This is not a failing of Lenny. Apache 1 is ancient. Jonathan Yu claims it's still maintained, but quoted a release over a year old. PHP4 is listed as historical and has not had support since 2007.

If you refuse to upgrade your software, why are you upgrading your OS? You can't have unsupported legacy software *and* be up-to-date. At some point you're going to have to do what you're paid for.. you know, work. Either by upgrading that old fossil you call a web server, or by building your own packages for unsupported software.

Personally, I would expect any sysadmins I hired to be capable of these basics.
