  • Debian Upgrade

    Anyone knows if Debian is being upgraded soon? My automatic updates on Lenny are failing and I am guessing the reason is that the support was stopped.

    Hi There,

    Check this out!
    Regarding CentOS 6 (and Debian 6), adding support for these relies on the next version of Virtuozzo supported in our Provisioning environment. It's currently in the testing phase in our dev environment. Once testing is complete and there are no outstanding issues, we'll be able to schedule the roll-out and upgrade for our clients.

    Cheers

      Virtuozzo

      So you're saying that Parallels Virtuozzo Containers can be upgraded independently of Plesk Panel?

      Thanks,
      Shane.

        Virtuozzo can be upgraded separately of Plesk, yes, but that's not the same as upgrading your Debian or CentOS version.

        Technically you can look at it like this:

        - Virtuozzo version is separate
        - Host base OS is separate
        - Guest OS (your container) can be upgraded but it is not "separate" of Plesk, you're still upgrading your OS which can cause problems.

        So in the background, we can upgrade everything except your container OS without affecting your service.

          I am confused a bit now. So do I wait for myhosting.com to update debian to 6 or do I do it myself inside debian as described in http://myhosting.com/forums/virtual-...n-squeeze.html ?

            myhosting.com will not be performing upgrades on behalf of clients since any upgrade can cause dependency changes and new file structure formatting. We will be launching Debian 6 very soon on new VPS', however existing customers will have to issue the upgrade command themselves at that time and be prepared for changes that may occur including creating backups. Details will come on steps to initiate the upgrade.

                Is there any news on the upgrade from Debian 5 to 6?

                Thanks

                  At this time, a reliable method of automating such upgrades doesn't seem effective. It is recommended to setup a new VPS and migrate manually.

                    Does that mean my current contract would migrate to the new VPS?

                    Thanks

                      For that, i would recommend you discuss it with support directly. Since i would recommend a time frame of overlap (one where both VPS' are active until fully migrated and tested), i can't confirm specifically how that would work. They're available 24/7 at 1 (866) 289-5091.

                        Yes I agree about the overlap. If I email should I use vps@myhosting.com or something else?

                        Thanks

                              My current VPS has only one important domain. So I think I need to set up a new VPS and copy / test the website on a dummy domain name. Once the testing comes back ok how will the real domain name be transferred from the old VPS to the new VPS and will this involve any significant downtime? If possible I just want to swap the dummy domain name for the real domain name ie for the real domain name to point to the existing data on the new VPS dummy domain rather than having to re-load all the data to the real domain name.

                              Thanks
