Release focus: security, usability, bugfixes and updates


  • added SSL support
  • added Python and Perl support for apache2 and mysql, so the P in our LAMP stack appliance now stands for Perl and Python in addition to PHP.
  • mysql-related improvements
    • include PhpMyAdmin (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL)
    • set empty mysql root password in live/demo mode (for convenience)
  • updated apache2 "it works" page to provide more useful info/links
  • added webmin PHP configuration module and increased default PHP limits (convenience)
