    Exclamation Replacing a existing package in hardy


    I rebuilt a source package of apache2.2-common using the below link
    Rebuilding Suexec with Different defaults - Internats Rants

    i need that to be installed at a ubuntu 8.04 server which is currently having apache2 and apache2.2-commmon installed
    and also has some critical websites running live on it.

    I have even changed the build number as specified in the blog using 'dch -i'.

    Ok, the million dollar question is
    how do i upgrade the systems' apache2.2-common with the package i built without disturbing other packages and the sites?
    I mean is there a way like its done for a package by 'apt-get update' ?

    Ok, one may want to know why i am doing this?

    Actually, i am installing virtualmin in webmin
    It says

    Failed to save enabled features : The Suexec command on your system is configured to only run scripts under /var/www,
    but the Virtualmin base directory is /home. CGI and PHP scripts run as domain owners will not be executed.
    On googling i found that i need to recompile suexec module with docroot as /home

    Thats what i did !

    Now is there a solution for installing virtualmin in webmin w/o disturbing the existing apache?
    Can the apache2.2-common be just upgraded with the rebuilt deb package?
