Hi Everybody , I have some questions about FreeBSD in my mind and I have to solve all of them for using FreeBSD - for production server ... I red FreeBSD handbook and another FreeBSD book but I don't understand something
1) Now I'm using FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE I don't know how offen new release announced but When I want to upgread to new release when it available Which way is true to that ; Binary Update Mechanism to move from release to release ( using freebsd-update-1.4 ports is correct or Do you know any ports ) or Using New release CD and using sysinstall program ... 2) Using and installing programs with ports really easy and really easy to update ports with portupgrade because ports also have patches for vulnerabillity. But I'm watching the list some programs like ssh or sendmail are in base system and I have to track those programs bugs Does it enough to watching Security Advisories from www.freebsd.org and apply patches for up-to-date base system without sync. entire src. Tree ... 3) I know that not like linux FreeBSD is structured that the entire system is avaiable in source form . Does it means When I download or up-to-date the source via CVSup and use make world at this moment I have updated , patched and new binaries FreeBSD ?!! 4) Some books thay said that " make world also not a guaranteed process . I want to ask When I have high-profile production server Does it true to use make world ?! Whats the way to protect/up-to-date high-profile production servers ?!!!
