[Unbound-users] a shell script to switch concurrent installed Unbound versions

Hi,

I post this because it might be useful for other Unbound users as well:

we at Men & Mice install Unbound binaries into
/usr/local/unbound-<version>, however the binaries are compiled to run
from /usr/local/unbound. A symbolic link must be set from the current
version installation directory to /usr/local/unbound.

This scheme enables many concurrent versions of Unbound to be installed
by the local packaging system (RPM, DEB, PKG). This eases the testing of
new versions and also a quick roll-back if needed to an previous version.

The script linked below automates the linking, it also provides a quick
way to switch back to previous used version of Unbound.
