Upgrading Your Virtual Server Apache
If you ordered your Virtual Server before March 27, 2000, and haven't yet upgraded your Apache Web Server, your Virtual Server HTTP service is being provided by Apache 1.2.6. See the instructions below that correspond to your Virtual Server O/S.

  • FreeBSD Apache 1.3
    Connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and do the following.

    1. Run the Apache upgrade script that matches your Virtual Server O/S.

      % /usr/local/apache/1.3/bin/updatemyapache

      The script will give the following output:

                            Apache 1.3 Update
       This program updates your apache web server and modules to version 
       1.3.  It will modify your ~/usr/local/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf 
       file by adding "#version: 1.3" to the very first line.  It will
       also make a new modules directory (~/usr/local/etc/httpd/modules).
       Your old module directory will be saved to another directory name in
       Do you want to continue? [No]: Yes
       Checking httpd.conf file...
       Updating apache modules...
       Updating version number in httpd.conf...
       Done: Apache updated from 1.2.6 to 1.3.12

    2. In Apache 1.2.6, mod_frontpage and mod_rewrite are statically linked modules. In Apache 1.3, both of these modules are dynamically linked Modules. If you are currently using either Microsoft FrontPage or mod_rewrite, you will need to explicitly load each module in the web server configuration file once you have upgraded to Apache 1.3. To do this add one or both of the following lines to your web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf):

      LoadModule frontpage_module modules/mod_frontpage.so
      LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

  • Solaris Apache 1.3
    Your Virtual Server is already running the latest version of Apache. There is no need to upgrade.

  • BSD/OS Upgrade!
    The latest version of Apache is unavailable.

  • Huh?
    If you don't know the Virtual Server O/S, try the following:
