Ensim RPMs in WEBppliance Pro for Linux  3.5

Background: WEBppliance Pro comes packaged as RPMs that contain a) control panel frontend (this is the GUI), b) control panel backend engine (backend that communicates with applications) and c) applications in the form of RPMs (web, ftp, mail, etc.).

Ensim RPMs you should leave alone: Some of these application RPMs have an Ensim tag in the build number ("ensimized RPMs"). This denotes that Ensim has made modifications to the RPM for various reasons such as fixing bugs, adding additional security, or improving performance for hosting domains.  The detailed list of these RPMs is shown below.

Other RPMs that you can update: The non-ensim tagged RPMs that are shipped with WEBppliance Pro come from RedHat.  For WEBppliance Pro for Linux  3.5.x, the RPMs are from the RedHat 7.3 or RedHat 7.3 updates distribution. When updates are released from RedHat, you are free to upgrade these non-ensimized RPMs, as long as you stay within the proper distribution.

 

Ensim & Non-Ensim RPMs that you should leave alone

Why?

Comments

analog

- added additional info (referrer)

- changed default ownership of files to root

 

apache-[package]

- changed the fdsize to allow apache to handle a large amount of logs (i.e. for a large amount of sites)

- added environment variables (SITE_ROOT, SITE_CGIROOT, SITE_HTMLROOT)

- official security fixes (as released by RedHat and Apache)

NOTE: by default, apache has FD_SETSIZE to 1024, which translates for the ability of WEBppliance Pro to support around 341 sites (if all sites have frontpage and web logs enabled). The WEBppliance Pro build of apache sets the FD_SETSIZE to 4096, which allows support of 1365 sites. If you have obtained a non-Ensim apache, please ensure that FD_SETSIZE is set according to your server needs.
