Hi there,

I'm trying to set up a Dropbox folder on my account using these instructions, but I get the error .dropbox-dist/dropbox: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.4' not found. Looks like the installed version is 2.3.4.

Is there any way to upgrade or in some other way get this thing running?

Some of our older servers (including the one you're on) are running RHEL, which comes shipped with glibc 2.3.4.

There are two ways to workaround this:

  1. Install your own glibc into your home directory and add it to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This is fairly hit-or-miss and is not supported by us (or guaranteed to work).
  2. You can migrate to one of our newer servers where glibc is version 2.5.

Option 2 is more work, but it's better in the long run.

Ah, cool. I think I'll go for Option 2. I found the migration guide, but I don't see how to pick a server when creating an application. Do I need to file a ticket before I can get started?

Yep, just open a ticket and we'll get you started.
