    For reasons I won't go into we have a requirement to use Apache 2.2.4 or above.

    The latest version of EasyApache (v3.18.16) supports versions 2.2.24 and 2.4.4. Unfortunately certain modules we need are not yet supported by Apache 2.4 and one in particular requires 2.2.4 or above.

    Now I seem to recall Easy apache having the option to install 2.2.4 at some point in the past but it seems to have gone now.

    Is there any way to either dowgrade Easy apache in order to install Apache 2.2.4 or above. Or is there any other way to use Easy Apache to build our required version.

    Thanks in advance.

    Someone from the EasyApache team will be by to properly answer this. I just wanted to ask what you see on the Apache Version page right now?

    On my EDGE server I'm running 2.2.24 right now and I see these listed:
    Apache 1.3.42 END OF LIFE
    Apache 2.0.64
    Apache 2.2.24
    Apache 2.4.4 EXPERIMENTAL

    Thanks Infopro... I have exactly the same options as yourself:

    Apache 1.3.42 END OF LIFE
    Apache 2.0.64
    Apache 2.2.24
    Apache 2.4.4 EXPERIMENTAL

    Forgive me if I'm misundertanding, but you say that you [rightfully] see options in EA to compile 2.2.24 and 2.4.4. In addition, you say that you need Apache 2.2.4 or above.

    Apache 2.2.4 < Apache 2.2.24 < Apache 2.4.4

    a. Apache 2.2.24 qualifies as "Apache 2.2.4 or above"
    b. Apache 2.2.24 qualifies for "one in particular requires 2.2.4 or above"

    So I have to ask, what's the problem with just using Apache 2.2.24 ? It seems to meet your requirement of not being 2.4.x and of being "2.2.4 or above".

    Mike

    Apache 2.2.4 was released over six years ago, and there have been many updates since then. Even if you get hold of a copy of 2.2.4, we strongly recommend against using it, as it contains several security vulnerabilities that were corrected in later releases. The complete change log for the 2.2 series is here:

    http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.2

    Version 2.2.24, provided in the current version of EasyApache, is the latest in the 2.2 series, and is almost certainly what you want.
