Chapter 2. Upgrading to the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29

Note

Where a Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23 or earlier was installed from RPMs packages using yum, the Apache HTTP Server can be upgraded with yum upgrade.

For systems where an earlier version of the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server was installed from a .zip archive, upgrading to the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 Service Pack 2 requires:

  1. Installing the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29.
  2. Setting up the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29.
  3. Removing the earlier version of Apache HTTP Server.

Prerequisites

  • Root user access (Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Solaris systems)
  • Administrative access (Windows Server)
  • A system where the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23 or earlier was installed from a .zip archive.

Procedure

For systems using the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23, the recommended procedure for upgrading to the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 is:

  1. Shutdown any running instances of Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23.
  2. Backup the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23 installation and configuration files.
  3. Install the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 using the .zip installation method for the current system (see Additional Resources below).
  4. Migrate your configuration from the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server version 2.4.23 to version 2.4.29.

    Note

    The Apache HTTP Server configuration files may have changed since the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23 release. It is recommended that you update the 2.4.29 version configuration files, rather than overwrite them with the configuration files from a different version (such as Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23).

  5. Remove the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.23 root directory.
