Advantages of Apache 2
I have jus noticed that in SuSE 9.0 the apache 2 server is in YaST! Jus thought i'd check,
What exactly are the advantages (If any) of apache 2 over apache 1.3? I currently have apache 1.3 installed, with MySQL and PHP support, i am thinking about upgrading this to Apache 2, but don't want to have to go thru all the setup again! I know it's not much, i'm jus a lazy student! Will apache 2 detect the settings for apache 1.3 or do i have to do them all again from scratch? Or could i literally just copy the httpd.conf file from apache 1.3 to the apache 2 file?
The only differnce is Apache 2.x runs on Windows better then 1.x and the API is supposed to be improved which only applys to programmers as far as that there isnt real differnce.
So relly on a SuSE 9.0 system, there's no real advantage of installin Apache 2 then?
Since you are using PHP, I wouldn't go with Apache 2 just yet. PHP is not well supported on Apache 2.
