Ubuntu 8.04 apache2 security releases

I was just looking at the Apache2 versions for Ubuntu 8.04 by Virtualmin at http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu/dists/virtualmin-hardy/main/bi..., and I noticed that it appears the latest update is 2.2.8-12vm.ubuntu0.14. However, according to Ubuntu (http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/apache2), the latest version of Apache is 2.2.8-1ubuntu0.19. Parsing the version names apart, it seems that Virtualmin has Ubuntu revision 14, although the latest is Ubuntu revision 19. I need to make sure I'm running the latest security patches to Apache for PCI compliance. Will Virtualmin update these packages, or is there some way I can move to the Ubuntu packages without breaking anything?

Thank you, Carl

Thanks for the heads up Carl, I mentioned this to Joe, who will get that fixed up here shortly.

If you don't see the updates in Virtualmin by the end of the day, please feel free to file a bug report (using the Support link above), as those should certainly be in there :-)

I wouldn't recommend moving to the Ubuntu packages though, as that would break suexec, which had to be recompiled to work on /home.

Thanks for your reply! That's good to hear. I've just submitted a bug for it (https://www.virtualmin.com/node/17379).

Thanks! Carl
