Moving to Debian 9?


#1

ee refuses to install on Debian Stretch.

I was very happy with ee, but has no updates for too long. It is time to say “good by”.

Webmin/Virtualmin is present for more than decade. I remember using it a long time ago, found the book about Webmin from 2003

I’m going to install it with this recently updated Nginx module. Wish me luck. :slight_smile:

Hello, I hope you will find a good alternative to EE, but the most part of apps available on multiple linux distributions are not compatible with debian 9 yet.

I have already try to upgrade some servers from debian 8 to debian 9, and EE was still working properly after the upgrade. The current limitation is the initial setup, because it require to adapt packages installed by EE with debian repositories.


#3

Hope one day, ee can live with CentOS


#4

That day might be soon enough. :wink: Keep following the EasyEngine blog.


#5

I tried to contribute on GitHub with few fixes, but nobody responded. For me is too much time to build complete distribution. Current build is broken. Have no working point where I could continue Nginx configuration is overcomplicated, too much repeated code.

There is nothing in ee4 branch, someone is fixing private ee3 branch.
