CentOS 6.7 + Plesk 12 Compatibility Issue
Posted by Julian Harse on 10 August 2015 02:44 PM

UPDATE 13/08/2015: Odin have now released a fix for this issue:

On Friday 7 August, CentOS 6.7 was released. Running 'yum update' on any CentOS 6 server should update it to version 6.7. However, this release introduces an incompatibility with Plesk 12. Running 'yum update' on affected servers will fail with dependency errors relating to the ImageMagick package.

Odin are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. In the meantime, we recommend that customers with CentOS 6 servers apply updates as usual to avoid missing out on important security patches. The following command can be used to apply updates but skip the problematic package:

# yum --skip-broken update

Once Odin release a fix for this issue, yum will be able to update ImageMagick to the latest version, at which point 'yum update' should start working as normal once again.

CWCS will manage updates for customers with the Gold and Platinum management service. If you would like to learn more about these service options, please contact our sales team on 0800 1 777 000 (+44 115 740 1234).

Posted by Liam Docherty on 20 April 2015 10:28 AM

Ubuntu 10.04 officially ends it support life on 30th April 2015. What does this mean? Well, it’s now unsupported and no patches will be released for the latest security issues and bugs found by the creators.

If you are running Ubuntu 10.04 on your server, your website(s) and other properties are at high risk of being hacked and corrupted.

CWCS advise that all customers running Ubuntu 10 upgrades their operating system. In some cases an upgrade of the OS is possible, but in others, potentially your server has to be upgraded too.

If you're unsure if this applies to you, or for more advice, contact the sales team today to discuss your options. CWCS is able to assist you with the upgrade.
