Manually updated to 8.4 because Plesk (web)updater wouldn't

    I've manually updated to 8.4 (rpm -ivh --force <packagename>.rpm) because the updater in Plesk wouldn't update correctly. I did it the hard way because later I found out that you could update with the command-line "/usr/local/psa/bin/autoupdate" (without quotes).

    After the first attempted update the mailserver stopped responding.
    Then I've manually updated everyting what lead to the problem that Apache wouldn't start. This was because in "/etc/apache2/httpd.conf" at the end was added:
    I could easely remove them because it was double. After that Apache ran like before.

    The mailserver came to live again after the manually updates, now I can recieve mail again. But still I can't send them... Or I can't send them with the SMTP Authorization activated in my mailprogram.

    Also when looking at the updater and selecting 8.4.0 it tells me there are still updates available, "Base packages of Plesk May 14, 2008 May 14, 2008 An update is available", ColdFusion support for Plesk Dec 18, 2007 April 25, 2008 An update is available, Real-time Blackhole List client for qmail Dec 18, 2007 May 14, 2008 An update is available. Esspecially the Base Packages of Plesk is driving me crazy.

    Does anybody know how to get my autherized SMTP-access running again and get the web Updater to believe the the system is really updated?

    Fixed it....

    The only thing that had to be done was installing the system again, OS and Plesk...
    Ran like a charm after a clean install and update.
