I have a Fedora 16 server (installed in VirtualBox; host system is WinXP Pro, if it matters) that I'm trying to set up as a dev duplicate of an existing production server. The prod server does a lot with manipulating URLs, so I need to get the two Apache servers as close to each other as I can.
The prod server runs http 2.0.63, but
yum install httpd gives me 2.2.22, which doesn't like elements of 2.0.63's configuration files. How do I install (using
yum or anything else) an earlier version of httpd?
(My apologies for asking something that I could probably figure out via Google if I was looking for the right thing. Unfortunately, I'm a software developer, not a sysadmin; I haven't been able to figure it out yet. But if consensus is that this question is too Sysadmin 101 to add any value to the site, I'll delete it, no hard feelings.)
Edit: The production server runs Fedora 8. I have figured out this is a Very Bad Thing; Red Hat discontinued support for it in early 2009 ... shortly before our host provider (GoDaddy) put us on the box. (In my defense, I only recently joined the company.) Our production server is literally insecurable, and has been for as long as we've been running on it. This is a data point in my ongoing project, Convince The Boss To Migrate To A Provider Who Isn't Bloody Horrible.
However, that's a medium-term project. In the short term, my ability to do my job is crippled by the fact that I don't have a dev server. So any advice to the effect of "So get your production environment out of the stone age already!" is 1) correct, 2) appreciated, and 3) pretty much useless to me.
