Patches & Updates Apache 1.3.34-1 Update

01 Nov 2005

H-Sphere versions:   All

H-Sphere Apache 1.3.34-1 is a CP and Web&Mail servers' update. It includes:

Apache 1.3.34-1 updates:

  • CP Apache package to version:
    • hsphere-cpanel-apache-1.3.34-1 (Linux)
    • hsphere-cpanel-apache-1.3.34_1 (FreeBSD)
  • Webbox Apache package to version:
    • hsphere-apache-webbox-1.3.34-1 (Linux)
    • hsphere-apache-webbox-1.3.34_1 (FreeBSD)

Note: The release of Apache 1.3.34 and PHP 4.4.1 security update, which fixes a vulnerability found in PHP, is being prepared now.


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

- hsphere-webmails-1-6 (or higher) for H-Sphere 2.4.1 and up (otherwise mail servers won't be updated)
- The latest OpenSSL for all versions of H-Sphere. Install it as per OpenSSL documentation
- The latest zlib update which eliminates potential security vulnerabilities in previous versions.

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.
