    I Upgraded from plesk 8.6.0 to 9.0.0 successfully, seems everything working fine, except the Postfix which seems replaced the Qmail, never had it before. Now when I try to start the service from Home -> Service Managment, I get tis error:

    ERROR: PleskUtilException

    mailmng failed: Starting postfix: [ OK ]

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    0: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/class.MailManager.php:226
    MailManager::execWithException(string 'smart_exec', string 'mailmng', array, array, string 'lst')
    1: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/class.MailManager.php:258

    require(string '/usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/server/restart_services.php')
    5: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/plesk.php:41

    I followed this KB:

    http://kb.odin.com/en/5798

    However did not solve the issue,

    Please advice

    Thank you

    Yes I am not familiar, I do the upgrades/updates from inside the Plesk admin Home->Updater, So How do I switch from there? I am with theplanet.com

    brujo, If I run ~# /usr/local/psa/bin/autoinstaller from telnet, will this start new fresh Plesh install or can I only
    update plesk and choose Qmail? As I said above this is a dedicated server from theplanet.com and they own the plesk license key.

    Thank you

    with the autoinstaller you can do install, upgrade Plesk or as you need switch the MTA from postfix -> qmail

    brujo,

    Thank you, I did that:

    Run the script without parameters

    ~# /usr/local/psa/bin/autoinstaller

    from http://kb.odin.com/en/5801

    and was able to install Qmail and remove Postfix, the Qmail server started normally and all mail services back again and working just fine.

    Thank you

    that sounds good, i am glad to help someone, Plesk 9 is indeed in my opinion just a beta which was published to early to the community for testing :-(
