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

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
