It looks like the most recent version of apache available via aptitude is 2.2.14 (as shown here). However, we have a requirement from the customer to upgrade to 2.2.17, which is the latest version available on the apache site.
Is there a way to upgrade to version 2.2.17 via aptitude? If not, what's the best way to upgrade? I'm comfortable building from source, but would much prefer having the package manager take care of it if possible.
Also, I read on some other posts that the security vulnerabilities that have been fixed between 2.2.14 and 2.2.17 may have already been patched by the Ubuntu OS? If that's true, is there a way I can verify this on my system? Or just have to take Ubuntu's word for it?
Thanks for any advice!
