Question Mandrake 9.2 : Upgrading Apache from 2.0.47 to 2.0.48


I've just installed Mandrake 9.2 and Apache 2.0.47 along with all the web components. I then noticed, 2.0.48 is the recommended version of Apache,

I downloaded the httpd-2.0.48.tar.gZ file and installed it, following the instructions in the install file and installed it into the 2.0.47 directory.

./configure --prefix=/etc/httpd/
apachectl start

However, it still starts up 2.0.47.

Has any1 else come across this problem ?

Thanks in advanced.

you must remove the previous version or your system will just turn into a horrible crappy mess, it's not a "problem" in this sense, you are simply not using the system correctly. why are you compiling from source anyway? i'd strongly recommend "make uninstalling" what you've put in there are correctly upgrading ith a suitable rpm:

Unhappy Difference compiling from source or rpm

Thanks Acid...

I'm a newbie.... Can anyone tell me the difference from compiling from Source and rpm ?

I've un-installed 2.0.47 and tried from the rpm --install <file> And it works fine. However, if i want to install other apache additions, it would have to find each module indivually correct ? Also, it uses the "httpd2.conf" file instead of the "http.conf".. is there a difference ?

I also tried installing apache 2.0.48 from source after 2.0.47 was completely removed and the installation loosk cleaner. However, I've noticed "httpd" is removed from the automatic services section from the gui(kde). This method uses the standard "httpd.conf" file.

I would like to installl all the extra components like ssl, perl, mysql etc...

Thanks in Advanced.
