    Default Updating Apache2 through apt-get

    Hello,

    I wasn't sure whether to post this in the Debian section or the Web Servers section, so I apologize in advance if this is the wrong place.

    I've been running Apache2.2.16 for a bit now, because it's the one that comes with apt-get. It runs perfectly fine, however for security purposes I would like to stay up to date, of course.

    I've been running apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, however it seems that there is no newer version of Apache2 in the repository than "Version: 2.2.16-6+squeeze1".

    My question, is this dangerous? Are there security risks? Is there any way to (easily) update Apache2 to the latest version?

    I'm running Debian 64-bit.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello, Still looking for answer here. If it's not possible, it it hard to switch from a apt-get version of Apache2 to a compiled one (and keep that one updated?) without losing settings/lots of downtime? Thanks,
