    Plesk: 7.5.6
    Perl: v5.8.6 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread

    Hi, just checking task manager on my server and I've noticed 2 instance of perl.exe using a fair amount of RAM (around 2Gb).
    This process is Spamassassin, I start-stop Spamassassin and RAM down.
    What I can do? I dont wanna update Plesk :)

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi, Glaucio.

    Perl upgrade is not a key point in solving your problem. In 7.6.1 and up spamd (service, that runs inside perl.exe process, you noted before and part of original Spamassassin distribution) replaced with SWsoft's own solution, that is optimized to run faster on Windows. That replacement is bound tightly to 7.6.1, and there is no known way to use it without upgrading to 7.6.1 or newer.

    Really, i thinks you will have less troubles with Plesk upgrade, than with what i say, but you can try to upgrade spamassasin:

    I assume you have backups prior to proceed, due to YOU REALLY MAY NEED THEM TO GET ANYTHING WORKING AGAIN.

    Upgrade Perl with Last version, available from ActiveState.

    Follow instructions at:

    http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/InstallingOnWindows?highlight=(windows)
    and
    http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/SpamdOnWindows?highlight=(windows)


    To make spamassassin and spamd run on top of new perl.

    Note:
    You should place spamd file in the same location, as it was placed by plesk installer.

    Note, that this configuration was NEWER TESTED by Swsoft, or i think any others and if you will perform such modification you probably will need restore backups, you made, or call for, i think paid support, either of what will take a while.

    And, PLEASE, DO NO DO THIS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU DOING.

    kirill, i believe you dramatize this situation. there are many success stories with upgrade plesk 7.5.x up to 7.6.1.
    moreover swsoft suppose to release update for 7.6.1 soon.

    001hosting, of course you should backup your data before upgrade anyway.
