Nginx packages updated to 1.0.2

After MySQL and Redis, it’s Nginx’ turn : version 1.0.2 has been released on May 10., bringing some minor changes and bugfixes.

Its packages are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” and Debian 5.0 “Lenny” in amd64 and i386 flavours.


Redis 2.2.7 is out

Dotdeb packages of Redis for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” have been updated to version 2.2.7. Here are the release notes.


MySQL 5.1.57 is out

MySQL 5.1.57 packages are now available on Dotdeb :

  • for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” and Debian 5.0 “Lenny”
  • for the amd64 and i386 architectures

The corresponding Pinba storage engine has also been rebuilt (Squeeze only).

And, as usual, please read the Changelog of this maintainance release before upgrading.



Nginx 1.0.1 is out

Nginx 1.0.1 has been released on May 3rd, bringing some changes and bugfixes.

It is now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” and Debian 5.0 “Lenny” in amd64 and i386 flavours.

Please note that the nginx-extras package now supports Passenger. I hope Ruby on Rails users will enjoy.


Rails user? Dotdeb now supports Passenger

Let me introduce Passenger :

Phusion Passenger™ — a.k.a. mod_rails or mod_rack — makes deployment of Ruby web applications, such as those built on the revolutionary Ruby on Rails web framework, a breeze. It follows the usual Ruby on Rails conventions, such as “Don’t-Repeat-Yourself”.

  • Deployment is only a matter of uploading application files. No Ruby (on Rails)-specific server configuration required!
  • Supports both the industry standard Apache web server and the fast and lightweight Nginx web server.
  • Zero maintenance. No port management, server process monitoring or stale file cleanup required. Errors are automatically recovered whenever possible.
  • Designed for performance, stability and security. Phusion Passenger should never crash Apache even in case of crashing Rails applications.
  • Well-documented, for both system administrators and developers!


I’m glad to announce that Dotdeb now provides Passenger 3.0.7 packages for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” and Debian 5.0 “Lenny” in amd64 and i386 flavours and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

The installation is very easy :

  • your Apache 2.2 server will support Passenger by installing the libapache2-mod-passenger package
  • Nginx will be updated to the 1.0.1 version and it will support Passenger in the nginx-extras package

Have fun!
