Task Ref Affects Description Fix
Item11955 Installing & configuring Foswiki With new versions of the rcs tool (as shipped in newer Linux distros), attempts to access bin/configure results in an error message Argument "5.8.1" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<). This prevents access to configure. Fixed in Foswiki 1.1.6
ALERT! Untested! If you can't wait for the 1.1.6 release, try replacing lib/Foswiki/Configure/Checker.pm which includes distro:a04add64a907
Item12022 High-traffic installations at the end of the month At the end of the month, Foswiki uses inefficient code to rotate the event and error logs before servicing the HTTP request. If the log files are large, and the webserver timeout settings prevent the process from rotating the logs, then no Foswiki processes will be able to service requests. The site stops responding. Fixed in Foswiki 1.1.6
You can rotate the logs manually by firstly stopping apache, and then running a view request from the command-line, Eg.:
cd /path/to/foswiki/bin; ./view

ALERT! Untested! If you can't wait for the 1.1.6 release, try replacing lib/Foswiki/Logger/PlainFile.pm which includes distro:57d3d13c5c5a
