httpd_z.exe connecting to on port 443


Recommended Posts

I assume this is done to either check who/what IP installed Unisform Server ZeroXI OR to check if updates for the installted modules are available. Since the installed modules can be updated and selected individuallym the purpose of the portable install, I assume this is to give information about the user's IP.

Not something I like in particular.


Using a VPN I am fine, you can have my ever changing VPN IP if you like, though other, novice users might think this IP should be allowed since it connects to a secure port et violà their IP is given to you without telling them that you collect such information.


Heads up people, if you are concerned with your privacy you can safely block httpd_z.exe from connecting to on port 443.


If this has something to do with updates or nececarry connections to actually USE Uniform Server please do let me know.


Not hearing back about this for me means this is done to collect user data and will be kept on block.

This now happens when opening phpMyAdmin.


I assume this is to check if phpMyAdmin has the latest version running.


These IPs are all on CDN77.COM, so I assume this can be ALLOWED.


Would be good to let users know that phpMyAdmin will try and check. Sure not everyone is super cautions etc but the people that are like to know what is going on.


And yes after allowing the connection attempt once this message came up.



A newer version of phpMyAdmin is available and you should consider upgrading. The newest version is 4.4.12, released on 2015-07-20.


Thank you.

You can disable phpMyAdmin version check as follows:

Edit file: C:\UniServerZ\home\us_opt1\config.inc.php
Note: Your path to the file may be different.

Add the following line as shown (last line):
/* Other core phpMyAdmin settings */
$cfg['VersionCheck'] = false; // Disable version check

All the best
