Archiving of /etc/conf.linuxconf
- /etc/conf.linuxconf is made in several sections. They are archived
individually following the sub-system they belong. But they
were not archived "on the fly" when they were modified. Only when
an explicit archiving request was triggered from the command
line or the control panel.
Now, this is done as they are modified. This allows one to undo
some configuration later.
Control service activity
- The GUI now has sortable columns, so you can easily put together
active/inactive services when reviewing a server.
Module accountbatch: LDAP and extra fields
- When you setup an LDAP database for user accounts, you often wish
to enter more information about users: department number, The
accountbatch module is using the inter-module API acctextra to learn
about extra fields to supply to LDAP (Currently, only the ldapconf
module implements this API).
The module accountbatch is able to parse the input file and assigns
the extra fields to LDAP using the API.
Module accountbatch: smarter parsing
- The module is used to create/maintain user accounts from a text file
(usually produce by another database).
The module can parse a text file and extract fields (userid, gecos,
password,...) in various position on text line. It can now combine
and format them. For example, if you have some numeric ID referencing
a user, you can prefix it with a letter: a#2 will put a a prefix in front
of the second field of the line.
It can also be used to combine two fields. For example, you may have
the name and the surname as different fields in the input file
and used them to setup the gecos field.
Module kernelconf: semaphores
- The module has been enhanced to control the 4 parameters
limiting the system V IPC semaphores. They are notably used by
Apache. You may have to configure that if you are running
several copies of Apache for example. Virtual private server
users may reach the default limit of the kernel.
Module samba: more smb.conf fields
- The following fields may be managed by the module now:
In global section:
- bind interfaces only
- character set
In homes section
userconf --adduser command line
- The --adduser command line was expecting 4 arguments:
userid, group, name, and shell. You can supply the home directory
