I have a Solaris 9 SPARC box. It is a personal server that I use for a personal web page as well as a "learning" environment. A few years back I compiled and ran Apache 1.3.x in a similar environment. Now I see there are versions 2.0.59 and 2.2.3. I am just wondering which version I should run. I am not a Solaris or Apache guru by any stretch. I just plan on doing some basic web design and education, installing PERL and mod PERL and doing some basic scripting.
I'd like to install the "best" version of Apache but also the version that is the currently the most functional. Is there any reason I should not install the most current version?
