on Tuesday announced the release of an update to iTools. iTools is a collection of tools to help support administration of Apache Web Server, DNS and FTP services on Mac OS X. (Tenon’s iTools has no relation to Apple’s now-defunct free online service of the same name.)
New to iTools 7.1 is the ability to support the older Apache 1.3 version, enabling users to toggle between Apache 1.3 and Apache 2. This is helpful for administrators who rely on tools that don’t yet support Apache 2, according to Tenon.
What’s more, iTools 7.1 also includes recent versions of software — Apache 2.0.47, PHP 4.3.2, phpMyAdmin 2.5.1 and MySQL 4.0.13, for example. The iTools Manager layout has been enhanced, as well, and disk quotas for FTP users have been added. Web log reports, MySQL setup, and bind syntax for the interface used to manage DNS have all been improved. Existing Apache settings are now imported automatically.
iTools 7.1 is a free upgrade for iTools 7 customers. Competitive upgrades from other products and upgrades from older versions of iTools are also available.
