    Converting from apache 1.3 to 2.0

    Is it worth it? I think i would like to.. but i got my server running so nicely I'm afraid to risk it. I have it set up with PHP, MySQL, and SSI. Would getting those working be hard to redo? Would I have to reinstall php/mysql? Can i have 1.3 and 2.0 (maybe only run 1 at startup) at the same time or would config files conflict? Will installation of these things be much different (i use apt)?

    I know its a bunch of question and im sorry, but im looking for people with first hand experience who can help.

    If you have no security issues (i.e. there are no security exploits that you're going to be vulnerable to), then there isn't a lot of point upgrading unless there is some specific features you need.

    That said, as you use apt, you can backup your config and your web pages, and give it a go - you can always uninstall it later if things dont go so well and re-install the previous version.
