Firewall

Postby zarthan » Mon May 03, 2010 1:41 am

When I was restarting mailcleaner after the upgrade I was reminded of a longstanding question I have had and just forgotten to ask. I do not understand the logic of having the firewall as the first daemon to shut down or the last one to start. Perhaps I am just a little paranoid but . . .

Given that it is just switching two lines is there any issues with making the change??

Upgrade went well.

Thanks

Hello,

the reason is that the firewall configuration depends on other information that can only be provided by other processes (mainly mysql). So it has to be starter after them.
I think that starting it after the slave database should be fine, but this will have to be tested. If you have any feedback, please feel free to share !

For the problem, I know this would be better to have it started first, but on the other hand, MailCleaner should not be restarted very often and then the exposure time should be really small. But I agree it does exists.
