Fedora 7 Update: mod_fcgid-2.1-3.fc7



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-0446
2007-06-25 16:25:10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : mod_fcgid
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.1
Release     : 3.fc7
Summary     : Apache2 module for high-performance server-side scripting
Description :
mod_fcgid is a binary-compatible alternative to the Apache module mod_fastcgi.
mod_fcgid has a new process management strategy, which concentrates on reducing
the number of fastcgi servers, and kicking out corrupt fastcgi servers as soon
as possible.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update includes a new SELinux policy package, which has both bugfixes and enhancements.

The bug fix allows the web server to create and manage the sockets used to communicate with FastCGI applications running using mod_fcgid. The previous mod_fcgid-selinux package for Fedora 7 did not allow this (due to changes in the way permissions are described in the underlying selinux-policy package) and, as a result, mod_fcgid would not work with SELinux in enforcing mode.

The new policy also supports FastCGI applications accessing data stored on NFS or CIFS shares (if the `httpd_use_nfs' or `httpd_use_cifs' booleans respectively are set), and making connections to SMTP servers if the new SELinux boolean `httpd_fastcgi_can_sendmail' is set (it is off by default). This is useful for applications such as the moin wiki server, which needs this ability for page update notifications.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Fri Jun 15 2007 Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org> 2.1-3
- Major update of SELinux policy, supporting accessing data on NFS/CIFS shares
  and a new boolean, httpd_fastcgi_can_sendmail, to allow connections to SMTP
  servers
- Fix for SELinux policy on Fedora 7, which didn't work due to changes in the
  permissions macros in the underlying selinux-policy package
* Wed Mar 21 2007 Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org> 2.1-2
- Add RHEL5 with SELinux support
- Rename README.Fedora to README.RPM
