merged changes from the oacs-5-9 branch and resolved conflicts

  1. … 7833 more files in changeset.
- remove obsolte "--same-order" flag from tar, which causes errors on newer versions of tar

- add environment variables for HOME and LANG to avoid problems with sorting orders and/or with called programs that expect HOME to be set (e.g. dot).

- make structure somewhat closer to install-ns

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

  1. … 2547 more files in changeset.
- use last, but not first libthread (which corresponds to the newest version)

Adding config parameter ReverseProxyMode in order to let know openacs that it runs behind a proxy that handles encrypted connections and that it should always use the https protocol.

fix bug #3211

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.

Removing duplicate check for setting maxupload.

Set charset for xml so rss support works correctly. Without the charset set for the mime type it sends iso-8859-1 which is wrong.

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

Merge default mime type fix from HEAD

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)

Added logging to syslog

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)

Added more parameters as they were posted on the AOLserver list.

Ups. no cognovis should be there...

Added check for aolserver 4.5

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
