That totally helped thanks.
But before I install I noticed that there is a specific set of instructions for upgrading apache as opposed to installing a whole version which was the steps I was following.
What would be the better option to do then?
should I do what the apache document says to do during an upgrade or should I just do a whole new install with the upgraded version of apache?
Here are the instructions for upgrading in the apache docs
to upgrade across minor versions, start by finding the file config.nice in the build directory of your installed server or at the root of the source tree for your old install. This will contain the exact configure command line that you used to configure the source tree. Then to upgrade from one version to the next, you need only copy the config.nice file to the source tree of the new version, edit it to make any desired changes, and then run:
$ make install
$ PREFIX/bin/apachectl -k graceful-stop
$ PREFIX/bin/apachectl -k start
Should I just do these steps? I'm guessing I still have to download that newer version of apache and then run this or?
