    Plesk can update the components of the controlpanel, but not the OS. You, as admin, are fully responsible to keep your OS updated, this is not the task of Plesk.

    In other words, get into ssh, and setup the ART-repositories, or hire a sysadmin who can do it for you.

    I didn't mean to flame or something.

    I'm just trying to tell you that Plesk doesn't do updates to your OS. That's why you should implement the repositories, one way or another. If you don't you coukld be left with some ugly security holes, depending on the current state of your server.

    If you take a look at http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/ you can see the input you need to enter the bottom of the page. Just follow the instructions on the site and you' ll be fine. You could always download VMWare Workstation to try these things. With VMWare you can setup a virtual OS on your existing OS. I use it all the time for testing. They have a 30-day trial, so that shouldn't be much of an issue.

    Good Luck!

    ok
    have installed yum
    run up2date
    found more obsoletes
    tried to update any of them
    get error
    unknown GPG signature...aborting
    on the atomicrocket website it says:
    Dont forget to install my GPG key on your system: RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt

    rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt

    tried this command direct from root
    get error import read failed
    should it be rpm --import http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt
    ????

    You don't need to run up2date if you are using yum. Replace the contents of your /etc/yum.conf file with this:

    [main]
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    pkgpolicy=newest
    distroverpkg=redhat-release
    tolerant=1
    exactarch=1

    Then it's as simple as running the command:

    #yum update

    ok
    i dont have a yum.conf file
    i assume i have messed up somewhere

    i haven't actually installed anything, all i have done is added this line:

    yum atomic-psa75 http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/psa75/3ES/
    in my
    /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

    so ...... im sorry to ask... but what to do?

    Create a new yum.conf file and put the contents (posted by phoenixisp) into it.

    Then run 'yum update' or 'yum install name-of-package', where 'name-of-package' would be the name of the RPM package to install.

    I believe you also have additional replies in your other post on the forum as well.

    You are supposed to first download the RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt file, then issue the rpm --import command from within the directory you saved the file.

    cd /root
    wget http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt
    rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.art.txt

    fine then
    i created yum.conf
    if i try #yum update i get error:
    -bash: yum: command not found

    recap:
    so far the only things i have done is to add a line in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources
    and created yum.conf as described to me
    thats it
    do i have to wget .....
    tar -zxvf ....
    rpm -Uvh .....or something?????

    oh my lord my brain hurts

    In an earlier post, you stated that you had installed yum.

    If it is installed, then the executable should be in /usr/bin

    If /usr/bin/yum file does not exist, then you must not have installed it correctly.

    Yum does not rely on the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file, it uses the yum.conf file.

    Yum is a replacement for the RedHat up2date program, and IMO is better.

    Try using the command:

    /usr/bin/yum update

    If this still gives you an error, then you have not installed yum properly.

    so trying to update everything i encounter this:

    Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
    There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

    To solve all dependencies for the RPMs you have selected, The following
    packages you have marked to exclude would have to be added to the set:

    Package Name Reason For Skipping
    ======================================================================
    psa-7.5.3-rhel3.build75050506. Config modified

    Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
    SSHTerm-0.2.2-rhel3.build75050506.13 requires psa >= 7.5.3


    the whole point was to upgrade plesk from 7.5.1 to 7.5.3
    config modified???
    my brain really hurts

    First try:

    yum update psa

    That should update Plesk to 7.5.3
