Hans has written two excelent howto's about installing and configuring suPHP for use with ISPConfig on Debian Sarge (http://www.howtoforge.com/suphp_debian_ispconfig) and Etch (http://www.howtoforge.com/suphp_debian_etch_ispconfig). Thank you for that Hans. However, an "apt-cache search suphp" on my server reveals the packages libapache2-mod-suphp (for Apache) and libapache2-mod-suphp (for Apache 2). I guess like many others, I prefer to install software from the Debian repository using aptitude, in order to keep my server easier to maintain. My question now is: is there a specific reason for (w)getting and making suPHP by hand, as instructed in Hans's howto's, or can one just as well "apt-get install" it? In the latter case it's interesting to know exactly which steps can be skipped from in the current howto's.
