Release 0.9.29


Recommended Posts

Dear Froxlor Community,
you all have been waiting a long time for this and finally here it is. The first stable release of Froxlor to support Debian Wheezy (7).
Besides Wheezy-support, this release brings you quite some improvements as for example php-fpm per-domain php.ini support and customer-defined per-domain ssl-certificactes (if ssl ip/port exist) and much more. For all changes regarding the 0.9.29-release see also http://forum.froxlor.org/index.php/topic/12236-release-candidate-0929-rc1 (0.9-29-rc1).
Please be aware: after updating from 0.9.28 you should check the webserver-configuration "Webserver customer-ssl certificates-directory" as the defined directory (default /etc/apache2/ssl/) will be truncated by the cronjob. There are many installations using that folder - you might lose certificates, unrecoverable.

Changes in 0.9.29:

+ customers are now able to define ssl-certificates on a per-domain basis when SSL is enabled

+ Debian Wheezy support (configuration templates)

~ some minor fixes. All other changes, see http://forum.froxlor.org/index.php/topic/12236-release-candidate-0929-rc1

Important information: 

  • support for dovecot-1 on Gentoo has been dropped in 0.9.29 as Gentoo's tree does not include it anymore.
  • support for Ubuntu Hardy has been removed in 0.9.29 as it is unsupported since april 2013.

Download: 0.9.29
Update: Gentoo-ebuild and Debian packages (Squeeze and Wheezy) are now available.


Note: syscp sanity checks have been removed from the Wheezy package, you are on your own with removing syscp and moving your config which is what the package was doing / advised you to do.

the sid package has been removed for now, if there is need for it again we can reintroduce it, but for now, its gone

also we don't want to see "+2 upgrades" (eg. lenny -> wheezy) which was part of the reason of the change since we just expect you won't do such a thing... you won't, right? :)

Thank you,

Nice to see continuous progress on this project, and thanks d00p for all the work!


One point, however:


the defined directory (default /etc/apache2/ssl/) will be truncated by the cronjob



If this folder is truncated by the cronjob, wouldn't it be better to set the default to some folder which doesn't exist usually (for example /etc/froxlor/customer-certificates/), to avoid accidental damage? There may be people who don't read release notes before upgrading...
