Checking your IBM HTTP Server version



At times, you might need to determine the version of your IBM HTTP Server installation.



  1. Change directory to the installation root of the Web server. For example, this is /opt/IBMIHS on a Solaris machine.

  2. Find the subdirectory that contains apache.exe (on a Windows platforms) or apachectl (on a UNIX-based platforms, such as z/OS, Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX)

  3. On a Windows platform, issue:

    apache.exe -V

  4. On a UNIX-based platforms issue:

    ./apachectl -V 4



The version is shown in the "Server version:" field and will looks something like the following

Server version: IBM_HTTP_Server/2.0.47 Apache/2.0.47 
Server built: July 2 2004 20:38:36 
Server's Module Magic Number: 20020903:4.
