Patches & Updates Apache 1.3.33-6 Update



11 Aug 2005

H-Sphere versions:   All

Apache 1.3.33-6 comes with:
- PHP 4.4.0 which is a maintenance release that addresses a serious memory corruption problem within PHP concerning references;
- solved problem with Apache 1.3.33-5 requiring Postgres libs for work.

Requirements

Make sure to have the following packages installed before you start the upgrade:

- hsphere-webmails-1-6 for H-Sphere 2.4.1 and up (or else mail servers will be skipped)
- The latest OpenSSL for all versions of H-Sphere. Install it as per OpenSSL documentation.

Custom PHP: If you have custom php modules installed on H-Sphere WEB boxes, don't forget to back them up before upgrading the software. After the upgrade, set them back up and restart the service.

If you are using Zend Optimizer or other optimizers, you will need to upgrade them to new version after upgrading PHP.
