Is webmin (and Virtualmin) compatible with Apache webserver 2.4.6?
Apache 2.4 isn’t shipped with any distributions supported by Virtualmin, so that’s not something we recommend, and that’s not something which gets much testing.
All that said – it should work! I believe some folks in the forums here have described using third party repositories in order to upgrade to Apache 2.4, and having that work successfully.
are there any news regarding Virtualmin and Apache 2.4?
Virtualmin does support Apache 2.4. Ubuntu 14.04 comes with that, and when CentOS 7 support is released shortly, that will be Apache 2.4 as well.
I did an apache upgrade on one of my client’s server running Debian Linux 7.5 and Virtualmin version 4.09.gpl GPL which broke a some websites. The websites were redirecting to the default server. I later learned from the apache docs that the NameVirtualHost directive had been deprecated. Inserting the IP in the virtual host files of the websites, brought them back to life.
I don’t know if there is already a fix for that.
How do you upgrade apache on a Centos 6.5? I’ve tried everything and YUM keeps saying No Packages marked for Update…
Need the latest version (2.4.x) for PCI compliance, yes I know that there are back ports but the company running the scans aren’t satisfied with that answer and want the latest.
There is no supported way to run Apache 2.4.x on CentOS 6. The Apache version you’re running on your distro is the latest available, and contains all security fixes.
If your PCI company doesn’t accept that, I recommend a new PCI company
Most PCI companies understand how that works and will accept that as an answer if you’re able to show them that you’re using the latest version available to your distro.
