Subject RE: [users@httpd] Hiding Apache version info on the Aix server for Apache.
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2017 07:09:15 GMT
I’ve tested on CentOS 6.8, Apache 2.2.15


*ServerTokens PROD*
*ServerSignature Off*

Work perfectly and do not affect the starting of the server.

Secondly have you actually ever run a configtest?

*apachectl configtest*

If you copy and paste the the ServerTokens and ServerSignature lines above
exactly as I have them they will work. If not then you have messed up
something else in your httpd.conf file which is why a configtest is so

I attach a very basic httpd.conf which you can try, it’s as basic as it

Below are the entries I have updated in the httpd.conf and tried restarting
the apache, but it didn't started and didn't even gave any errors.

$cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf | grep -i signature
ServerSignature Off

$ cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf | grep -i tokens
ServerTokens Prod

Thus your edits have an effect. Good.

What are the actual lines, and what was the actual error message?

Check you spelling. Copy-paste from documentation, if possible.

Try to search if other configuration files define those directives.
(The files included into main httpd.conf file with "Include" directive).
