    I just installed a new Plesk server on RHEL4. I ran up2date and it says it has updates.

    Some of the updates are components of Plesk. httpd, mysql and php to name a few.

    Is it OK to run these updates or will they interfere with the plesk installation. I am concerned that running some of these updates might damage the plesk installation.

    What should I do?

    Should I disable up2date?

    Thanks
    Omar

    Yeah, you have to be real careful in what you update. PHP 5 for example is a bad thing with Plesk. Visit the Turtle's site:

    His yum project is invaluable for updating Plesk servers. And he has rpms for Spamassassin, ClamAV and qmail-scanner for Plesk.

    Its safe (and highly recommended) to update your system from the vendors channels, especially with CentOS/RHEL, they use a very conservative OS design that minimize operational changes in the system.

    So if I have RHEL 4, I can just run up2date -u without worrying about damaging Plesk. I see it has PHP but not 5.0.

    Thanks

    That is correct. The only redhat based distro that has PHP 5.0 natively is Fedora Core 4, which is not at this time compatible with PSA.
