Anyone have strong opinions as to whether it's worth
installing Apache 2.0 instead of using the 1.3 which
comes built-in on OS X?
Advantage to the built-in one - none really except for
convenience - it's already there and, presuambly, Apple
will keep it up-to-date for security fixes automatically.
It appears to be version 1.3.33 - only one version old
and only missing relatively minor security and bug fix.
Else - there's apache 2.0 via Fink, or via Aaron Faby's
ServerLogistics.com packaged release.
Apparently, the main features of 2.0 are better multithreading
(not a major concern for small-scale personal stuff),
filtered modules (also not a big deal unless for some
reason you have cgi outputing ssi stuff), and better
handling of SSL. Apache.org indicates that 2.2 is out,
but Aaron Faby's packaged release is a slightly old 2.0.52
same as the current stable Fink release.
I'm kind of interested in the SSL stuff, but it's not
a huge priority at the moment.
Just curious what folks out there are using and, maybe, why.
Also - how about backing up configurations and such?
I'm a little concerned about Apple's updates overwriting
custom config if I modify it.
Plain Bread alone for e-mail, thanks. The rest gets trashed.
