Ubuntu 20.04 with hestiacp 1.4.0

I’ve tried to instal the new alpha 1.4.0 on my test server with Ubuntu 20.04. When I installed the package, the files were installed, but the installation script didn’t run.

[email protected]:~# dpkg -i hestia_1.4.0~alpha_amd64.deb

When I had a look in the folder /usr/local/hestia/install, I recognized the install script was missing the executable bit.

[email protected]:/usr/local/hestia/install# ls -la

drwxrwxr-x 5 root root 4096 Mar 4 20:21 .

drwxrwxr-x 26 root root 4096 Mar 4 20:21 rhel
drwxrwxr-x 4 root root 4096 Mar 4 20:21 upgrade

After I’ve set the executable bit, I was able to run the installation script manually.

How did you install it?

Over a 1.3.3 install?

No, installed it on a clean server.

It will not work do the following:

Go to hestiacp/install at main · hestiacp/hestiacp · GitHub

Download the installer you need (Debian or Ubuntu)

Download the package.

bash hst-install-{os}.sh --with-debs /path_packages/

Where {os} is your OS.

Sorry, I forgot the procedure for a clean install of a beta version. Now it worked. Thank you.

I’ve restored a backup from a hestiacp 1.3.3 server and got the following messeges during restore:

– MAIL –
2021-03-04 21:44:02 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Error: WEBMAIL_ALIAS is not defined in hestia.conf.
Usage: grep [OPTION]… PATTERNS [FILE]…
Try ‘grep --help’ for more information.
Error: type is invalid
Usage: grep [OPTION]… PATTERNS [FILE]…
Try ‘grep --help’ for more information.

When I edit a mail account, the “Webmail Alias” is not shown correctly. On the old server it was http://webmail.domain. Now it is http://.domain .

Let me check it.

Thank you for reporting following pull request should fix your issues + a few more

I’ve updated hestia using:

v-update-sys-hestia-git hestiacp fix/2021-03-install-issues install

The webmail-Alias is now created correctly.

During the update of hestia I’ve got the following errors when processing the user, where the backup has shown the errors before:

When I delete the user and reimport the backup, the WEBMAIL_ALIAS error isn’t shown any more, but the grep errors are still shown:

Can you post /usr/local/hestia/conf/hestia.conf?

There was an bug in the installer. And there for Roundcube was not installed run

v-add-sys-roundcube

Also run
v-add-web-templates
v-add-mail-templates
v-add-dns-templates

Thank you. After running v-add-sys-roundcube and v-update-web-templates, v-update-mail-templates and v-update-dns-templates the error has gone. I even can import the backup without any problems.

Had the same trouble as OP and thought it was funny the app first prompts to uninstall itself before proceeding with the install lol. In any case, i followed the install instructions for “–with-debs” installation and noticed that the was also still an error with the roundcube installation during the hestia installation. Something about unknown path. The installation proceeded but I went to run the “v-add-” for roundcube and the 3 templates that are marked as solution but I can’t find them anywhere?!?

As noted in my previous post, I had to run the three scripts v-update-web-templates, v-update-mail-templates and v-update-dns-templates, not the three scripts mentioned in eris’ post, which started with “v-add-”.

We will release a new test version soon. The old install script has some bugs that are fixed in the new version

You can also build the packages yourself:

can you make the firewall ban list page in tabs like 20-30-40-50 …
