comment How do you deal with backports in production?
How do you figure out if a ppa is safe? I run into the same issue all the time, but I'm really leery of adding many ppa's to my production. Like launchpad.net/~tuxpoldo/+archive/munin would be what I'd add for munin, but is it safe?

Ah, pardon, I'm going to blame the allergies I've been fighting for my not seeing the text you bolded...

A security update to Apache would require that Apache be restarted, right?

I'm not asking how to install upgrades. That's easy. Nor am I asking how to tell if security upgrades are needed. I'm asking how to be notified WHAT security upgrades need to be applied for individual servers without me having to log in.

I want to avoid installing updates that might break something or cause services to restart. Unattended upgrades could do both of those things.

Right, never selected an answer for this question. If I remember correctly, I did have a different atc user, and deleting it fixed the problem. So I'm picking this as my answer.

So, I was about to try setting this up again on a 12.04 test server, but from your update, I'd have to compile libgnutls26. Since I don't have enough users that LDAP auth is essential, I think I'll not use LDAP auth for the foreseeable future. Thanks for your help, Chris, especially the updates. Really appreciated.

Anon bind is not allowed on our servers. The binddn is a user created with the appropriate permissions. Read only, if I am right, it was actually created by the previous admin...
