Apache Worker MPM, mod_fcgid and ISPManager issues

Tonight I changed over from Apache MPM Prefork to Worker MPM, after learning this is generally supported by ISPManager that I run, I had already changed to using mod_fcgid for PHP, but hadn’t removed mod_php as this was going to do as I run Debian and it has to be one or the other, installation was fairly simple until I was greeted by an apache error upon first run:

Starting web server: apache2Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf:

WordPress 2.6.1 and 2.6.2 are out

A little late on the news here but I have upgraded to 2.6.2. Grab it here. View their blogs here for 2.6.1 and here for 2.6.2.

Both upgrades are not too necessary, but don’t break anything if you do intend to get them, it’s always good to check to see if you really need any upgrades anyway, just in case something does break.

The admin styling has been improved for people with right-to-left writing languages.
A gettext pug with certain PHP configurations was fixed.
Fixed a few issues with permalinks for IIS hosted blogs.
Image insertion problems for IE users using ‘Press This’ were fixed.
Small performance improvements with blogs that have many plugins in the admin section.
There’s over 60 more, check them out here.

The main fix in this one is due to a vulnerability in MySQL that can allow someone to reset passwords on websites (WordPress based websites included) and reset passwords provided they have an open registration system.
