ISPmanager Lite supports Debian 9


ISPmanager, the popular web server control panel, now supports the latest version of Debian operating system. ISPmanager beta version 5.123.0 with Debian 9 support was released on September 19. The stable version is to be out on October 17.

You can install ISPmanager on the clean server only. We do not recommend upgrading your server with ISPmanager from Debian 8 to Debian 9, for it can result in problems with control panel performance.

According to BuiltWith, Debian is the most popular server operating system throughout the Internet.

Debian 9 Stretch was released on June 17, 2017 and replaced Debian Jessie that has been used for 2 years. The new version received a few important features:

  • MariaDB 10.1 is the default option for MySQL;
  • updated packages: Apache 2.4.25, PHP 7.0, Python 2.7.13, etc.;
  • unbranded Iceweasel and Icedove were replaced with Firefox and Thunderbird;
  • over 90% of all packages with source code which are built in Debian 9 create the identical bit-by-bit binary packages allowing to protect users against manipulations with compilers and assembly networks;
  • In gnupg package, the new modern GnuPG branch is used, which supports cryptography on the basis of elliptic curves, improved default settings settings, module architecture and support os smart cards;
  • streamlined procedure of receiving and using debugging packages.
