    Default Upgrading from beta

    Anyone does this? Any advice?

    Only advice I have is REINSTALL. I was told you should reinstall. I tried to "so call upgrade" and it didn't go well. Plus it's a great idea to start from scratch anyways. Never keep beta versions on your system. Always go into production with a CLEAN system. It really doesn't take that much time to reinstall and set your system up from scratch. It will make you sleep better.

    Just my 2 cents!!

    "didn't go well" - What do you mean?

    The reason I ask is that it's on a live server and I don't have the luxury of doing a clean install.

    In short it didn't complete the install successfully. Plesk doesn't recommend it either. Why did you install a betta on a live server?

    Long story, but basically I was at a point in late may when I needed to switch hosts. As I was doing this I purchased a new machine and had to colocate it as soon as possible. At that point I had two choices:

    1. Go with redhat 7.3 and plesk 5.05.
    2. Go with redhat 9 (with superior multi-threading) and plesk 6 beta

    Plesk 5.05 does not work on redhat 9 and I didn't want to degrade the entire OS because 6 was coming out very shortly.

    Also, hacking 5.0.5 into redhat 9 seemed like a very bad idea.

    Regardless, the beta has worked flawlessly since I ran it. I push about 8 mbits of data at any given time with about 60 thousand users a day and it's been great.

    So I just want to upgrade it, put in my license information and not worry about it anymore.

    we tried to update the RPMs on a test server and with the usual 'rpm -Fvh' we were able to upgrade the beta to the release. We haven't found problems with it yet... although we would never have done it on a production server
