    Ok looks nice .. But it's a real pity that CentOS / RHEL 4 isn't supported yet !

    Shouldn't be THAT much work i guess.
  9. Riccardo

    Riccardo Guest

    BoXie Guest

    Yeah ! ;)

    And FINAL is RC1
  12. Riccardo

    Riccardo Guest

    ok so it will be possible to update to latest final then from teh plesk panel itself?
  13. BoXie

    BoXie Guest

    That IS possible .. allthough i prefer upgrading with RPM's ... The Plesk Updater sometimes is a bit buggy or fails.
  14. bartje3

    bartje3 Guest

    ...and especially when it is Beta !

    I prefer to wait until it's safe and tested by "pioneers", will watch the forum at least a week after the release. A year ago I was also so impatient and installed Plesk "warm from baker", which has cost me hours and days of bugfixing.

    And if you look how much there will be changed in this update, you must know that every new feature will also bring new bugs into Plesk. They cannot test Plesk on every of our serverconfigurations, so the users have to find out and report (I think this will never change). Imagine they would have a server for each config, one with Postgresql...one without, one with installed Tomcat package...one without, one with ART's qmail-scanner...one without. Then do updates on all these individual configs (which might be hundreds) would be impossible. I never heard of a script or programm that automaticly checks, deletes, install, uninstall, reconfigure and update again all different kind of configurations untill it has passed all updates with null failures....(simulation-like). If this programm would exist, there wouldn't be any software with bugs.
    First thing you will need when you "try" a beta is a rollback feature (uninstaller), and because Plesk do not have this feature, I will never try an early release again because restoring manually is painfull job.

    I remember the 'good old' days, when (as a developer) we did actually have dozens of test machines, each with different configs, and we (the authors) would actually do the testing. Back in the good old days, when we used to care about our reputations and the quality of our software. We viewed our creations as though they were children and were a direct reflection on ourselves...

    One might ask, 'what changed?'. The simple answer is: GREED

    Software companies decided to become greedy and money mongering.

    Now most programmers are just trying to make as much money as possible in the shortest time.

    Sad state of affairs, but then, if the purchasers would stop buying faulty software, it would send a clear message to the authors...... Supply and demand are wonderful aren't they????

    Note: the problem is not just in the software industry, the hardware side is just as bad these days...

    Theres no such thing as bug free code. Its complex, messy work, when you dont have people complaining about you not having the latest releases, they're complaining about bugs. One negates the other. You can get it better, faster, cheaper.. pick any two.

    Sorry ART, I just re-read my post. I must have been having a really bad day.

    I know from years of experience how hard it is to give bug free code, and dealing with clients demands. And dealing with supply/demand and competition forcing prices down. There have never been enough hours in the day to do everything.

    Same in the hardware side (which I also did for many years).

    I humbly apologize for my earlier post.
