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

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.
I think it's something the .deb package manager(s) do, since other distrobutions I have used, have been using httpd.conf back to apache 1.3. I personally don't like the way Debian does this, but I think it's easier to adjust because it's precompiled with a nice set of features. Also I think apache likes to refer to their software as httpd, not as "apache" since they have a plethora of projects and other useful software.
