    DL server is experiencing high traffic ATM therefore it's hard to start the download or even open the page...

    Note: if you have older version of Plesk (6.x or 7.0.x, then first apply Plesk 7.5.6+ update, and then afterwards normal Plesk 7.5.6 update

    Updates?

    We have been waiting for this release and we want to make sure we have all the updates and patch prior installing it.

    We upgraded from 7.5.5 to 7.5.6 without any problem.

    our system indicate that we have the last patch.
    psa v7.5.6_build20051107.20 os_Windows 5.2.3790.0

    we also, couple days ago installed the uppates succesfully.

    Plesk 7.5.6 for Windows Update 060502.17

    But the plesk control panel still shows

    psa v7.5.6_build20051107.20 os_Windows 5.2.3790.0

    Should it not be build 060502.17 instead ?

    Can anyone confirm that applying updates should also change the build number?

    Any comments...

    I run plesk 7.5.6 ,only have installed the updates i've been offered via plesk auto update which its only hotfix 060314.13


    MY email quotas arent working ATM, and mailbox sizes show as 0 (zero) via the plesk detailed report.

    check this post http://forum.swsoft.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=33564
    I was told this would fixed with plesk 7.6 or a patch that would be released in the middle of june.

    I am also wondering about plesk 7.5 hotfix 060502.17 plesk auto update hasn't offered this update yet, but its available via manual download on the plesk patches page, anybody installed it?

    My server runs MailEnable Prof V1, but I really would love to upgrade to ME 2.0 Prof, there seems to be some issues so i havent done the upgrade yet, was kinda hoping plesk to officially support Mailenable 2.0 Pro, but i don't see that listed as a feature of 7.6, any ideas?

    Sincerely
