    It might be helpful if posters comment why they think what they think to.

    Yes - I agreed


    I must say Plesk products are NOT very stable and we spend more time testing thier products. I feel that we are paying them to do thier work!....


    Is this release 7.5.2 stable? Please VOTE!

    Personally, I think it is stable enough on RHEL3.

    Thanks Cranky!

    Did you upgrade from 7.1.6 or was it a new installation ?

    I've done both - quite a few times. I did hit a small problem on one server, but that was with MySQL4.1. If you're running MySQL4 or 4.1 be wary, otherwise I'd say you'll be fine.

    I think I've done upgrades from 7.1.3, 7.1.4, 7.1.5, 7.1.6, 7.5.0, 7.5.1, and from 6.0.x -> 7.0.x -> 7.1.6 -> 7.5.x. Basically I've done most combinations, and not experienced any major problems except as above - all RH9/FC1/FC2/RHEL3.

    Glad to hear it when well for you.

    reading on the forum:

    they were issues when upgrading to 7.5 with expand and sitebuilder installed on the same server

    Did you have these problems or are they resolved with 7.5.2 ?

    Also, did they fix the "SMTP required authentication option" ?

    It does not work on 7.1.6 and we are looking at upgrading to 7.5.2

    Any words of wisdom?

    You should be able to either remove expand, upgrade plesk, install expand-psa7.5, or just make RPM skip over the expand dependancy check and upgrade expand afterwards.

    SMTP-Auth worked fine on 7.1.6 for me, there'd be too many open relays for them to not make that work.

    I've just upgraded 1 server which runs sitebuilder - 7.1.6 -> 7.5.2 I believe - worked without a problem.

    We did an upgrade from 7.1.4 to 7.5.1 and ran across some problems with mysql, but after a few days it was eventually all fixed by our datacenter who did the upgrade for us. I think they ended up upgrading mysql from 3 to 4 to do the initial upgrade then back down from 4 to 3 to get the upgrade to work properly and even then, they had to add some tables that were removed during the mysql downgrade. It was a bunch of headaches initially, but no major problems since.

    I have Redhat 3 and upgraded with no problems. It couldn't have been any more perfect.
