Just a quick observation. This error:
2018-09-12 08:23:40 [WARNING] mysql_install_db is deprecated. Please consider switching to mysqld --initialize
Doesn't really make sense to me, as in the Ubuntu install script, these lines are present:

Code: Select all

    cp -f $vestacp/mysql/$mycnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf
    if [ "$release" != '16.04' ]; then
        mysql_install_db
    fi
    if [ "$release" == '18.04' ]; then
        mkdir /var/lib/mysql
        chown mysql:mysql /var/lib/mysql
        mysqld --initialize-insecure
    fi
So it tries to run both commands if version=18.04. Is this intended?

Another observation. Ubuntu 18.04 prefers you to use
systemctl start|stop|restart xyz.service
Rather than
service xyz start|stop|restart
Both ways used to work on 16.04 I think.

I also have the same question for MySQL. Is running both intended? Or just forgot to include 18.04 in the =!

The most disturbing thing is the fact that the team doesn't do anything to fix this. Not even let us know how things are going.

Right ... can I take back what I wrote on page 4? As the more sites I added to my Ubuntu 18.04 test server the more strange issues I got (failban service going down) and an ever increase of warnings and errors in the logfiles. And as I'm about to setup a HA-IP server farm, stability is superkey, hence going back to 16.04.05 LTS myself. Which thankfully won't go EOL until April 2021. On a sidenote: a lot of wordpress plugins still work a lot better with PHP 7.0 too.

Do have a suggestion to get some eyeballs on this topic. Surf to https://vestacp.com/sponsors/ and scroll all the way to the bottom for a magical link ;-)

It will go EOL in April 2021. It has been like that for ages with Ubuntu.

P.S.: After I saw your post on page4 I was really surprised. However, here you are :)

I am having problems as well in 18.04 most notable the fail2ban doesn't run at all, I can't connect to my mail servers at all and also webmail is not working either.
Shall I switch back to 16.04?

I never expected to say that but I believe that the core developers are not interested in the project any more.

Roadmap says that next release will be on “End September2018”. We are already on the last days of September and the last commit was 16 days ago.

I watch GitHub on a daily basis and didn’t see any actions related to the new features described on the roadmap.

However I am not mad about the new features. I am disappointed that core issues are not fixed (not even discussed by the team), security issues arise all the time (per Forum).

If you don’t have the time to maintain the project anymore, please let the community know. Maybe somebody else is willing to takeover.
