Hi,

I have an unbuntu box with apache 1.3 installed that I updated the security with apt-get upgrade. After the upgrade was complete my web server was down. When I go to my web pages I now see an "Index of" page that the bottom of says - "Apache/2.0.54 (Ubuntu) Server at www.webSite.com Port 80"

I would like to use apach2 but how do I get it running? / If apache 1.3 will do the job and is still safe to use I would be fine using it but how do I down grade to apache 1.3.

Thanks

I have now done:

apt-get remove apache
apt-get install apache

apt-get says it installed apache 1.3

but when I go to the web page it's still down and it says its apache 2.0.54/

?

The above was needed - but then a reboot did the trick :) - It's always a damn reboot!!!
