TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

New TurnKey LAPP version (2009.02-hardy)

Sat, 2009/02/28 - 17:19

Release focus: security, usability, bugfixes and updates

Changes:

  • added SSL support
  • includes phppgadmin (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL)
  • set postgres password to "postgres" in live/demo mode
  • support configuring postgresql password during installation
  • postgres password encryption enabled by default (security)
  • trust "postgres" user when connecting over local unix sockets (convenience)
  • added Python and Perl support for apache2 and postgresql, so the P in our LAPP stack appliance now stands for Perl and Python in addition to PHP.
  • updated apache2 "it works" page to provide more useful info/links
  • added webmin PHP configuration module and increased default PHP limits (convenience)
