Great! So we can expect Plesk 9.0 on our VPS after couple of weeks? Also, do new versions of CP enhance or degrade VPS performance?As usual - it would be better to wait at least 2-3 weeks to see what kind of feedback will be posted on Parallel's forums. So far the only complains I'm seeing there are about inability to upgrade which might be a good thing
Past experience shows that upgrades of production systems shouldn't be done until first couple hotfixes will be released.
Depends. Some releases, we've had to wait longer for Parallels to push out fixes to bugs.Great! So we can expect Plesk 9.0 on our VPS after couple of weeks?
Another, "depends". Sometimes better, sometimes worse, sometimes no change.Also, do new versions of CP enhance or degrade VPS performance?
Wow! That was a quick replyDepends. Some releases, we've had to wait longer for Parallels to push out fixes to bugs.

Parallels is really hit or miss. You'll just have to keep your eyes posted on other people's experiences.
I am sure they have. Wait for Paul to respond on that one. I would say, given his statement to hold off on the upgrade, that as usual, issues were experienced.Has KnownHost deployed it on some of it's test servers and seen how Plesk 9 is like? Performance wise, stability or compatibility wise?
OK we get the point. Any specifics or a bit detailed info of your HORRIBLE experience would help us better.Well I took the plunge to upgrade to 9.0 and it failed miserable. 9.0 is HORRIBLE. If you're thinking of upgrading, run FAR FAR AWAY!
I'll be making the (I hope painless) migration to cPanel.
Let me see if I can give a few details. The upgrade itself came back and reported failure. After I received the e-mail I noticed all the sites were inaccessible. I ssh'd into the box, and saw that httpd wasn't running...started httpd and sites came back up, but the control panel was still inaccessible. I was able to hit the Virtuzzo control panel, and restarted psa...now the Plesk control panel was now accessible, I was getting mysql errors related to tables missing.OK we get the point. Any specifics or a bit detailed info of your HORRIBLE experience would help us better.
Any official word on this from KnownHost?
At 8:58PM they replied with:[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]It seems that plesk upgrade has crashed the currently installed plesk package.
The following could cause the installation failure:
Packages "psa-8.6.0-cos4.build86080722.02.i586 (s 0x9418b68 source=0x9179520 P:3868 R:123)" and "psa-9.0.0-cos4.build90081117.17.i586 (s 0x919f1b8 source=0x9179520 P:3632 R:85)" cannot be installed at the same time
Not all packages were installed.
Please, contact product technical support.

Now the control panel is accessible. After verifying that my domains were working I found that one domain was still not working. The TLD was accessible, but a subdomain is actually configured to use a different IP address...the httpd.conf had been rewritten. So I had to edit that file again to make the subdomain and the wildcard domains work like they should.[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]Plesk upgrade procedure was finished and you now have (still buggy) Plesk 9 installed on your system, please check.
So that part of it doesn't even function!ERROR: PleskBadURIException
