iTools 6.5.1 now available with added features, security, & performance

Santa Barbara, CA, February 25, 2002. Tenon Intersystems announced today,
iTools 6.5.1, a new version of its Apache administration tools for Mac OS X
and Mac OS X Server. Tenon’s iTools Manager with its Aqua GUI enables
webmasters to set up and configure Apache directly on a local or remote Mac
OS X desktop. The iTools Manager co-exists with Tenon’s secure, remote,
browser-based administration, enabling webmasters to seamlessly switch
between desktop management and anytime, anywhere browser-based control. No
need for Macintosh webmasters to “learn” Apache; they can just use the
knowledge they have from years of being a Mac OS webmaster and Tenon’s
technology will translate their mouse clicks and table entries into terms
that Apache can understand. Apache is the most widely used web server in
the world; Tenon’s iTools makes difficult Apache tasks easy and Apple’s
Aqua makes it pretty.

iTools 6.5.1 updates Apache to version 1.3.23, BIND to 8.3.0, mod_fastcgi
to 2.2.12, sendmail to 8.12.1 and wu-ftp to 2.6.2, and includes a
state-of-the-art caching proxy server, integrated logging and log rolling
scripts, and mod_dav (for a collaborative, writable web using WebDAV
clients). iTools also includes a number of package installers: open source
packages to make life simple and commercial packages for added value. The
packages include: ht://Dig 3.1.5 (a high-performance search engine, now
with pdf search support), MySQL 3.23.47 (popular database now with a Perl
DBI module and an Aqua GUI for setup), Tomcat 4.0.1 (with the new Catalina
JSP servlet engine), PHP 4.1.1 (a powerful scripting tool, now with
built-in support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Openbase), WEBmail (web-based
anytime, anywhere, “hotmail” style mail client, Common Ground’s Qilan (a
web application construction tool that acts as a front-end to multiple
databases), MRTG (for live visual traffic load representation), and
Halcyon’s iASP for Active Server Pages support.

Tenon’s award-winning administration tools give webmasters more than just
ON and OFF buttons, but instead provide total web site control, extending
the webmaster’s reach to a level that far exceeds what is available even
with Apple’s new OS X Server. The Tenon tools let webmasters set up virtual
hosts, create URL Aliases and Redirects, create self-signed SSL
certificates and SSL certificate requests, create realm-based, host-based,
and cipher-based Access Controls, and perform a myriad of other tasks. The
combination of Apple’s new powerful OS, Apache’s strength and breadth, and
Tenon’s iTools for ease of administration, makes Apple’s new platform one
of the best choices for web service in the world.

Tenon’s iTools 6.5.1 is a free upgrade for all iTools 6.x customers. For
webmasters transitioning from WebSTAR the price is $299.
