Chef Server 11.0.8-rc1 available for testing

We have a release candidate for Chef Server 11.0.8 available for testing.

This release fixes a bunch of issues that prevented you from changing the ports of services. So if you tried to do so and failed, please give this a try for us.

* [CHEF-3849] - redirect for login for webui ignores ssl_port
* [CHEF-3853] - checksum URLs generated by POST /sandboxes do not respect configured load balancer port
* [CHEF-3887] - Cannot change port of erchef
* [CHEF-3889] - tunables for postgresql in chef server 11 do not work when system has more than 64GB of RAM

Directions for crafting a URL for downloading the RC are here:

To install or upgrade your Chef 11 Server from the command line on Ubuntu 10.04, use these commands:
wget ‘’ -O chef-server.deb
sudo dpkg -i chef-server.deb
sudo chef-server-ctl reconfigure
