    Hi there,
    since everyone always says: keep things up to date, I am looking to update my PHP5.1, MySQL5.0.5 and Apache2.2.9.

    Are there any guides on this here? Or can someone point me in a direction where I might find the relevant guides/howtos?

    The server in question is the root server in my signature.

    Thanks in advance. :) :) :) :)

    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

    I do that regularly. But as you can see from my version numbers, it's not 100% up to date.
    I use my ISP's (Hetzner) servers for upgrading. Could the reason for the "delay" in my version numbers be that they take a little longer to update their data?
    And if so, is it a big deal/problem?

    The Debian mirrors don't always have the newest versions. For example, if you have Apache 2.2.9 installed and there's an update, the update would also have the version number 2.2.9.

    Should I upgrade apache/php/mysql manually or is it ok to wait till the debian mirrors have the new versions?

    As I said in my previous post, it's unlikely that the updated versions on the Debian mirrors will have a higher version number. They are updated, but they still have the old version number.
    I wouldn't upgrade manually - chances are you mess up your system.
