Re: Web server with PHP setup & mod-ssl

I'm rebuilding a web server with a home-grown PHP site that allows
users to log in securely, to view, upload, and download files. This is
my first real foray into Debian.
Here's the spec:
- does "apt-get upgrade" always provide the most secure versions? The
reason I ask is:
- Apache 1.3.26 seems ancient -- is this an OK version to run? I have
executed apt-get upgrade, and apt.conf is set for "stable."
- also, openssl is up to 0.9.6 "l" -- 0.9.6 "c" also seems ancient.
- My previous build ran mod-ssl. However, there is no mod-ssl package
in Debian. Has anyone installed mod-ssl under Debian, or is there a
better program for this function?

Unless you want to venture into the waters of testing or unstable you
are about as good as you can get. You should install apache-ssl if you
want to set up a secure server & especially if this is a production
system. That will take care of your mod-ssl issues. Apache2 which is OK
in unstable is MUCH easier to work with.....but it is in UNSTABLE :-)
We build amazing servers!
