Questions Regarding Upgrading To New Version Of Apache Web Server

In September 2010, HP released the following bulletin:

Subject: End of Support Life for “Apache version 2.0 along with WSS version 2.x” on 11iv2 and 11iv3.


I have some questions about this migration:

(1) Does anyone know where I can obtain more information about this? Release notes, readme first docs, technical contacts, etc

(2) We have unix servers that are running the old legacy Apache web server which need the upgrade. I do not yet know how this is supposed to work. Specifically, will upgrading from legacy to the new version
"pull over" the legacy configuration files, binaries, etc, or is the "upgrade" a completely brand new install which will blow away the existing legacy version?

(3) How will I test (post-installation) the new upgrade to make sure everything actually works like it is supposed to work? I know this testing will involve verifying to make sure that the web content is still accessible, but are there any other tests which should be ran?

(4) What about any new configurations fies, new features, updated features, etc? Also, will the new version cofiguration files overwrite the legacy configuration files, requiring me to re-examine the configuration files?

Any and all constructive comments will be appreciated.

Hi Rob,

Please refer to the below link for more information on your questions.

Further, click on the "Additional Information" tab at the bottom and it would give you more information and documents for each versions.

To me, looks like the version you have mentioned is old as well. If you are upgrading, go ahead for the latest.

I am not a geek in apache, but, I'd say the best thing is to backup all possible things when you do a upgrade. Since, upgrades are of two types, one in the document and the other in actual servers. The fact is that Management does not know this! Smilie

All the best!

Are you sure about that link? I went there and it gave me:

Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

Hi Rob,

It should work if you click on it. But, copy paste might not work. Anyways, here is the complete link.

Below is how I got it
Search for
You would find "HP-UX Web Server Suite" which says "Information only" against it.
Click on it!
Actually, this is where you find all the messages like the EOS bulletin you received. The complete pack.

You will find all archived products and links to that here. You can however select "current release" and there you go. The latest and information related to it. Smilie
