Recommended Posts

In order to update Apache 2.4.x to the latest version available, simply follow these steps:

  1. Download and extract Apache 2.4.x Win32 from this link: https://www.apachelounge.com/download/
    • Note: Be sure you installed latest 14.30.30708.0 Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2022 : vc_redist_x64 or vc_redist_x86
  2. rename the file "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe" to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\bin\httpd_z.exe"
  3. if Apache is installed as a service, copy “UniServerZ\core\apache2\bin\libeay32.dll” and “UniServerZ\core\apache2\bin\ssleay32.dll” to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\bin\"
  4. copy “UniServerZ\core\apache2\conf\httpd.conf” to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\conf\httpd.conf" (old file over new)
  5. copy the files from the “UniServerZ\core\apache2\conf\extra\” folder to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\conf\extra\" (old files over new)
  6. copy the "UniServerZ\core\apache2\conf\extra_us\" folder to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\conf\extra_us\"
  7. copy the “UniServerZ\core\apache2\logs\” folder to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\logs\"
  8. copy the “UniServerZ\core\apache2\server_certs\” folder to "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\server_certs\
  9. stop Apache (from UniController or Windows Services ["us_apache_1"])
  10. delete (or backup) the files in the "UniServerZ\core\apache2\" folder and replace them with the ones from "httpd-2.4.x-win32-VS16\Apache24\"
  11. restart Apache (from UniController or Windows Services ["us_apache_1"])

Hope this helps! :)
