    If you're already using 7.5.3 though, then these notes may not help.

    >What's new in Plesk v.7.5.3 build 75050509.14

    You know what is Release Name 75050509 ? It-s 7.5 Plesk From 2005 May 9 ^)

    I have fresh install of this build. Updater ask me to install new updates. More new updates that you big list ^) But no description avialable
  7. justyxxxx

    justyxxxx Guest

    Well, if you already have the build release notes that I posted and the new build is not listed in their release notes, then I don't know what the updates are.

    However, since you're already at 7.5.3, then I would think that these are either security patches and/or hotfixes.

    I doubt if they would've released an additional update to the current version if it wasn't primarily for bugs and/or security issues.
  8. Osmolovsky

    Osmolovsky Guest

    I think that this update contains updates and security patches too.
    But i realy want to know what will be changed in details. ^) Because if they fix some things in webmail - i need to check webmail for working after update, if they fix smth else - i need to check it for working after upgrade ^) Otherwise I have a chance to have production server with clients that cannot work ^)

    Filter support is disabled on this system.

    After the upgrade to 7.5.3, I logged into webmail and my filtering rules are no longer active, and I don't see where I set them back to filtering. Clicking on "filters" now displays:

    Filter support is disabled on this system.

    What am I overlooking?

    Here's the log from the hotfix. Looks like a couple permissions fixes, a config fix for pop3/imap, and one other thing.

    When I extracted the contents of the patch to a temp folder, I noticed that the following files were replaced:


    So they rebuilt php for the regular webserver, and replaced Agent-UI, fixed some file permissions, and adjusted something in the pop3/imap configs.
