Subject RE: [users@httpd] Trying to modify Server header for apache 2.2.4 but fails

Hi Soumendu,


Did you try setting ServerToken to Prod?


I'm not sure it changes the headers, but it might. Give it a try.

Subject: [users@httpd] Trying to modify Server header for apache 2.2.4
but fails


Hi ,

         I am trying to modify the Server header (to disable Apache
banner information) with mod_headers , but it doesn't seem to be


Header unset Server

Header set Server " Web Server"


If I change it to Server1 , it works , but seems it's not able to modify
the Server header in particular. I have verified the output thru wget &
live http headers.  Also I am requesting a static image file and it's
not a dynamic content ( I have jboss as my application server , Apache
connects thru mod_jk). This image file is not being served by Jboss and
is getting served directly by Apache ( I also have mod_cache enabled ,
but tried clearing the cache , still same result). 


Is this a limitation or am I doing something wrong ? Is there any other
way to stop apache from revealing its version information ?
