'Evening Andre,

Yep. It works there too in displaying the "Welcome to revIgniter!" message.

Did you have an eye on SELinux, the security demon witch make our linux servers very secure in a complementary way the firewalls are working ? Works perfectly on RHEL and CenrOS and should on Debian 6 too (right testing revserver+postgres install on it).

CentOS 5.6 works perfectly fine in about revserver+postgresql web driven apps :-)

On the other hand, i could't run such revserver+postgresql web driven apps under OpenSuse 11.3 + PG 8.4.7 nor OpenSuse 11.4 + PG 9.0.3 for yet. Did you went more successfully than me on this ?

Bonne soirée, :D
