You can pull the one we use for RPM / debs from:
When you say "The script associated with the previous version no longer
works", is that where you got it from?
Note that there's a change in the generic unix tarball in 2.8.0: it now
locates logs, config, the database and so on within the unpacked
tarball, keeping it all in one place and meaning you don't have to mess
with permissions to get it working.
