I am/was running vpopmail 5.2.1 and want to upgrade to 5.4.3. I read the FAQ about upgrading and it seems pretty straightforward. I backup up the recommended dir's, downloaded the latest stable release, compiled with the same options I did when installing the current running version, did make, then make strip....Now, the touch times on /vpop/bin/* indicate the files were replaced by the newer version's files but I'm not so sure I got the job done. All seems to be working fine though.
1. How do I know definitivley that I'm runnin the newer version? 2. qmailadmin reports the older version on it's login screen. Is this a sign the upgrade didn't take?
No, its a sign that you didnt recompile qmailadmin like your supposed to.
I did the upgrade to overcome a bug I've posted about but never received a response on. The bug is that when I run 'vdeldomain', it deletes the domain fine but then the permissions on /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts gets changed to 600. Weird...so I though getting the newest release would be a good place to start.
