Re: upgrade apache and openssl

Hi Michael,

In my best practice, is do backups :
1. ignite/UX backup. So if everything happen on your system after upgrade the software, you can revert back to the previous one.
2. full backup system, can be done by fbackup commands or other backup management software (eg. Data Protector, Veritas).

Hope this can help you.

now working, next not working ... that's unix

Re: upgrade apache and openssl

Ignite backup is a must prior to installing software.

back up the httpd.conf files, the my.conf file and the openssl conf file.

The directives in apache 1.3 are not compatible with 2.0.x and you will have to take any customizations and manually put them into httpd.conf taking into account the incompatabilities.

You should back up certificates and web content, but all but the most complex custimizations should look good after you convert the apche server.

Prepare a backup plan, perhaps run critical websites on a temporary server while you thoroughly test the systems after the upgrade.

Have a written test plan so when you tell your boss everything works you'll know everything that was on the test plan at least works. The first thing people ask when things go awary, is why wasn't it tested. Don't fall into that trap.
