    Am trying to upgrade plesk for linux from 7.5.4 to 8.1 using autoinstaller from the command line on an RHEL4 box.

    Upgrade failed with following error: -

    Hello,

    try to run :

    rpm -qa | grep hotfix8
    rpm -e hotfixpackagename

    Then try to run the autoinstaller.


    You could however get the rpm.tar.gz package and make a manual install.
    (make the necessary backups first)

    Hello and thanks for your reply.

    I tried a manual upgrade using the rpm tar ball before trying the autoinstaller. Had to install the psa-api, psa-php-configurator, php-domxml and php-mbstring but the upgrade failed with a lot of messages about conflicts between psa-7.5.4-rhel4 builds and psa-8.1-rhel4 builds. After the aborted upgrade attempt I couldn't log in via the web-based control panel until I removed php-domxml and php-mbstring and rebooted the whole system.

    Have tried removing psa-hotfix8 but then got same message about psa-hotfix5. When I tried to remove psa-hotfix 5 got messages about it being needed by psa-hotfix6 and psa-hotfix7. Does this mean I need to remove all psa-hotfixes?

    HEllo,

    The conflicts between psa 7.5.4 and plesk 8 are not inetresting. You can force that because it will be updateted anyway.

    Thanks,

    Perhaps the conflicts I got with the attempted manual upgrade are also due to the uninstalled hotfixes for psa-7.5.4?

    Would the command to force the upgrade procedure be rpm -i --force etc.?

    Hi,

    rpm -Uvh .... --force

    This should be it.

    You should remember that every plesk can be restored if you have the home dir, mysql , the password files and the qmail folders.
    And of course the plesk key.--If I remember correctly you will have to have a new plesk key when upgrading from 7.xx to 8.xx.

    Thanks for your help and advice, I now have a functioning Plesk 8.1 server which seems to be running without any problems on an RHEL4 system.

    Had to manually upgrade from 7.5.4 to 8.0.1 first because couldn't find the rpm package for "psa-php4-configurator" in the empty third party rpm directory contained in the rpm tar ball which I downloaded from the SWSoft web site.

    After a successful manual upgrade (rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps etc.) to 8.0.1 I tried to do a manual upgrade to 8.1 but got an error message that awstats was needed. Again couldn't find an rpm package for awstats either in the tar ball package downloaded from SWSoft or the RedHat up2date server. Maybe a --nodeps flag in the rpm upgrade command would deal with this but I before risking that I tried to upgrade from the control panel which proved successful.

    I now just need to re-install the qmail greylisting patches which were lost during the upgrade and everything should be fine.

    Maybe I'm stupid but why is the third party rpm directory in the plesk 8.1 for rhel4 tar ball empty? There is an instruction on how to install the third party java packages in the release notes but I couldn't work out if there is also some similar command for obtaining any of the other third party packages.
