Apache HTTP Server is an open source HTTP web server for UNIX-like systems (BSD, Linux, and UNIX), Microsoft Windows, and other platforms.
DreamHost Apache version
DreamHost runs the following versions:
- 2.4.29 on servers running Ubuntu 18 (Bionic)
- 2.4.25 on servers running Debian (Stretch)
- 2.4.38 on servers running Debian (Buster)
In the past, one could determine information about the web server from the HTTP response headers through the Server header. However for security reasons, it was decided to set ServerTokens to "Prod" and as a result, the value of this header only returns Apache. It cannot be modified using an .htaccess file.
For example, if you run this command now, the only response is Apache:
[server]$ curl -Is http://example.com | grep Server Server: Apache
To find the version of Apache currently running, run the following:
[server]$ /usr/sbin/apache2 -v
