How To Check the Version of Apache

Reading Time: < 1 minuteApache’s newer version, 2.0, is necessary to take advantage of key features not available in older versions. Among them are:

Checking the Apache Version from CLI

You can easily determine which version of Apache your dedicated cloud server is running from the command line with: httpd -v Running that command will give you output that will look like this: [root@host]# httpd -v Server version: Apache/2.4.16 (Unix) Server built: Dec 23 2015 11:28:39 Cpanel::Easy::Apache v3.32.6 rev9999 In this case, Server version shows that the server is running Apache 2.4.16.

Checking the Apache Version from WHM

You also can check the Apache version from WebHost Manager:
  1. In WHM’s left menu, locate the Server Status section and click on Apache Status. You can begin typing “Apache” in the search menu to quickly narrow the choices.
  2. The current Apache version will be displayed next to Server Version on the Apache Status page. In this case, it’s version 2.4.16.ApacheStatusPageInWHM
