Is there a source like which offers the apache 2.4 packages for Debian squeeze? I'm looking for Apache modules. I want to install the modules from this source and then the actual version of apache via apt?

"so that I can install php stuff" Please when asking a question be specific what you want. Do you want to install php or the php modules for Apache? – Lucas Kauffman Apr 15 '12 at 11:58

I don't think there is any repo with apache 2.4 for Squeeze. I have tried to build it with modified dependencies.

Download debian sources:

apt-get source apache2 -t experimental

Modify dependencies in debian/control to older ones - available in Squeeze:

debhelper (>= 8.0.0~), dpkg-dev (>=, libaprutil1-dev (>= 1.3.9))

And build it:

cd apache2-2.4.2/ && dpkg-buildpackage -b

Install with dpkg -i, it will need some more packages.
