We have successfully set up our new CentOS 6.2 64-bit server. Migration of virtual domains is going smoothly with only minor glitches. I must say what a dream machine is VirtualMin and WebMin when you have to really "go at it" setting up and new box/domains. It's marvelous.
We used the back up restore function and it works well, though a cache table in one MySQL data base was corrupt but easily repaired with PHPMyAdmin. Also the back up doesn't seem to recognize or transfer the disk quotas and they were defaulting to 1MB or something ridiculous and some operations were failing because we could not write to disk (over quota)...and in one case no passwords were transferred, instead, virtual min use the old IP as the password for the primary owner/FTP user (wierd) So now after migration we carefully go thru all the settings (duh of course you should do that anyway).
But my question today is: we want to harden security on the box. It has Apache is 2.2.15 now but I see they just released a few days ago 2.4.1 and there have been major advances in Apache in 2.4 on many levels. I am "drooling" especially over all the security holes that have been plugged in 2.4. and the architecture changed and possibly we will get some speed increases over 2.2.15
I know living on the "bleeding edge" is not always a good idea, but since we are setting up this new machine I would rather go thru all the pain at once and then forget about it for a while, especially because it appears that 2.4.1 really meets all the PCI compliance requirements which is another key concern.
Will VirtualMin/WebMin run on Apache 2.4.1? Is upgrading so soon after release a bad idea? ( it is noted as stable) Has anyone installed 2.4.1? Any Insights? Opinions welcome...
