Subject RE: [users@httpd] Trying to modify Server header for apache 2.2.4 but fails
Date Sun, 01 Jun 2008 15:30:43 GMT
Soumendu,

You cannot achieve that with mod_headers AFAIK.  "Server" header is an exception,
you have to change it in code and recompile Apache.

Regards,
Tamer

By the way, I see you already tried it, but I just tried it as well, and it really does remove
the header, so if it still doesn't work see that you're doing it in the right place.

Hi again,

If you really want to use mod_headers for this, I'd suggest the following line:

Header unset Server

Thanks Nir. Now Apache doesn't reveal everything else , but still says its Apache. I guess
this should be fine, but any idea why mod_headers didn't work ?

Regards

Soumendu

My bad, it is ServerTokens, not ServerToken.

Hi Soumendu,

Did you try setting ServerToken to Prod?

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

Regards,

Nir

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 working.

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 ?

Regards

Soumendu
