View Full Version : Need advice in order to move to Custombuild

04-11-2008, 04:44 AM

I am running a centos 4 directadmin server (x86_64), currently its running apache 1.3, php5, mysql5 and dovecot.

I want to move to custombuild because of apache 2.2.

What are the steps which need to be taken in order to do this?

Help is greatly appreciated...

smtalk, I asked from the performance point of view. I can't see any reason.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

About the performance - Apache 2.2 is better than Apache 2.0, but if you use Apache 1.3 - you won't see any performance improvements.

I have the same setup (except mysql4) and was going through all 12 pages of the faq thread last night. I opted not to do it because I didn't want to hose my production environment.

If something goes wrong, is it feasible to just ./build all in customapache/ to get things back the way they were? I don't want to be up the creek w/o a paddle in the middle of the night. :)

Also, it doesn't remove the Apache 1.3 /etc/httpd/ files correct?
