New Applications
Updates are now available for the following applications. These versions are available for all customers on a CentOS plan. If you are not on a CentOs plan you might consider making the move. Contact us for more information. Applications can be upgraded from the System tab of your Control Panel. Please read the eApps Release Notes before you upgrade your application versions! For info on how to upgrade in the eApps Control Panel see

Spam Assassin 3.2.3 - This new release has a number of bug fixes and new features. For more info visit the official release notes. Most important are the fixes we have put in for our packaged application of Spam Assassin. All customers on CentOS plans are strongly advised to upgrade to this version. Due to the fact that version 3.2.3 requires some additional Perl Modules, we must update your plan to make this available to you. Please send an email to with "Spam Assassin 3.2.3" in the subject and we will make these modules available.

The key changes are:
  1. Removed Spam Rules set. We had high hopes for the Spam Rules set but in hindsight this add on was designed for large servers, not smaller VPS servers. We reverted to the standard Spam Assassin rules set which is very effective and consumes significantly less resources.
  2. Added a Cron job to update the standard Rules set nightly at midnight Eastern time zone.
  3. Fixed the Vilter error state process. Sendmail will continue to deliver mail even if the Vilter fails due to very high volumes of mail. The Vilter will automatically be restarted if  it fails.
  4. Outbound mail is now white listed and will not be flagged as SPAM.
Please Note: SPAM ASSASSIN itself will consume at least 20 MB of memory, and considerably more if there is a heavy flow of mail. We do not guarantee SPAM ASSASSIN to be the ideal solution for all plans and usage.  You may need to consider our other SPAM fighting tools or even third party SPAM services, such as Postini.

Zend Optimizer 3.3.0a - The Zend Optimizer is a free application that runs the files encoded by the Zend Guard, while enhancing the performance of PHP applications. This version corrects a serious problem with the implemention of previous versions in the eApps Hosting environment. All customers that want to use Zend Optimizer are strongly advised to upgrade to this version. Zend Optimizer requires PHP 5.

Mod_jk 1.2.25 - This version of the Apache-Tomcat connector fixes a number of bugs. We recommend that all customers upgrade to this version. Please see the official change log for more information.
