System Upgrades

Tonight all client servers for our Shared Linux Web Hosting users have had updates to a number of various software packages to bring them all to the same level. All client servers are now running:

Apache 2.2.16
PHP 5.3.3
Ruby On Rails 2.3.8

No major client-side changes or updates are expected to be required due this minor upgrade.

Part of the reason for this upgrade is to pave the way for the migration from MySQL 5.0.x to MySQL 5.1.x, which we intend to undertake within the next couple weeks. The upgrade to MySQL 5.1 will require rebuilding anything that “touchs” MySQL (ie: PHP), and we wanted to ensure all servers were running the same versions before hand.
