    Plesk users on CentOS 4.1?

    I've installed Plesk 7.5 on CentOS 4.1 no problem, just updated /etc/redhat-release to "RHEL ES4".

    I'm not sure what to set my YUM repos to though. Will the CentOS defaults overwrite or use different versions of packages than Plesk requires? Are Atomic Rocket Turtle's packages specificically designed for Plesk?

    Just looking for a reliable YUM configuration for regular update checks...

    Thanks

    Hello,
    A.R.T. is now supporting CentOS 3 and 4 now. I've only used the 3.3 channel though, not the 4......

    To get this to work, /etc/redhat-release must be changed to:

    RedHat Enterprise Linux EL4 (Nahant)

    Then change this line in /etc/yum.conf:

    distroverpkg=redhat-release

    It all should work well then.

    Which repo did you hit that on? www or 3es?

    You can also use "4ES" for psa 7.5 on CentOS for my archives, since they are both the same thing. I'm just using symlinks to point CentOS4 to the 4ES dir.

    3ES is short for "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3"

    sample yum.conf

    Ok so does this look right for a yum configuration? I'm on CentOS 4.1 with Plesk 7.5 already installed and running.

    thanks

    Yep! That looks good. Bare in mind Im still populating that archive with packages, so you might run into some weird missing packages every now and then.
