Upgrading SpamAssassin to 3.11?

    I'm running Plesk 7.54 on RHEL3, and SpamAssassin v2.63. Due to CPU usage I'd like to upgrade to SpamAssassin v3.11 (or the latest stable release that won't break Plesk 7.54).

    Can anyone provide step-by-step instructions on how to do this? I've tried it myself and keep running into roadblocks (i.e. can't find the rpm on ART's site).

    Thank you.

    I upgraded to Spamassassin while also upgrading qmail-scanner and clamav anti-virus. But if you only wanted to upgrade spamassassin, the proper steps would be:

    1. uninstall psa-spamassassin:

    #rpm -e psa-spamassassin

    2. uninstalled spamassassin

    #rpm -e spamassassin

    3. Install spamassassin - Art has the latest. Make sure the yum.conf file points to his repository.

    #yum install spamassassin

    4. Then from the Updater in the control panel install
    spamassassin support and make sure that only the
    psa-spamassassin service is running.
    It should call the proper spamd daemon.
    I had problems with this as it started the spamc daemon which
    blocked all email from coming in, but a simple reboot corrected this.

    What are art's YUM repositories? I'd like to do this myself but the repositories that I'm using only have 3.0.6 as the most recent version.

    Latest release is 3.1.3, to install it, add the [atomic] channel to your yum.conf/yum.repo.d, and then "yum upgrade"
