You keep identifying the shortcomings of Owl. Yes, we don't currently have a web server, nor an RDBMS, included with Owl. We use some custom "unofficial" packages when we install these ourselves. You may do one of the following: 1. Use Owl as an OpenVZ host system, running containers with other Linux distros (e.g., CentOS 6 works) when you need functionality not included in Owl. In cases where Owl's functionality is sufficient, use it in the corresponding OpenVZ containers. 2. Do custom builds of the additional software from sources, e.g. installing under /usr/local or /opt. 3. Use third-party packages, such as NetBSD pkgsrc (this also means building from source, but you get packages): http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/pkgsrc 4. Use Gremlin's or/and Croco's packages: http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/packages Note that although these are by Owl contributors, these packages are not Openwall official. > And I have no idea about backup programs. On many of our own installs, we use tar incremental backups over SSH. Unfortunately, we have not brought the corresponding scripts to a release-able state - perhaps we should. Alexander
