Re: Why are so many people using 4.x?

2006-03-28 Thread Philip Hallstrom
I notice a lot of references to version 4.x. Is there any overwhelming reason why its use seems to be still popular. I'm wanting to set up a server (just for play) on my home network using a PII machine. Am I better off using an older version for such old equipment? If so, do any particular

I just wanted to get pros and cons for tracking the whole port tree on a production server. Any opinions? Tracking it isn't going to take a lot of space. Although if it's a serious production server (as opposed to my home production server :-) I don't know if I'd install ports on it before

I am having trouble installing a port/package because it wants to use Apache 1.3 whereas I am running Apache 2 on the server in question. As far as I can tell, I should install by building the port rather than using the package because the package is obviously pre-compiled for Apache 1.3.
