How to update httpd in virtualmin

How to update httpd in virtualmin?

Current version is httpd-2.2.3.vm. How to update to the new version 2.2.17 ?

If I want to recompile apache, what should I do?

Thanks.Please help me!

What distro are you using there? Are there no updates available for the Apache package? Ubuntu has 2.2.14 here.

If possible, I'd rather stick with the packaged versions and not compile the stuff yourself. Otherwise you need to manage versions and packages manually, which can quickly lead to trouble (especially if you don't know precisely what you're doing - and asking those questions suggests that is the case for you ;) ).

I suspect you'll run into more problems in the long-run by using a custom compiled Apache, I'd highly recommend against that :-)

A quick thing you could try to get around the error you're seeing is to switch your site from FCGID to CGI. You can do that by going into Server Configuration -> Website Options, and change the PHP Execution mode to CGI.

After doing that, does your site begin working?

Eric, he didn't even write that his web site isn't working. ;)

Yeah, I heard people talk about those, but I personally prefer users making clear statements what's wrong. ;-)
