Using apt-get a good idea?
I recently ran apt-get on an Ubuntu VPS to install LAMP. I had recently compiled LAMP manually on another system and noticed the difference in version numbers. Seems apt-get is very outdated.
This is for an ISPConfig server which may be used for public hosting, so I'm a bit worried if Apache and PHP are outdated.
Is it a good idea to use apt-get? Many people seem to think no and to always compile from source...
If you compile from source you need to know a lot about how to install the application and make sure you have all the dependancies it relies on.
You can upgrade the version of Ubuntu using apt-get upgrade i believe. Failing that you'll need to reload your VPS with a more uptodate OS to get the versions you need.
Thanks for the reply,

Thanks for the help.
Modify your repositories then?
The default apt repos are indeed very outdated. If you really need to be 'bleeding edge', try adding sid to your repos. It's unstable though...
