Hi all, As mentioned in a couple of posts, I am about to deploy two new servers, and have some time to ask a few questions :-)
So far, I have FreeBSD 4.10 installed and running nicely. It is virgin, not been touched ... yet. 1. Should I upgrade the perl version. FBSD comes with 5.005_03. I think the latest Perl distro was 5.8. If yes, do I install directly from ports? If yes, how do I ensure the old version is being ignored. I gues what I am really asking, is what is the correct upgrade procedure? I want to be able to keep THIS (FBSD) installation 'upgradeable'. I have done some things to my other systems (FBSD 4.9 and 4.4) that I have been told would break if I upgraded the OS. 2. What are the key items to adhear to when installing FBSD and other software so that the OS remains upgradeable? In the past, I have always used suEXec with Apache. Lately, I have been considering that it may be more pain than its worth. 3. Thoughts on the above please. For mail, I am currently using Exim (4.22) along with vm-pop3d, and Spamassassin. I implimented this combination so I could have truely virtual POP3 mbox's. I find little support for vm-pop3d, and I find Exim is alot of work to impliment (Routers, Transports etc). 4. Does anyne know of a better, still secure, simple method of managing virtual pop accounts that can still handle all the details? (Majordomo, Spamassassin etc). 5. What are the latest releases of Apache, Perl PHP Mysql that seem to play nice for everyone. I have installing software only to find that one relase of one thing does not work with another release of another!
