Abyss Web Server X1 Update 1 released

April 4, 2003

Aprelium Technologies is proud to announce the availability of a new update of Abyss Web Server X1 (version 1.1.4).

Users of former versions are encouraged to upgrade since this update fixes many issues and adds the following features:

  • Improved SSI engine: SSI pages are processed faster.
  • Better compliance with Windows XP.
  • Minimum password length is now 5 characters.
  • Directory listing has been updated: displayed file names are no more restricted to 24 characters. Besides, the default font of the browser is now used for better readability.

Installation Packages:


Abyss Web Server X1 Update 1 is shipped with its full documentation in HTML format. The same documentation is available at http://www.aprelium.com/abyssws/doc.html in several other formats suitable for printing or online browsing.

Upgrading the Windows version:

To upgrade from a previous version, download Abyss Web Server X1 Update 1 for Windows and run the installer. It will detect the presence of an older version and will ask you to uninstall it. Once the old version removed, the installer will set up the new one.

CAUTION: Be careful and read all the on-screen dialog boxes. In fact, the uninstaller will ask you if you want to remove the directory where Abyss Web Server was set up. You must answer NO to keep your web site and your configuration file.

Upgrading the Linux version:

Download Abyss Web Server X1 Update 1 for Linux, go to the directory where the old version of Abyss Web Server is installed and execute the following commands (which purpose is replacing the old application files with newer ones):

mv htdocs/index.html htdocs/index.html.bak
cd ..
tar xfzm abwsx1.tgz
cd abyssws
mv htdocs/index.html.bak htdocs/index.html

If errors are reported when executing the first and the last command, ignore them: they occurred because you have no index.html file in the htdocs directory.

Special Thanks:

Aprelium Technologies thanks the beta testers of Abyss Web Server for their help and support.
