Recent developments for Zope users

Posted in General by

We’ve just added a new installer to our control panel for Zope 2.10.8 with Plone 3.2.3. This is our first installer to use zc.buildout.

We’ve also released a Zope product to make it easier to use SSL with your Zope site. In the past, using SSL with Zope on our servers required you to tweak the code of Zope’s ZPublisher/HTTPRequest.py – our new product monkeypatches ZPublisher.HTTPRequest automatically, so you won’t need to touch any core Zope code. More information is available at:

Enjoy!

From July 30th unprivileged ports will be closed to the outside by default

Posted in Service change by

Some web applications are assigned a port number (for example 2345) when they are created. Until now these ports have been exposed to the outside world meaning that you could view your application via http://www.example.com:2345 as well as http://www.example.com

From July 30th these ports will be closed to the outside world. This means that while http://www.example.com continues to work, http://www.example.com:2345 will stop working.

You can open a ticket and ask for your port(s) to be open to the outside world and we will open them on a case by case basis.
