Best Way To Update Apache?


i have apache 1.3.33. doesnt seem to be any bugs or security problems with that version so i was just going to leave it as is. but i got bored and i am thinking about updating it to 1.3.37. from what i read i will need to compile my own version from source since the 1.3.37 package from slackware was built on a differect kernel. so is it just as simple as configure, make, makeinstall or is there more too it then that when updating?

That would work. I would remove the old apache package before installing the new apache (make sure you back up configuration and site files first). The other possibility is for you to go here:

ftp://ftp.rdsbv.ro/mirrors/slackware...ource/n/apache

download the scripts, put the new Apache tarball in the directory, change the version number in apache.SlackBuild, and run it as root. The apache.SlackBuild script will build a new package so you can use upgradepkg.
