Trying to install the deb file for particular program that requires apache2 to be installed on the system.
It needs apache 2.2 or higher. I had 2.0, so I uninstalled (well, I did a bit more than that, but it's gone).
Then, because on Debian/Ubuntu, there is no deb package for anything higher than 2.0, I had to do a "manual" install. Found the right file - apache2-mpm-worker_2.2.3-3.2_i386 and installed it.
All is well.
netstat -an | grep :80
shows port is running
a visit to my machine with a browser shows the default apache stuff.
So, I move on to installing my next piece.
dpkg -i filename.deb
It fails with an error indicating that "depends on apache2 (>= 2.2.0); however: Package apache2 is not installed."
So, it seems that for some reason dpkg doesn't know about my new apache and when the install runs, it fails because it can't find it.
Where do I:
1. bypass the check for the proper version of apache2?
2. change a file to let dpkg know that package is
3. do something that will make this work?
