There is a nice explanation of how to do this in Martin Kraft's Debian
System book and on the DA.org site:


It's a good approach to this kind of problem.

I think apache2 is now default, it does have many advantages over
apache1.3. However you should be able to find apache2 and remove it in
favour of apache 1.3.

My Sarge system has:

ii  apache2        2.0.54-5sarge1 next generation, scalable, etc
ii  apache2-common 2.0.54-5sarge1 next generation, scalable, etc
ii  apache2-doc    2.0.54-5sarge1 documentation for apache2
ii  apache2-mpm-pr 2.0.54-5sarge1 traditional model for Apache2
ii  apache2-utils  2.0.54-5sarge1 utility programs for webservers
ii  libapache-dbi- 0.94-2         Connect apache server to database etc
ii  libapache2-mod 2.0.48-4-2.1   Module for Apache2 which provides etc
ii  libapache2-mod 1.1.1-6        Module for Apache2 which checks etc
ii  libapache2-mod 1.999.21-1     Integration of perl with the Apache2
ii  libapr0        2.0.54-5sarge1 the Apache Portable Runtime

If you run

# aptitude search apache | grep -v apache2

no shortage of stuff comes back. So once you have got apache2 off you
should be able to put apache1.3 on without a problem.
