Abstract

These release notes contain important information related to the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37.

Preface

Welcome to the Red Hat JBoss Core Services version Service Pack 1 2.4.37 release.

Important

This version of JBCS will be dropping support for Solaris systems. JBCS will continue to support both RHEL and Windows systems, but all support for Solaris has been dropped from this update.

Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server is an open source web server developed by the Apache Software Foundation. Features of Apache HTTP Server include:

  • Implements the current HTTP standards, including HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2.
  • Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption support though OpenSSL, providing secure connections between the web server and web clients.
  • Extendable though modules, some of which are included with the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server.

Chapter 1. Installing the Red Hat JBoss Core Services 2.4.37

The Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37 can be installed using one of the following sections of the installation guide:

Chapter 2. Upgrading to the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37

Note

Where a Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 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 2.4.37 Service Pack 1 requires:

  1. Installing the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37.
  2. Setting up the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37.
  3. Removing the earlier version of Apache HTTP Server.

Prerequisites

  • Root user access (Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems)
  • Administrative access (Windows Server)
  • A system where the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 or earlier was installed from a .zip archive.

Procedure

For systems using the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29, the recommended procedure for upgrading to the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37 is:

  1. Shutdown any running instances of Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29.
  2. Backup the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 installation and configuration files.
  3. Install the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.37 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 2.4.29 to version 2.4.37.

    Note

    The Apache HTTP Server configuration files may have changed since the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 release. It is recommended that you update the 2.4.37 version configuration files, rather than overwrite them with the configuration files from a different version (such as Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29).

  5. Remove the Red Hat JBoss Core Services Apache HTTP Server 2.4.29 root directory.
