Apache upgrade


Hi all,

Does anyone know how to upgrade the new version over the current version of apache? (eg. apache 1.3 => apache 2.0)

I tried to do it, but dont seem to work. I followed the tut onhttpd.apache.org/docs.

Can someone please help me with this?

Cheers,
Spyiish

I think that youhave to remove the old one and install the new one.
either that or install the new one i a different directory and remove the old one from your start up script.

You cannot upgrade the Apache from 1.3.x to 2.0.x

Upgrades works only between sub versions such as from 1.3.x to 1.3.y or from 2.0.x to 2.0.y

removepkg apache

They're default installed under /usr/local which I find the best place to install it if (a security freak won't but I do :P ).

Ah ok, thanks for that gbonvehi.

In terms of security, under what directory wud be best to install packages, either slackware or open source.

Btw, if I download apache 2.0, if I install it, the default directory wud be under /usr/local, or somewhere else? Someone told me its under a different directory.

Well, thinking about it, it wouldn't matter where you put it, it will be always in risk if someones breaks in, so I guess it's just a matter on how your organize your files.
Actually it doesn't matter the default directory, it can always be changed by passing a argument on ./configure normally it's --prefix=/path . Take a look at the readme or install of Apache to see more detailed and specific instructions.

A default Slackware apache package is installed in /usr NOT /usr/local.

If you want to replace it with 2.0 "removepkg apache-1.*.tgz" Compile your apache-2.0 using "./configure prefix=/usr", make, then finally use "checkinstall"

You can find the checkinstall package in the /extras directory at any Slackware mirror. This will make a slackware package out of any source compile that can be installed and removed with the package tools.

so if I install apache2.0, if i ever wanna uninstall it? Do I also use the same command removepkg, or something else?I know apache 2.0 is an open soruce program whereas the preinstalled apache1.3 is a package that came with slackware.

Im not sure, but the apache1.3 that comes with slackware is the .tgz version, and the apahce2.0 is the .tar.gz version. They both different packages?

A tar.gz package is not generally a slackware package but a source package, ie you have to
compile it yourself.

Compiling it from source (the *.tar.gz tarball) using "checkinstall" as the last step, instead of just "install", will install it as a .tgz Slackware package, provided you have installed the checkinstall package.

eelriver, it's the default directory if you compile from source.
