1. Topic:

A bugfix release of Secure Web Server 3.1 is now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Secure Web Server 3.1 – i386

3. Problem description:

This release is being made to address two problems:

1. missing testcert target in the certificate Makefile
2. random intermittent segfaults of the server when SSL pages were
accessed by some versions of Netscape and IE.

In addition, there were other problems in Secure Web Server 3.1
similar to those in the regular Apache packages provided with Red
Hat Linux 6.1.

All of the above problems have been corrected.

4. Solution:

Some of these files are distributed in rhmask format, and may
only be used by individuals who have purchased Red Hat Linux 6.1

To produce installable RPM files from the rhmask files, retrieve
the rhmask files via ftp and type the following:

rhmask secureweb-3.1-1.i386.rpm

The original RPM is located only on your Secure Web Server CD,
and cannot be obtained via the Internet. Note: if you do not have
the original RPM located in the same directory as the rhmask file,
you will need to prefix the name of the RPM with the full path name
to its location (i.e. on your installation CD).

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

To restart your Secure Web Server, type the following:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpsd restart

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla
for more info):

6920 – Secureweb3.1-1 cannot make testcert
7910 – exit signal Segmentation fault (11) [httpsd Seg
