v1.8

1.8.02

Released: 05 October 2011

Notes

This release is to patch around the current issues with the EL kernel crashes. Although tests have been positive on our systems it may not solve all issues for every server. Even though these crashes are not isolated to SolusVM powered servers, we have included a script (/scripts/sysfix) on each master/slave that can be run after each kernel update or yum update and will try to remove/patch any system conflicts. Please don't try and run this script on a server that is not powered by SolusVM, it may harm your server. You don't need to run this script if you haven't experienced a crash.
