    My current version of apache is 1.3.34, is there a way for me to upgrade to the latest version of apache through cpanel?

    Thanks

    This will have to be done through WHM, I believe its called 'Update Apache Server' - Unfortunately CPanel is for the client / end user client and this is a server wide upgrade, therefore it must be done by the server administrator.

    Thanks for the quick response. I see there is an "update apache" section. I went through that and did a re-build, but it still had the same old version of apache.

    Do I need to download apache to a special directory, then start the update?

    What do you mean by old version of apache.

    Apache has two different trees:

    - Apache 1.3x
    - Apache 2.0x

    cPanel currently supports Apache 1.3, 1.3.34 is the latest version in the tree. I think support for 2.0x is being worked on, however 1.3.34 is not out of date and at present there is no real advantage in upgrading, if you can that is. Since it is not cPanel supported, you would have to compile everything outside it.

    not to mention the fact that if someone missed the "Update Apache" link, it's likely they are not going to be able to handle the configuration changes required for the migration...

    xidica,

    What a harsh response, it was a simple question. No need to bring a flame war into this scenario. :p

    There was nothing harsh about the response. Managing WHM/Cpanel and the underlying OS takes a pretty high level of skill in *nix system administration.

    Someone that is not familier with WHM/Cpanel will have a good chance of getting in over their head when upgrading the core libs and binaries.

    Isn't Apache 2 supposed to be out soon? As an upgrade option in WHM?
