Subject RE: [users@httpd] Installing Apache 1.3 on Windows 2003
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2007 03:26:49 GMT
Thanks for the input, but I'll be moving along. I have reasons for keeping
things status quo, and not going to upgrade at this time.

Why update?

1) Security patches.

You missed the subtle reference that older versions of Apache are
vulnerable and therefore could compromise your system.

2) Apache 1.3x is abandoned on Win32 platforms, 2.2.x is current.

See http://www.wmwweb.com/apache/httpd/binaries/win32/ for part of the
explanation.

Back to your message -- you are not alone: we all manage systems that
are not bleeding edge.

However, that does not mean we aren't aware of the responsibility to
keep them up to date for bug, stability, and security reasons. We all
must calculate the appropriate manner to manage updates.

When it comes to requesting Apache support, you're very unlikely to see
someone to volunteer to help with an older version for the reasons
stated: it's not good advice!

I hope this helps, sometimes hearing the fundamental reason helps on the
second iteration of a discussion.

Cheers,

Now that everyone has got their opinions out of the way of how behind I
am,
is their a way to get this to work? To the person who said "I doubt it's
your box anymore", Why?? It is and it works, and to WOW everyone even
more,
it's running beautifully on a 366 with 256 megs of ram.

It never crashes, it never hiccups, and it's reasonably fast running on
an
old version of Slackware (8.1) - so why would I want to change it? I
also
have an analog TV and a 15 year old toaster that work fantastic as well,
and
I'm not planning to upgrade those either.

New does not necessarily mean better, and in many cases are much worse. 

Thanks

if everyone did that, we'd still be banging flints together.
