Upgrade 7.5.4 to 8.1

    Have anyone sucessfully an upgrade from Plesk 7.5.4 to 8.1.

    I have a CentOS 4.4 Box with the RHEL4 Version of PLesk 7.5.4.

    Is it better to upgrade from 7.5.4 to 8.0.1 and then 8.1 or can i upgrade directly to 8.1. Can i use the Cp Panel Installer or is it better to upgrade manually.

    Kind Regards

    I would upgrade incrementally.

    As always, backup your data and I think the updater will work for you.

    One thing to keep in mind is that plesk 7.5.4 houses the vhosts in /home/httpd/vhosts/ and Plesk 8 by default installs the vhosts to /var/www/vhosts/... This could lead to problems if you or clients have been using absolute paths...

    I do believe that the update now will retain the /home/httpd/vhosts/ structure so just a heads up.

    Good Luck ;)

    The default path already is /var/www/vhosts/ in CentOS 4.x and Plesk 7.5.x.
    However, if you had RedHat 9 or something, the path might have been /home/httpd/vhosts/.

    A fresh install, sure.

    I was just bringing this to his attention so he can successfully update his box ;)

    Go to 8.0 and then to 8.1

    I had issues going to 8.1 from 7.5.x on Redhat

    I'm in nearly the same situation. But 7.5.4 running on a Strato Suse 9.3 and thinking about an upgrade. - Thought about that few months ago as well but didn't dare so far :)

    Did you already upgrade? And did everything go well via the plesk updater? Step by step: 7.5.4 -> 8.0.0 -> 8.0.1 -> 8.1.0? :)

    Thanks, Spacey

    I have tested it on a Test Box:

    Upgrade from 7.5.4 to Version 8.0.1 failed with autoinstaller. I upgraded to the 8.0.1 Version manually-stop plesk /etc/init.d/psa stopall:


    [root@plesk base]# rpm -Uhv *

    I upgrade with the option nodeps and force
    [root@plesk base]# rpm -Uhv --force --nodeps *

    after the base package upgrade i installed the opt packages manually with the option rpm -Uhv without any problems:

    after that i installed the /root/plesk8.0.1/thirdparty-rpm-RedHat-el4-i386 Application (Tomcat)

    remove dummy-selinux-vz-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
    its only for Virtuozzo and install rpm -Uhv *

    remove rpm -e tomcat4 tomcat4-webapps tomcat4-admin-webapps psa-tomcat-configurator and install /root/plesk8.0.1/dist-rpm-RedHat-el4-i386/opt/java / with rpm -Uhv *

    reboot and install plesk 8.1 with the console autoinstaller ./psa_installer_v3.1.0_build061201.02_os_RedHat_el4_i386

    This upgrade works for me. We upgrade our Server on 2 March.

    I'm also considering to upgrade from Plesk 7.5.4 to 8.1.

    Do you still recommend going through Plesk 8.0 before upgrading to 8.1?

    It worked for me via 8.0... so if I do this once again, I'd go that way.
  10. radialhosting

    same. Go to 8.0 first.
  11. ps4you

    Yes, go to 8.0.1 manually(all components)and then install the version 8.1 with the autoinstaller on the command line. I have updated my productive Server on 02 March without any problems.

    Kind Regards
