Fear of 8.0.1

    Okay, after the problems I encountered with the upgrade from 7.5.4 to 8.0 through the control panel, I'm fearful of the upgrade to 8.0.1

    I realize there are certain improvements, but it may be quite a while before I attempt the upgrade.

    I'm running RHE and I finally got almost all of the problems worked out. I still have issues and concerns with qmail and smtp authorization, but the firewall module has helped with the worst offenders.

    Until someone chimes in with "It's perfectly safe and flawless." I'm happy to run 8.0.

    While major version upgrades (like Plesk 7.5 -> 8) can be painful, minor upgrades and especially x.0.1 releases are usually a very good idea to install since they iron out the bugs since the x.0.0 release.

    If you don't trust updates, run a separate testing box. I'm running 8.0.1 on a couple of boxes just fine.

    I agree with breun, go ahead and update your server. The only problem I've had or heard of is that webmail gets broken. But the fix is real easy, once the update is complete run:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng -a

    Everything will be OK.
