Merging back to HEAD branch oacs-5-8 (using tag vg-merge-oacs-5-8-from-20141027).

  1. … 2547 more files in changeset.
making white space consistent in nsopenssl section, clarified a comment there.

removing wishy-washy statments in nsopenssl section, removing nsopenssl config for aolserver3.3 (no longer supported), adding example 'other db' configuration, minor clarification edits in nsopenssl config. see http://openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=3488424

Implements TIP #140. ns_sendmail and its rollout support are now deprecated. ns_sendmail is replaced by acs_mail_lite::send for backward compatibility.

For controlling the number of backup logs managed by the server (error.log) we have been using the wrong parameter (maxbackup). The right one is logmaxbackup.

  1. … 2 more files in changeset.
Removing duplicate check for setting maxupload.

Comparing the [ns_info version] against a.b.c is not possible. Instead

I use a combination of the version and the patchlevel to be sure that

we are running on aolserver 4.5.1; in order to know if the nscache module

should be loaded or not.

Checking version of aolserver for loading nscache module. Not needed anymore for Aolserver 4.5.1

- define pool order explicitly, otherwise the pools are used randomly

- set connections to pool1 to 15 (has to be at least maxthreads,

otherwise conneciton threads have to wait for db handles)

Removing slashes at the end of directory. Seems to have efect

on the mapping.

Changed libthread line to be non version dependant

Fix default mime type! text/plain for unknown extensions is a very bad

idea. Treating unknown files, many of the binary as text can only lead

to suffering.

Set the default config for a debian/ubuntu instalation (as agreed at the OCT)

Merged the 5.3 branch with HEAD. Look for tags with the pattern


  1. … 324 more files in changeset.
Added the option to rsync instead of tar and scp. This is useful if you have a large number of files in the content repository which you do not want to compress (especially if you have podcasts there)

a config parameter read used a hardwired server name; unhardwired it

  1. … 1 more file in changeset.
Normalizing string comparison operations into tcl 8.4 operations, enabling byte-code compilation for expressions and many conditionals

  1. … 360 more files in changeset.
Added ns_limits clause for aolserver 4.5

Added a timeout for the request in case the webserver hangs due to database connections

Updated libthread version. Make sure it works with OS X as well as per http://openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=486306

Reverted back to default run file, as I had previously committed my own run file.

Accidentally committed my config.tcl file to the repository. Please don't shoot me.

Bug stomp: added documentation to acs core procs that had no docs.

  1. … 1 more file in changeset.
Merged acs-core oacs-5-2 (currently 5.2.3) -> HEAD.


1. Bump acs-core package version numbers to 5.3.0d1

2. Would be nice to do a test install, wouldn't it?

  1. … 717 more files in changeset.
Changed db pool config to keep handles open forever rather than a billion

seconds. A billion seconds from mid-May 2006 is 2038, so folks were

running into the Unix Y2.038K bug a few decades early. That billion number

was originally picked because 0 (keep open forever) didn't work in earlier

versions of AOLserver. Early versions of the Oracle client interface on

Linux used to hang when the handle was closed, thus the need to keep them

open "forever". Turns out it's a good idea anyway if the db library and

the appropriate db driver for AOLserver don't leak memory. Both PG and

Oracle have been well-behaved in this respect, so we just keep the db handles

open indefinitely by default.

Set maxinput in nsopenssl module as well as nssock.

Unify the maxinput and recvwait parameters between nsopenssl and normal connections.

adding freebsd note from oacs-5-1 version
