IOW, what I'm already running.
A good reason? Sure: v1.3.41 works.
I'm running very old hardware at the moment. I do not want to attempt
to introduce a lot of new variables and then spend 30 hours chasing down
symptoms (witness my SCSI->IDE HDD upgrade that traps and can't be
effectively debugged, in another thread).
When new versions of software appear, I am not jumping on them to
update, as decades playing this game has put a pall on the whole upgrade
game. If it's not broken, I do not fix it.
Now . . . I do have newer hardware ready to roll out, but that requires
that I install the eCS license I bought last summer, learn to install
eCS, migrate the apps & scripts, reconfigure the various utilities to
operate with new boxes . . . IOW, work. This kind of stuff ceased being
fun for me about 12 years ago.
Again, what I've got in place now is working. With the exception of
failing fans and HDDs, twice-a-year server reboot, and occasional log
file deletion, it runs fine without demanding a lot of my time. I like
Yeah, Apache v2, MySQL v5 and newer PHP will eventually make it onto the
new boxes, but first the new boxes have to be implemented, and that's
not going to happen in the next few months. Too many things are ahead
Meanwhile . . . Apache v1.3.41 just keeps sending out the info . . .
