iTools 8.0.4 enhances Apache 2 performance

Santa Barbara, CA, November 17, 2005. Tenon today announced iTools 8.0.4, a
6th generation web-based administration tool suite for configuring and
managing Apache, DNS, & FTP. iTools combines open source technologies:
Javascript, Perl, and XML, to provide anywhere, anytime Apache
administration. The new iTools 8.0.4 is designed to maximize performance on
heavily loaded sites. The package adds new scripts, fixes a number of bugs,
and improves operation in key areas: access control, server side includes,
DNS, FTP, logging and cron job management. It also provides flawless
interoperation with its companion products, Post.Office and WEBmail.
Coupling iTools, with Post.Office (a powerful and easy to use mail server
and list server) and WEBmail (a web-based mail client), gives hosting
companies all the tools they need to support diverse clients on Apple’s Mac
OS X platform. The iTools Apache Dashboard simplifies and automates Apache
configuration – it shortens the time and lessens the expertise needed to
deploy new sites.

With iTools, web-hosting providers can automate hosting tasks and delegate
administration, empowering customers and lowering support costs.
Sub-administrators can manage their own name or IP-based web sites and view
their own logs, without compromising the privacy of the multi-server
machine. iTools’ secure, domain-specific, browser-based Apache
administration makes Apache on Mac OS X, the easiest Apache in the world to

iTools’ sophisticated, in-depth, browser-based GUI includes URL rewriting,
URL redirection, MIME type and Apache handler editing, SSL set-up, along
with a host of other Apache-specific settings. The new iTools 8.0.4
includes Apache 2, proFTPD with TLS/SSL support, DNS management,
sub-administration, and a suite of pre-packaged, pre-configured open-source
applications for blogs, discussion boards, photo albums, and more. In
addition, iTools 8 includes the ability to disable and enable a web site
with one click, for customers in arrears, the ability to hand-tailor a
default web site template to make setting up similar sites easy and fast,
optional use of encryption during browser-based configuration sessions, the
flexibility to restart various server daemons either manually or
automatically upon configuration changes, FastCGI support, cron job
management, MySQL administration via phpMyAdmin, WebDAV support, extensive
log viewing options on a virtual host-by-virtual host basis, and an
automatic system update facility both for iTools updates and updates to
add-on packages.

iTools 8 is $349. The companion mail server, Post.Office, and web-based
mail client, WEBmail, are available in special iTools bundle for $999. The
iTools update is free for existing iTools 8 customers. Upgrades for iTools
customers with older versions are $249. iTools can be used with Tiger (Mac
OS X 10.4), Panther (Mac OS X 10.3) and works equally well on Mac OS X
‘client’ or Mac OS X Server. See the Tenon web site (
