Following a problem with the kamcmd htable.reload with Kamailio 5.0.1 (see
related thread for this), I have upgraded to the 5.0.7 level (with some
difficulties due to my specific environment).

My server runs the RHEL 7.4 distribution.


Now the upgrade is complete, I notice that that are changes not really


-          The kamailio-perl-5.0.7-1.el7.x86_64.rpm requires to install the
mod_perl module that doesn't exist anymore in RHEL 7. It needs to be
installed from the EPEL repository

-          The init script for kamailio has been changed from the old method
to the fully compliant method for system unit for RHEL 7 for example:


With the 5.0.1 level we have the "/etc/rc.d/init.d/kamailio"

With the 5.0.7 level we have now the


So my questions/comments are :


-          Why the mod_perl module is required between 5.0.1 and 5.0.7
(question posted in the attached message) ?

-          In the previous kamailo init script, I added a condition to start
MySQL before kamailio by adding this entry in the script : # Required-Start:
$syslog $network $mysqld

The new script contains the After command :


Description=Kamailio (OpenSER) - the Open Source SIP Server



Should I change the After line with this : After=network.target mysql.target
to have the same condition?


In all the cases, some documentation must be changed to provide more


Thanks in advance for the answers.
