I upgraded our Apache web server to 2.4.29 today.
Changes with Apache 2.4.29 *) mod_unique_id: Use output of the PRNG rather than IP address and pid, avoiding sleep() call and possible DNS issues at startup, plus improving randomness for IPv6-only hosts. [Jan Kaluza] *) mod_rewrite, core: Avoid the 'Vary: Host' response header when HTTP_HOST is used in a condition that evaluates to true. PR 58231 [Luca Toscano] *) mod_http2: v0.10.12, removed optimization for mutex handling in bucket beams that could lead to assertion failure in edge cases. [Stefan Eissing] *) mod_proxy: Fix regression for non decimal loadfactor parameter introduced in 2.4.28. [Jim Jagielski] *) mod_authz_dbd: fix a segmentation fault if AuthzDBDQuery is not set. PR 61546. [Lubos Uhliarik <luhliari redhat.com>] *) mod_rewrite: Add support for starting External Rewriting Programs as non-root user on UNIX systems by specifying username and group name as third argument of RewriteMap directive. [Jan Kaluza] *) core: Rewrite the Content-Length filter to avoid excessive memory consumption. Chunked responses will be generated in more cases than in previous releases. PR 61222. [Joe Orton, Ruediger Pluem] *) mod_ssl: Fix SessionTicket callback return value, which does seem to matter with OpenSSL 1.1. [Yann Ylavic]
I apologize for the downtime. This resolved to operator error this time.
When I got to the co-location facility, I discovered that when I moved all the virtual machines off of the failed hardware, I neglected to set the boot option to start the virtual machines on boot up so they were waiting on a manual start.
I also got a new BIOS that was supposed to fix the HME vulnerability from Asus but when I attempted to install it the motherboard said, “Not a proper BIOS”. So back to the drawing board on that one.
