    Hey everyone, I have a question:

    Does Apple keep Apache current? It seems like they do for OS X server, but I haven't found any information about non-Server OS X's Apache web server. Basically, I'd like to keep everything up to date without having to go and find a newer build of Apache and manually installing it, for fear of messing things up.

    Mac OS X 10.4.6 client (not server) PPC

    Code:
    reh@nulato: httpd -v
    Server version: Apache/1.3.33 (Darwin)
    Server built:   Mar 20 2005 15:08:27
    reh@nulato:
    1.3.35 is the latest version on the still fairly popular 1.x branch. Seems like Apple may be a wee bit behind.

    I see. Well, I was worried I was on Version 1.x and they were up to like version 2.x, if it's only a minor difference I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

    From what I understand, Apache 2 is to Apache 1 what PHP5 is to PHP3/4. It's quite different and not really a new version but more of a different Apache.
