    Request: Rename "check_update.pl" to "lms_check_update.pl"

    A rather generic dialog popped up today on my macOS Mojave system - it said check_update.pl wanted to control my computer. Not knowing what that was, I did a google search for "check_update.pl" and found nothing useful.

    If possible, please rename the Perl script to at least suggest to which program / application the script belongs. General "setup" and "check_update" and "doit" type of names are in today's hostile malware-plagued environment not a good idea.

    Yes, these warnings introduced in macOS 10.14 can be quite irritating.
    "wants to control your computer"... slightly exaggerated. I'll have to
    investigate how we can mitigate these irritations.

    Just wondering if there are any updates on this issue? Was hoping to upgrade to Mojave but don't want to mess up my Squeezeserver as it is running very well under MacOS High Sierra. I couldn't find any ther posts on this.

    No update yet. But LMS should be fine anyway. Just allow it to "control
    your computer". What it really does is try to launch the pref pane to
    offer the update whenever there is one.

    Does LMS run with its associated Apache web server?
    Thanks much!

    LMS does not use Apache. It has a built-in web server.

    No. Though I don't understand your question, I know it's a no. Apache is
    not involved.

    I was thinking because Apple removed server functionality from mojave, LMS might be missing something like Apache web server.. Thanks for update.
