Subject [users@httpd] Hiding webserver name/version from clients
Date Thu, 03 Jul 2003 09:13:17 GMT
If I configure Apache not to give any hint on its web pages (e.g. error
pages) that the web server is Apache, is it possible for an advanced user to
find out the origin of the webserver through other means?
Is it possible, for security reasons, in Apache 1.x or 2.x to totally hide
the webserver name/version from the clients? I.e. If I don't want my clients
to know that the server they are connecting to is an Apache etc.

Many thanks,
