Downgrading Apache?
My MythTV server (Slackware 14.0) cannot run MythWeb because mod_perl is not ready for Apache 2.4 yet. Is there a way of downgrading to 2.2? I could just remove 2.4 package and install 2.2 from Slackware 13.37 but I suspect there could be problems. Any opinions/experiences/advice?

I suppose you don't want to try the bleeding edge version from svn, but you should be able to build this


BUILD=1 ./httpd.SlackBuild
after having downgraded it, backup /etc/httpd, run


slackpkg new-config
and overwrite its configuration files.

Thanks ponce. Tried the SVN revision of mod_perl but ended up with segmentation faults on startup. Downgraded to 2.2 as per your instructions (had to downgrade PHP as well) and MythWeb is working now.

Thanks for your help.
