    Hi all,

    I'm currently setting up a webserver based on Debian 4.0 (Etch) and I'm following the "Perfect Setup". Installation of Debian went without a hitch and it installed Apache2.

    Next stop was ISPConfig.

    At one time ISPConfig's setup gave me the message it had compiled Apache 1.3.x (can't remember the exact version, but it was definitely a 1.x.x version) and I guess it's the server that's going to listen to port 81.

    But why did it use Apache 1.x.x instead of Apache 2? Is this wrong? If so, how can I correct this?

    Why shall it use apache 2? Apache 1 is a very good and stable software that is kept up to date with bugfixes.

    No. Your webpages run on the apache2 server of your linux distribution and the controlpanel on port 81 on the 1.x apache version.

    Hi and thank you for your answer.

    I just thought it was weird it would use Apache 1 while the rest of the system was already using Apache 2.
