Re: Apache2: httpd.conf or apache2.conf?

I tried the provided .deb package and also compiled my own apache2
server and discovered the following: If you use the Debian package all
configuration is done in the apache2.conf and the httpd.conf is only for
compatibility reasons. If you compile your own server, all configuration
files are in the httpd.conf. 

I am not sure about the version of the apache2 server in the Debian
package, but I think the version used is not the newest. Maybe this
difference occurs because of different versions.

By the way: I would absolutetly recommend to compile the apache2 by hand
so you can define your own profile in the config.layout file to
customize where config files and so on are located.
