I am running a FreeBSD (6.3-STABLE) production server with apache13 installed via ports. For various reasons I need to upgrade this to apache22, preferable also installed via ports. As my maintenance window is really short, I thought about installing the apache22 in parallel to apache13, configuring and testing it (on port :81 or so) and then just switch during maintenance. (Backups exist, of course).
Thing is, the apache22 port is setup to conflict with the apache13 and I can't find a way to override this.
[root@desearth ~]# portupgrade -fNW www/apache22 ... ===> Installing for apache-2.2.13 ===> apache-2.2.13 conflicts with installed package(s): apache-1.3.34_4 apr-db42-1.2.8_2
Also doing 'make install' in the /usr/ports/www/apache22 directory with -DFORCE_PKG_REGISTER fails for the same reason.
Any ideas how to work around this?
