Hi, How would I Remove/Modify the Apache version from Domaintools? Heres what I mean: http://i5.tinypic.com/4l41d1j

This really wouldn't increase security at all (you're not running old out-dated apache are you?) but in your apache configuration you would use something like: Make sure that if either of those directives are already in your configuration you edit them instead of just adding those two lines.

Apache = 2.0.52 PHP = 4.3.9 MYSQL 4.1.20 Don't think that is out of date is it? Did what you said, thanks

I could make a scuff about PHP and MySQL versions but I won't

Hey Dollar, I've added/edited the lines in httpd.conf, however the version is still showing up on domaintools. Also, you know how error pages contains the version and OS on the bottom of the pages - does these edits take away those too?

It updates every 7 days, What you see now is called caching

There is "Expose" in php.ini too.

As a matter of fact, yes. The mainline Apache development is in the 2.2 branch - 2.0 is maintenance at this point but even that is on 2.0.59. 2.0.52 was released in September of 2004 - three years ago!

2.0.52 has been maintained for security updates by Redhat in Enterprise Linux 4. Thus if he is running RHEL4 or CentOS4 that does *NOT* mean he's out of date for security patches. (provided he processes updates from the distribution repository regularly, of course)
