Automatic update? Should I desactivate it?


I always done my update with a manual intervention and I have no problem.

This morning, HestiaCP has done a automatic update. I don’t know why it has switch.

Should I desactivate the automatic update?


It is up to you …

Disabling should not cause any issues if do update regularly

In fact I ask, because I received a mail this morning: nginx restart failed
nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful

I finally checked the startup once I got up this morning, and ngNix had finally rebooted. But I may have had a service outage on the server. Hence my question.


currently a bug in renew script, this is a false positive, there should be no outage.

Oh ok ^^

Please try:

nano /usr/local/hestia/conf/hestia.conf
Set DEBUG_MODE=“true”

And check /var/log/hestia/debug.log

And hopefully it shows the cause of the error…


I don’t have a /var/log/hestia/debug.log file

It should be created after the first restart of nginx / apache2

Hi eris,

The debug.log is (now?) empty:

-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 0 Mar 24 05:22 debug.log
