I don’t believe this to be the case, as the “Version:” line says 2.2.0, while the published RPMs are 2.2.2.

>> I am hoping to submit a PR to move the ‘opensips’ binary to /usr/libexec, rather than a common $PATH location. We have had a problem where this binary was mistakenly run, rather than opensipsctl. Typically, daemon binaries that do not generally get run by users should be in /usr/libexec so that they are only very intentionally executed. This should probably go in to at the very least a minor version change as it may break some people’s custom init scripts etc.
> I am not sure I fully agree with this. /usr/libexec contain binaries that should never be run as stand-alone. But that is not OpenSIPS' case, where you can easily start it in debug mode or smth like that. For example, a similar daemon is sshd, which is located in /usr/sbin/sshd. However, internally triggered binaries, such as sftp-server are located in /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server. This exec should never be executed outside sshd.

Hmmm, I’ve seen other applications ship with the daemon binary in libexec.. though I can’t recall what it was off the top of my head. It seemed a sensible thing to do. It would be unusual on a production system to run the daemon binary as a user, stashing it off to the side means it’ll only be run when very clearly intended.

I am curious, why did “opensips monitor” allow it to run - I would have expected that to reject “monitor”.. the man page for “opensips” has nothing about accepting an argument like that. Perhaps a partial solution to this would be preventing the binary from running if there are unrecognised arguments?

Great :)
