    Unable to update to latest version of httpd


    I just tried to update httpd using yum


    Code:
    yum list installed httpd
    2.2.16-1.fc14


    Code:
    yum update httpd
    2.2.17-1.fc14

    But the latest version is : 2.2.21

    In the sameway


    Code:
    yum install ImageMagick
    6.6.4.1-16.fc14
    Latest Version : 6.7.3-8.

    Why I am getting older version? How do i fix this?

    Using F14

    Post the output of
    Code:
    yum check-update
    Try updating the whole system as there might be an update for YUM itself.
    Code:
    yum update

    Code:
    yum check-update
    gives huge list.
    httpd x86_64 2.2.17-1.fc14 updates 812 k

    I found this on the list.

    I am doing the yum update now.

    Is it good to use rpmfusion?
    Will RPMFUSION have updated data all the time?

    To install httpd from rpmfusion, should i first uninstall httpd?

    Thanks

    I would say that it is helpful to use rpmfusion to install apps that aren't in your "official" Fedora repos. But mixing repos from different vendors is always risky and invites dependency issues. I would avoid installing an app from rpmfusion if it is in the official repos - but sometimes it may be your only way - just understand the risks.

    btw, i see httpd 2.2.17-1 in the Fedora 14 official updates repo here:

    Index of /pub/fedora/linux/updates/14/x86_64

    If I were you, I'd first figure out why you're not seeing the update package from there first. Maybe you don't have the Fedora updates repo enabled?

    Code:
    yum repolist
    Edit: okay, so I guess you *are* seeing the updated httpd package in the Fedora repo - anyway, my original opinion stands: use the Fedora version, if possible

    Is that mean that fedora 14 does not have the 2.2.21 of httpd in its repo?

    Correct. Do you have some pressing need for that particular version?

    Edit: Version 2.2.21 of httpd is in the Fedora 15 updates repo...if truly important, perhaps you should upgrade.

    No, Just asked. I just saw the latest version is available only in F16.
    Should i download, write in a dvd and upgrade my Fedora? Or is there any other way to do it?


    EDIT
    I heard having latest version is safe. (security reason)
    Is that correct?

    You can either download an ISO and burn to DVD, or you can do the whole she-bang over the internet. To do the actual update to a new version of the OS, there are two basic schools of thought:

    1. Do an in-place upgrade

    2. Wipe the system and do a fresh install

    The first way for a while was problematic in Fedora, but for several versions now, has proven stable and reliable.

    The second way is more drastic but is guaranteed to work (provided hardware is compatible).

    In either case, back up any data you don't want to lose!!!!

    What to back up? A good tar command might be:
    Code:
    # back up important directories
    tar -cf /tmp/backup.tar /root /home /etc /var /data
    
    # copy to some safe place
    scp /tmp/backup.tar <some_safe_place>
    But that is by no means exhaustive - just a tip. You know where your important files are.

    If you go for the in-place upgrade, here's the guide:

    Post back here with problems/questions, etc. and good luck!

    I'd suggest that if you do an "in-place upgrade", let the updater (mentioned above) finish updating your system. It could cause trouble if you cancel it out and upgrade instead.
