View Full Version : A list of update urls

09-19-2003, 08:14 AM
Check this thread http://forums.westhost.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=5516#5516 it has to do with a phpBB patch and security issue. My add to the thread had to do with keeping track of the program on the phpBB site.

My thought is maybe we should start compileing a list of urls and e-mail mailing list that have to do with the Site Applications available to us through WH. It may be that there are updates that we would want to apply to the applications that WH would choose not to apply to all accounts. Also it may help us to catch security issues or bugs as a community. The more eyes looking the faster we may catch something.

Let me know what you think and where the best place to post such a list would be.

In priciple, a great idea, but whether it would just end up with you doing all the work... :)

We could use a Wiki or something that could be updated by many people.

Someone (Avery I think) here had an unofficial FAQ, maybe the list could be tacked onto that?

Its here:

Since I've had to be my own support staff for over 2 weeks I happen to have some links at hand. With the exception of MIVA I think everything else is freeware. Not a bad idea to check for upgrades or patches occasionally.
