1. Hello I currently have a server with redhat 7.2 running plesk 5.05 and I would like to get a new server with Redhat Enterprise 3 and plesk 7.

    How would I do this?

    Make a backup on the plesk 5 server using the backup tools, then upload it to the plesk 7 server and use the restore tools for plesk 7?

    You need to upgrade to Plesk 6, backup plesk 6, restore to Plesk 6 on new server, then upgrade new server to 7.

    If you're wanting to go to Enterprise, you'll have to do like me and just wait until Plesk releases the backup utilities for 7 though before you can upgrade to Enterprise. Plesk 6 only officially supports Redhat 7.2 thru 9 and because the restore utilities can't upgrade, from my understanding, you'll once again have to do a backup from Plesk 7 running on 7.3 or 9 and then do an install of Plesk 7 on Enterprise 3, and then once again doing a restore.

    That's the only way that I know to do it . . .

    Speaking of Plesk 7.0 backup tools, when are they supposed to be released?

    Thanks,

    But you also have to upgrade to RH7.3 because Plesk 7 will not support RH7.2

    Well, Plesk doesn't support RH 7.2 officially, but... you could try editing /etc/redhat-release and installing it anyway ;)

    Before you ask - no, I haven't tried it, but RH 7.2 and 7.3 are not that different...

    If you do decide to try, do it on a test server first. In every case, have good backups... and make sure they restore properly :p

    Hmm that would be great, anyone experience with this? Because i am about to upgrade all my servers to RH7.3 first. Upgrading RH7.2 to RH7.3 works for me but will save me alot of time (and downtime).
     
  8. I've got it figured out :)

    Redhat 7.2 server (Plesk 5.05)
    =============
    I got a temporary plesk 6 key
    Installed Plesk 6
    Did a full backup

    Redhat ES3 server
    =============
    Installed plesk 6
    Did a restore
    Upgrading to plesk 7

  10. Yea I had to change /etc/redhat-release just to get it to install

    I am running into this problem when trying to upgrade to plesk 7 now

    I Thinks it's better to upgrade to 7.3 first (local with CD).
     
  12. I'm getting that error on my Redhat ES3 Server.

    I'm having this problem now to :rolleyes:

    Plesk7 is not supported by RH7.2, i think it's not possible to install Plesk7 on RH7.2 .....
     
  14. I never said anything about trying to install plesk 7 on redhat 7.2?

    I fixed that error from another post
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Try to start MySQL first (shell commands begin with '#' symbol):

    # service mysqld start

    After that dump current database just in case:

    # mysqldump -Q -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa > psa.sql

    Now drop the psa database and restore it from daily dump (unfortunatelly today's changes will be lost):

    # mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` -e "drop database psa;"
    # zcat /var/lib/psa/dumps/mysql.daily.dump.0.gz | mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow`

    Now find the reason of the previous error in the /tmp/psa*.log file(s). Fix the problem and run "rpm -Uhv psa-7*.rpm" again. If it says that psa-7.x.rpm is already installed -- remove it with "rpm -e psa" command.
