermediate linux user here) or would it just be easier to hire someone to come in and do it for me?
I have a client who is currently running their own linux machine and has php4 installed (mad I know ) Anyways, I have been asked to make some scripts for them, however I am wanting to use php5 rather than php4 as that is what I am accustomed to not to mention it's still got support for it. Does anyone know of any good online resources on how to upgrade to php5? or better still, how to install php5 and run both 4 and 5 on the same server (using Apache)
I would like upgrading to apache2.X and PHP5.x I have some question about that, can I find details how can I make upgrade without any problem, in cpanel (aptche upgrade ) what modules can I check it befor upgrading I don't know what need to check ?? is my sites working well without problem after upgrading?
I have a Win2003 dedicated server (with The Planet) that i use to host a large IPB forum site.
I got it about 3yrs ago and as I was a complete newbie to server management I got Plesk CP installed so that it would take care of all the SQL, PHP and mail installation and setup in one easy go.
I've since found Plesk for Windows to be a complete waste of space.. but it's still on there and has never been upgraded. I don't actually use it as a CP.
Similarly PHP and mySQL have never been upgraded.
Now I've got to the stage where, to upgrade the IPB forum software, I need to upgrade PHP and mySQL.. but looking at the installation, they seem to be embedded in the Plesk installation. They're inside the SWSoft/Plesk/ folders and none of the ini or config files appear to be in the places you'd expect them to be.
My question -
Would these upgrades be simple?? A case of just running an update package?? Or is the fact that PHP/mySQL are embedded in Plesk mean that it'll all mess up?
I'm worried that a failed upgrade will knacker the forum, which is why I've delayed for so long.
After upgrading components as suggested by "Tools&Settings->Plesk->Updates and Upgrades" item, components remained the previous version (PHP 5.3.3 and MySQL 5.1.73) as stated by phpinfo() result and by "Tools&Settings->Server Management->Server Components" list, though "Update Components" is no more permitted as if there is nothing more to update.
I need both PHP and MySQL servers updated in order to run Joomla 3.3.6.
Yesterday we upgraded V.11 to V.11.5.30. And now we are not able to restore our backups anymore from our main server on our failover server by CLI (we have automated this with cronjobs and need the CLI backup/restore). We have a failover sulotion with two servers and restore the backups of our main server on our failover server!
If we try to create the map file on our failover server, we get the error:
The dump specification '/home/backups/plesk_partnerserver/dumps/backup_info_1308030132.xml' should be inside of dump directory '/home/backups/plesk/dumps'. /home/backups/plesk_partnerserver/dumps is the path on our failoverserver where we store the backups of our main server and /home/backups/plesk/dumps ist the regular dump path of the failover server.
And if we try to restore the file without creating a map file on our failover server with /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --restore backup_info_1308030132.xml -level server: Unable to resolve all conflicts
What happend? Now after upgrading to 11.5 our backup- and failover-solutions are in big trouble!
I need to upgrade mysql from 5.1.73 to 5.7 but I have applications like lms, cms, and websites that runs with that version with no problems, my question is: Some of you had problems upgrading mysql, because i kwon plesk runs over mysql y i don't want to mess up with plesk.
We have a plesk server running on a Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS machine. We check the state of the mailqueue with nagios, executing the "mailq" command. After the AutoInstaller upgraded our installation from 12.0.18 update 38 to 39, we noticed, that the nagios check failed.
After investigating a little bit, it seems that we found the problem:
When I enter "mailq" in the shell, the command is executed and gives me an proper output. But when I try to execute the command with its full path "/usr/bin/mailq" nothing happens, and I have to cancel with [ctrl]+[c]. The which-command delivers exactly the same path as written above...
I am running phpbb 3.0.12 installed from Plesk. In Plesk it is showing me that there is an upgrade available to version 3.1.2-15 however when I Re-Check the version in phpbb it says that I already have the latest version 3.0.12. That's a little weird.
The problem is when I upgrade to 3.1.2-15 in Plesk, it will mess with the whole installation. The forum page will redirect in circles to /install/index.php which doesn't even exist and I can't do anything except revert to before the upgrade.
So my questions are: Why does Plesk show a version 3.1.2-15 but phpbb says the latest one is 3.0.12? How does the upgrade process from Plesk work? I expect it to automatically do everything, or why else would I want to let Plesk upgrade?
I upgraded from 10.4.4 to 11.0.9 and saw no errors in the process, everything was fine. However when I checked the sites after, all of them (including sub-domains) were showing the default domain page. All the files are still there no problem, and as a test I deleted a subdomain a recreated it and it worked fine.
I have a feeling it's something to do with IP addresses (I currently have two set up - most sites use one and about only 5 use the other) as going to the subscription and changing the IP address over to the other one then back to the original seems to make the site show up for most sites. I can't do this on all sites though - any commands to reconfigure everything and get it all back in to place?
I had Plesk 10 installed on my openSUSE system (was a low version, maybe 11 or less) and then decided to upgrade to 11.5. So I did distribution upgrades to openSUSE 12.3 and everything went smoothly, except for some services like mysql and php. So I used Plesk autoinstaller to fix the php error and edited an outdated line in mysql configuration and both services ran smoothly!
Then I downloaded Plesk autoinstaller and ran the autoinstaller, but was surprised by this error message:
===> Checking for previous installation ... found. ERR (3) [panel]: Error during product key mode determination, details: Unable to connect to database: ; trace: #0 /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/functions.php(2821): isPpaKeyRequired() #1 /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/common_func.php3(11): require_once('/usr/local/psa/...') #2 /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/api-common/cu.php(5): require_once('/usr/local/psa/...') #3 /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/httpdmng(8): include_once('/usr/local/psa/...') #4 (main)

- My MySQL version is: 5.5.33 openSUSE package - I did run mysql_upgrade with my admin username and password (password from: /etc/psa/.psa.shadow) and it worked successfully and fixed all of the errors, I did so after running the auto installer first, but then ran the installer again and the problem was still there - I can access my web page, but it still doesn't connect to MySQL either.
I believe this is a problem with MySQL, but how can I make sure or detect what exactly the problem is
Today I upgraded to Plesk 12 and during the day I got several customers that had problems with their mailbox size. According to Plesk they were exceeding the size, but they've been doing that for years. The setting that these limits don't have any real meaning is ignored after the upgrade...

Why do PHP.net don't give much importance to this BUG?
I recently installed ubuntu 7.10, and apache2. Both installed with no problems. In my browser i am able to type localhost, and i recieve the "It works" page. I can also start,stop and restart with no problems. However, I cannot install php5. I use synaptic package manager to install, and i added the appropriate lines to the httpd.conf file but i still cannot view .php files. I try to run a simple php page and a dialog box pops up prompting me to open or save the file. If i choose either, the box just pops up again.
I'm trying to keep up with things by developing for PHP5. My current host still uses PHP 4.4.1, which is a pain. Can someone advise me if I should change host to someone who uses PHP5. I would rather have shared hosting due to budget. If so, who should I use? Otherwise, can someone point me in the direction of a resource that describes how to develop for PHP5 while retaining backward compatibility for PHP4.x so I can write code targeted primarily at PHP5, but also works on PHP4.x?
