Tenon iTools is a different breed of Internet server suite. iTools 9 combines the rock-solid reliability of Apache 2 with the ease of use of Mac. This version of iTools 9 is as innovative as the computers that run it. And whether you're a Mac user who's upgrading, a Windows user who's looking at switching to the Mac, or a UNIX user who loves the idea of using server software like Apache on top of a state-of-the art BSD UNIX implementation, this is the server suite for you.

iTools 9 supports remote, web-based administration for Web sites, ftp and dns, and let's you:

Suggest its easier to get Mac OS X 10.4 Server which has all these features, plus more.

The current version of Server has similar GUI goodness (better than prior versions).

If you wait for 10.5 Server you will get even more features such as Podcast Producer and a Calendar Server.

I could not disagree more with the previous reviewer. For "newbies" iTools is -exactly- what's needed, unless you've got tons of time on your hands, and a strong geeky streak. Apache is "non-trivial" to control, and if you're doing anything more than the barest essentials, iTools is a delight.

You've got to understand that Apache server is a complex piece of software. iTools puts a friendly face on it, and more importantly, keeps you from screwing up intricate manipulations done by hand. I resisted because of the price, for years, in fact. But now that I have it, I wondered at my stupidity in delaying.

There's no free lunch, and iTools isn't bullet-proof, but it's a darned site better than "Apache Raw" IMHO.

I don't mean to offend the developer of this product but, I find it easier to maintain these services through the configurations they provide than through this. The problem is that when I started using this software I knew nothing about the services I was controlling, I just knew I wanted to run them and run them easily. After the first couple of times that iTools couldn't boot cause of random syntax errors. I found myself doing what I should have in the first place. RTFM on the services themselves. I thought there would come a point that I'd go back to trying itools once I had a grasp on the services but I'm not quite there yet and it seems development has halted. TO ALL NEWBIES LOOKING FOR A QUICK START THIS IS NOT IT >>> KNOWLEDGE IS ACTUALLY REQUIRED TO USE THIS PRODUCT >>> LIKE ANYTHING ELSE IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CONFIGURATION OPTIONS ACTUALLY DO, IT WON'T MATTER IF YOU ARE PUTTING THEM INTO A TERM WINDOW OR A NICE INTERFACE YOU ARE GOING TO SCREW SOMETHING UP!

iTools 7 installs in a separate place from Apple's delivered Apache. We backup some key Apple Apache files. If you have already configured your Apache, iTools can pick up the existing configuration.

By default, we install and use Apache 2. If desired, you can toggle back and use Apple's Apache 1.3.

Uninstalling using a script, restores your original Apache settings. Any customer who has difficulty is urged to phone Tenon for help. iTools is a fifth generation system and does not mess up systems. We encourage the first reviewer to contact us.

iTools is a solid piece of work. I've been using it for 4 months in a university environment without a hitch. Install goes smoothly - and when it hiccuped on setting, tech support worked it out with me on the phone in 15 minutes. Managing php and mysql is easy, and the built in web stats are powerful enough for our use.
