Re: Upgrading blues

Should I stay awhile with 2.3, would it be a PITA to upgrade to 2.4 branch and BDB 4.6 ? I am no sysadmin. Appreciate your advise on this. TIA.
That depends on your OS and distribution. Red Hat derivatives can use
Buchan Milne's rpms/srpm which make substituting 2.4 w/ bdb-4.6 for 2.3
as easy as falling off a log; others who can't/won't use these rpms have
found configuring 2.4 w/ bdb-4.6 without being a dyed-in-the-wool
sysadmin a PITA.
I guess if you're using qmail you won't be using Red Hat or derivatives.
My own choice is, that as a Red Hat sysadmin I've installed Buchan's
2.4.7 (srpm -> rpms) on my FC test machine. After a few months'
experience of 2.4 I'd say that there's no way I'll ever again install
(even Buchan's) 2.3 on new sites, and there are a couple coming along.
