Hi all,

available through YUM:

These package addresses the following issues:

5106R-CMU 2.81:

This RPM installs CMU 2.81-0BX01 and should - finally - wrap up the issues 
that we had with this RPM during the last two weeks.

The BlueQuartz PKG (it's really only needed on BlueQuartz - not BlueOnyx!) is 
available here: http://www.blueonyx.it/index.php?page=migration-utility

Please note: Starting with version number 2.81 this PKG also installs an RPM 
that ties your server into a special YUM repository for future CMU updates. 
That YUM repository will only contain updated CMU versions for BlueQuartz and 
nothing else.


This RPM contains the BlueOnyx YUM repository config file. Starting with this 
version number it also contains /etc/yum.repos.d/0_WARNING.txt, which includes 
prominent warnings that discourage usage of third party YUM repositories such 
as RPMforge.


The GUI page for "Server Management" / "Network Services" / "Web" has been 
updated with new features.

Screenshot available here: 


With those changes it is now possible to configure the Apache config file 
/etc/httpd/conf.d/blueonyx.conf to furter define which Apache Options and 
AllowOverride directives are valid for the directory /home/.sites.

Typically .htaccess files in /web directories are prohibited for security 
reasons, as these can be used to re-define or override certain Apache 
configurational settings. To allow .htaccess files in general one would use 
the new GUI and would tick the box for "AllowOverride" / "All".

If you already modified your blueonyx.conf file by hand: Don't worry. Existing 
modifications will be imported.

With best regards

Michael Stauber
