This software gets the last update (10.3.9) on April 15, 2005 and later has been replaced by a newer version of Mac OS X Server 10.4 Tiger.

Mac OS X Server 10.3 Panther introduced many features and improvements like updated Open Directory user and file management, which with this release is based on LDAP, beginning the deprecation of the NeXT-originated NetInfo architecture. The new Workgroup Manager interface improved configuration significantly. Many common network services are provided such as NTP, SNMP, web server (Apache), mail server (Postfix and Cyrus), LDAP (OpenLDAP), AFP, and print server. The inclusion of Samba version 3 allows tight integration with Windows clients and servers. MySQL v4.0.16 and PHP v4.3.7 are also included.

Today Mac OS X Server 10.3 Panther is 18 years old!
