Web Stack 1.5 release, fully relocatable distribution with an update tool.
By cvr on Jul 30, 2009
One of the nice things about Web Stack 1.5 release we said was that it's fully reloctable - that it can be installed any number of locations on a given system, with our without superuser (root) privileges. Unlike our default native package distribution (SVR4 packages or the RPMs), this fully relocatable web stack distribution is built with a cross-platform version of the OpenSolaris image packaging sysem IPS/pkg(5). With this distribution, you can update the packages with ease, using the update tool, which is bundled with the distribution. With a sequence of screenshots in his blog, Jeff Trawick demonstrates how you could update Apache web server using this tool.
