Just Got A RaQ4r Server
Hi....I am a bigtime newbie and just got my first RaQ4r Cobalt server.
The company I am working for is letting me have a go at updating it and installing some software on it.
I am a mid-range linux administrator....worked with Apache web servers that were installed on desktop machines....so I know my way around an Apache web server all right....
So, where do I start looking for all the updates I have to install.
My list of installed software only shows these things:
- Relational Database Server and Client tools by InterBase.
- Release V6.0
- Cobalt OS Release 6.0
- RaQ4-en-Security Release 0.0.1-6453
- RaQ4R-All-System Release 0.0.1-6618
So, with that in mind, where do I find all the updates, and how exactly do I install them.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
Voiding warranties is what I do best.
So, the first link you mentioned states to apply all packages, starting at the bottom of the page.
Are there any common problems that I should be aware of during the installation of any of the packages listed?
i usually wait a week or so before installing a new patch as they may have some bugs in them.
After you install 13323, comment out the AllowChmod line in /etc/proftpd.conf, and chmod 600 /etc/sasldb (if you have it.)
Also, not sure if it's related to a patch or NeoMail, but you may have to chmod 1777 /var/spool/mail as well.
I think that's it.
Its always best and saftest to grab the packages right in SSH/Telnet to the server, then installing it afterwards via the control panel and not by using the http download thing there.
