Upgrade Error

    I run FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE i386 with Plesk 7.5.4. When I try to upgrade Plesk to 8.0.0 I get the following report:

    Download file versions.inf3: 13%..100% done
    Download file PSA_8.0.0/plesk-8.0.0-fr5.3-i386.inf3: 100% done
    Check for components installation status
    Get Plesk product packages from specified source
    Download file psa_v8.0.0_build80060327.08_os_FreeBSD_5.3_i386.sh: ERROR: Curl download failed: The requested URL returned error: 404 Can't download http://autoinstall.plesk.com/PSA_8....8.0.0_build80060327.08_os_FreeBSD_5.3_i386.sh

    Plesk autoinstaller.
    Another thing that bothered me is that I had upgraded kernel and had previously Free BSD 5.4. Howver when I was attempting to use the Updater i was getting : "Error: You are using FreeBSD 5.4,

    but autoinstaller was compiled for FreeBSD 5.3. Exiting

    autoinstaller. ."
    Did not find any help on the net so i had to downgrade to 5.3 and yet get another problem
    Any help would be appreciated

    Upgrade PLeask Installer

    WE have the same problem.

    If you have your data recure you may try new Installation procedure of the verion you need to upgrade to, because accordingly to the following source:


    Pesk Self-Extracting Install Procedure
    workeees both way instalation and /or upgrading. if in step #3 you indicate an appropriate version of FreeBSD and proceed,. If you have already Plesk installed, it is supposed to prompt you asking to what exactly you need to upgrade.

    Anybody tried to fix teh problem this way?


    Prior to installing Plesk, be sure to have Perl 5.8.7 and gtar installed on the server.

    1. Log in as "root" and add the entry KERNEL_SECURE_LEVEL="no" to file /etc/rc.conf, otherwise installation may fail.

    2. Change your working directory to the directory where
    the Plesk install script resides; for example: #cd /home/admin/plesk

    3. Run the install script, for example:
    "sh psa_v7.5.4_build75050824.19_os_FreeBSD_4.9_i386.sh"

    4. If you have a previous version of Plesk Server Administrator installed
    in the /usr/local/psa directory, the install script will detect it and will ask
    if you want to upgrade it. To upgrade an earlier version of Plesk, please refer to the instructions provided below.

    5. The script will display a series of messages showing the installation progress. During
    this stage all Plesk components will be installed and properly configured on the server.
    Depending on the speed of the server, there may be times when the installation seems to be stuck.
    The entire install procedure should take only a few minutes.
    Do not attempt to cancel the install script. The installation logs all of the changes
    made to the system in the /tmp/ directory. The install script will backup
    any system configuration files before making the changes.

    6. When the installation is complete, you will receive a message notifying
    you that Plesk is now running on your server. You will be able to use
    Plesk on your host at https://'machine.domain.name' or IP-Address:8443/

    The default username is "admin" and the default password is "setup".
    Both are case sensitive. For security reasons this password should be changed upon initial login.

    7. Upon initial login to Plesk you will be required to complete the final steps in the installation

    8. You will first be asked to accept the SWsoft End User License Agreement.
    Select the appropriate checkbox at the end of the agreement and select Accept.

    You have the option to leave the license agreement active on the server if you wish to have it
    displayed next time someone logs in.

    9. You will then be asked to select the shared IP addresses from the list displays the whole
    range of IP addresses on the server. On this list you can select the addresses that will be
    used as shared for hosting accounts.
    Specify the full hostname in the appropriate field.
    To change the default administrator's password, type it in the Administrator's password input
    field, and confirm in the field below.
    Edit this information appropriately and click Ok.

    10. You will then be asked to fill in the appropriate Administrator information.
    Once you have completed this, you will be able to utilize the full functionality
    of Plesk.
