    I've installed Apache2, PHP etc on a Debian 5 machine. Now I want to update my current Apache2 version (apache2-mpm-prefork 2.2.9-10+lenny2) to the latest version. But I'm a bit confused about the dependencies and hope you can help me a bit ;)

    For the following packages in /web are updates available:
    apache2, apache2-mpm-prefork, apache2-suexec-custom, apache2-utils, apache2.2-common, libapache2-mod-php5
    I could install apache2-mpm-prefork + apache2.2-common without dependency problems, but I don't know if thats right. If I choose apache2 for update, aptitude wants to delete the prefork module and install worker instead. Can you tell me please what to do?

    Just go to a console and do apt-get update && apt-get upgrade and let apt worry about it...

    Ok thanks. in this case the prefork package will be updated correctly.
    Can you tell me please if I should worry if aptitude updates to linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64? Something I must consider (GRUB setting or so)?

    After this answer I'll stop bothering you, I promise :p

    Nope, apt will add the new entries (and make them default) in the menu.lst for grub and re-write.
