Just curious. Why do you decided to move from lighttpd to nginx ? By the way, the webGUI looks clean and clear. Just upgraded from 2.2.6-RELEASE in a lab environment. Working well so far. Great job.

Thanks! We moved away from lighttpd primarily because of the problems it kept inducing, their release quality hasn't been great lately. Search for lighttpd crash on here and you'll see. nginx also offers some functionality we may take advantage of in the future, like reverse proxying.

Much rejoicing. Looks really great! I just happened by today wondering about the 2.3 roadmap and BAM! Serendipity. It'll take a while to get used to the pretty new interface.

A bold decision to use pkg packaged base system when FreeBSD itself hasn't yet started using it on release versions.

Thank you ! To take advantages from reverse proxy I use the SQUID3 pkg. So as you say, now it can be done using nginx too ? I'm right ? Just thinking about the new possibilities. Best Regards.

You are too fast.

The issue with IPv6 jokes is that almost no one understands them and no one is using them yet.

Perhaps you're right. Anyway, I'll play with the configuration files to see what can be done, just for fun.

Wow, that came as a surprise, nice!

Though, i really can't update with that many packages removed, I'll stay on the safe side until more gets fixed (i hope).

I just installed
Code: [Select]
2.3-RELEASE (amd64)
built on Mon Apr 11 18:10:34 CDT 2016
FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE

The system is on the latest version.

And I got this message after the install
Code: [Select]

General

    Package nut does not exist in current pfSense version and it has been removed. @ 2016-04-15 08:27:19


What is now used to control a battery backup? I don't see anything in the list of install packages not even apcupsd.

Comments like this are completely unhelpful trolling. Please post details of what went wrong in the Installation and Upgrades section. Without that, there is no chance for the devs and the volunteers here to fix the problem.
