wonderful. Seems to work like a charm from the official repo. The
updates went smooth for me. :-) One thing that's still missing for
Ubuntu 12.04 is the new mod_geoip module. I manually fixed that with:

dpkg-divert --divert /usr/lib/apache2/modules/
--rename /usr/lib/apache2/modules/
wget -N
-O /tmp/mod_geoip2-latest.tar.gz
cd /tmp
tar xvfz mod_geoip2-latest.tar.gz
cd mod_geoip2_1.2.8
/etc/init.d/apache2 stop
apxs2 -i -a -lGeoIP -c mod_geoip.c
/etc/init.d/apache2 start
rm -rf /tmp/mod_geoip2_1.2.8

But a fine module directly out of the repo would be better. :-)

No worries. I don't remember precisely what I did, was just trying to
get it work again. :-)

IMHO yes ;-) Added an example to show how/when it breaks for me.

Yep. I saw the requirements to get a backport, but somehow I lack time
to work on that - my manual fix works for me right now. :-)

No worries!

No worries either!

Thanks! ;)
