Gustaf, Thanks for your reply. Indeed, this is quite an old installation. I believe it was instantiated in 2001.

Option (1) is where we are today and we plan to run some tests this week. If the issues persist, I think we will try option (3) next as we want to get this done as soon as possible.

We had also considered moving this to NaviServer but were afraid it would be an insurmountable task. It's encouraging to hear that it is not too much work :-)

As far i remember, i spent more time on bringing NaviServer's https driver to its current state (A+ rating) than adding changes to OpenACS to support NaviServer. Current OpenACS works with AOLserver and NaviServer, essentially based on the result of [ns_info name]. Many of the newer changes are not needed to for functioning, but for improved performance.

The link [1] shows the changes in packages/acs-* in chronological order (starting 13 years ago) to give you a glimpse what's needed.
