Is there a way to replace Apache 2.4 with Apache 2.2 on debian? All the "apache2" packages now install 2.4.

  • What version of Debian are you running? And have you installed any third party repositories? – Shane Madden Jun 4 '13 at 4:02

    Why would you even want to? Besides a few minor configuration tweaks, 2.4 is a dramatic improvement over 2.2. – Michael Hampton Jun 4 '13 at 4:07

As of http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=apache&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all&sourceid=mozilla-search the Apache version in the repositories is 2.2 for all releases including Jessie.

Just >= Sid has 2.4.

If you find your system install 2.4 it means you're on Sid (or Experimental), so edit /etc/apt/sources.list replacing sid or testing with wheezy or jessie, and run apt-get update.

    Worth noting that, at least as of this comment, the default on jessie is 2.4. – Parthian Shot Jun 5 '15 at 20:16
