Step-by-step Apache upgrade Instructions?? where to get


Is there anywhere I can get step-by-step instructions to upgrade
my Apache version to 2.0.45 ??? I guess that is the latest and greatest version and was updated due to a security bugaboo.....

I know that there is an /etc/httpd directory with all of the existing Apache files/stuff . Do I update over that or do I install a new version to say a /usr/local/apache2045 (as an example) directory and then make modifications to the httpd.conf file ???

I'm really confused


Thanks

Mike

2.0.45 is the latest. You can view the change log here:
http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.0

Here's the official method to upgrade from 1.3 to 2 (you don;t say your version):
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/upgrading.html

I would copy your /etc/httpd directory - it contains your config files. That way you can refer to them when setting up apache settings again.

This is how I would do it:
1) Copy your config files as a backup
2) Uninstall httpd
3) Install 2.0.45

Modify the config files using the old ones as a guide.

Okay - here is a dumb question:

How do I uninstall httpd ???? I'm very new to Linux, but have never uninstalled anything especially something that came with the RH9
distribution......

This should do it:
rpm -e httpd
